2022 PREVIEW

A new era of Berwick football begins with former Dawg Mike Bennett taking over the program. Coach Bennett was part of two state championship teams as a player and went on to play at Syracuse. He s hoping to bring back some of that success to the Berwick program which has still consistently posted wins but has lacked championship titles over the past decade. The Bulldogs will look to become more disciplined and more explosive on offense and if that happens, they could contend for the division and the district.

Berwick does return starting quarterback Matt Loncyznski with Ethan Lear as his backup. The passing game will have to improve for the offense to be more efficient. Ryan Bankes will step in as the full time running back. Either Jimmy DeAndrea or Mike Vaughn will be the new fullback. Bo Sheptock returns and will play in the backfield and at wide receiver. Drey Wilk is also a returning starter at wide receiver and Spencer Kishbaugh will move from tight end to receiver. Billy Hanson and Carmine Martz will provide depth. Rowan Slabinski, Aiden Weist, and Alex Hacker will all be in the mix for the tight end spot.

The Bulldogs do lack size up front on offense but bring back an experienced group with four starters returning: left tackle Chase Schuckers, left guard Bruce Hartman, center Liam Carroll, and right tackle Harrison Snyder. Matt Gordner and J.J. Leonard will compete for the right guard position.

Defense will once again be the Dawgs strength with All-District 2 linebacker Kishbaugh back for his senior season. Three starters return up front in Snyder and Hacker at defensive end and Hartman at defensive tackle. Slabinski, Weist, Mike Fell, Schuckers, and Carroll could all see playing time in the rotation on the defensive line. Braylon Hawkins will be new at outside linebacker with DeAndrea taking over on the inside. The secondary is also expereinced with Wilk and Sheptock back the safties and Bankes returning at cornerback. The other corner will be Lear or Hanson.

Luke Peters will take over the plackicking and punting duties.  Lear will be the long snapper.

QUOTE FROM COACH BENNETT: We have starters back on both sides of the ball. So we have some game experience. We are working through player development throughout the summer. There are things we have to work on on both sides of the ball but I like where we are at at this point of the summer. We are challenging our kids physically and mentally and so far they are responding. We will see what we have August 26th.
