2022 PREVIEW

After losing their first three games to very good opponents to start last season, the Warriors won 9 straight before bowing out in the PIAA state playoffs. They won another District 2 Class 6 A title although that will be their last one for at least two years. Delaware Valley moves to Class 5A for the next cycle which should give DV a better opportunity in states if they get there. They will have to fill some holes for 2022, but there is a good core to let them compete for division and district titles.

Quarterback is the biggest question mark although the Warriors always seem to come up with one and usually he ends being one of the best in the LFC. The competition is open during training camp and we will find out who it is when DV takes the field in Florida on August 26th. Paulie Weinrich will take over at tailback although he did carry the ball 108 times for 716 yards in 2021. Justin Kalitsnik returns at fullback while All-District 2 tight Aiden Black also is back for his junior season. Jayden Ramirez is the top returning receiver and there will be a battle in camp to see who joins him getting reps at the position.

The offensive line has three-year starter Justin Hernandez back at right tackle and Jacob Albaugh returns at left tackle.  How quickly the other three positions can get up to speed will determine how the Warriors fare early, especially with a brutal three-week run to start the season. Brennan Colville is penciled at left guard while Carter Faubel will get the first shot at center. The right guard position is up for grabs.

Defensively, Delaware Valley brings back two of the better defensive players in the LFC. Kalitsnik will remain at inside linebacker while Black moves from linebacker to defensive end. Weinrich is also a returning starter at outside linebacker while the other two linebacker spots will be decided during training camp. Pasquale Venetucci will play nose tackle and the other end is still to be determined. Landon Machado returns at cornerback and his brother Ryder Machado returns at safety. The other two defensive back positions have several candidates and will be settled before the first game.

Everett Bell returns as the placekicker while Black serves as the long snapper. The punter will be named before the season starts.

QUOTE FROM COACH OLSOMMER: Need to replace some veteran linemen on both sides of the ball.
