2021 PREVIEW

The Class of 2021 was one of the best to ever play in the black and gold at Lake-Lehman but it has left many holes for the upcoming season. It might take a little bit, but we expect the Black Knights to get up to speed quickly and be a contender in the division and battle for a district playoff spot in Class 3A.

One of the biggest holes to fill is at quarterback where Landon Schuckers takes over. Colby Roberts will be the new running back with Javon Borger and Cole Morio next on the depth chart. Joe Vegas is a returning starter at fullback and will be backed up by Santino Diana. Dustin Heinrich is back at wide receiver and will be joined by Mason Konigus, Brandon Ritinski, and Gavin Wallace. Michael Battin, Mason Lee, and Gavin Paraschak will be considered at tight end.

Only one offensive lineman returns but he is considered one of the best in the WVC. Jake Simoson will anchor the unit at left tackle. Aiden Gaus will be the left guard and Damian Napierkowski takes over at center. Chad Honeywell will play right guard and Mason Lee will be at right tackle. Jacob McHenry will provide depth.

Parashak, Battin, and Borger will rotate at defensive end while Simoson clogs the middle. Lee is also a returning starter at defensive tackle with Gaus, Aaron Graboski, and Honeywell will be involved up front. Vegas is a returning starter at linebacker with Roberts penciled in on the other side. Josh Ryan and Diana could also see time. Heinrich is the only returning starter in the secondary at safety. Konigus is at the other safety. Ritinski, Morio, and Wallace will play the corners.

Tanner Manzoni will do the kicking while Lee returns as the long snapper.
