2023 PREVIEW

The Bulldogs lost some very good skill players to graduation and transfers, but do return a very experienced line on both sides of the ball. Berwick will try to avoid back-to-back losing seasons, something that is not considered the norm. However, the coaching staff expects winning football to return in 2023.

It will be a new backfield for the Dawgs with Ethan Lear taking over at quarterback, Tyler Winter at running back and Jimmy DeAndrea at fullback. DeAndrea, Braylon Hawkins, an Gavin Galutia could also see time at tailback while Rocco Romeo will be the backup fullback. Billy Hanson returns at wide receiver with Ty’Meere Wilkerson, Alex Estrella, Caleb May, and Josh Kishbaugh all in the mix at the position. Aiden Weist is the new tight end with Romeo his backup.

Chase Schucker is back at left tackle, Liam Carroll at left guard, J.J. Leonard at right guard and Harrison Snyder at right tackle. Gavin Jones will take over at center. Nico Lonczynski and Matt Gordner will provide depth on the offensive line.

There will be two new defensive ends for Berwick – Weist and Leonard. Schuckers and Mike Fell are back at defensive tackle with Gordner and Lonczynski providing depth inside. Snyder moves from end to outside linebacker and will be joined by returning starter Braylon Hawkins. Carroll and D’Andrea are experienced at inside linebacker. Kishbaugh returns at cornerback and will be joined by May.  Hanson is also a returning starter at safety and Estrella will play the other safety position.

Luke Peters is back as the kicker and Lear will be the long snapper.

QUOTE FROM COACH BENNETT: Very excited for upcoming season. We have a nice mix of experience coming back with some younger guys that will have to step up in positions that we need. We have had a great summer so far and we have to keep that momentum going into the season.
