Here are some of the tight ends to watch in the WVC and LFC in 2018:

Najese Hood, Sr. – Meyers
Hood caught 19 passes for 418 yards which is over 20 yards per catch. He was part of a very efficient passing attack and will be key to the Mohawks success on both sides of the ball. Hood was an NPF Second Team WVC Small School tight end and a First Team WVC Small School defensive back.
Hood Highlights

Mike Malone, Jr. – Abington Heights
At 6-4, 230 pounds, Malone is a blocking force and an impact player on offense. He had 16 receptions for 236 yards last season which ended up being 14.8 yards per reception. On defense he had 76 tackles (51 solo/25 assists), 11 tackles for loss, and 4 sacks.  Malone was an NPF Honorable Mention LFC Division I tight end and First Team defensive lineman.
Malone Highlights

Justin LoBasso, Sr. – Honesdale
LoBasso returns as the Hornets leading receiver with 24 receptions for 365 yards. He also brings some toughness with his blocking and on the defensive side of the ball. LoBasso was an NPF Second Team LFC Division II defensive lineman.
LoBasso Highlights

Zach Rebar, Jr. – Mid Valley
In a run-oriented offense, Rebar was the best option in the passing game last season for the Spartans. But more important, he blocked for two 1,000 yard rushers. Rebar was an NPF First Team LFC Division III tight end.
Rebar Highlights

Brett Wargo, Sr. – Old Forge
Wargo returns as one of the Blue Devils’ team leaders. With a combination of strength and speed, he solidifies a position that is important in the Old Forge offense. He caught 14 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns last season. Wargo was an NPF Second Team LFC Division III linebacker last season.
Wargo Highlights

Sleeper
Tyler Motichka, Sr. – North Pocono
It will be interesting where the Trojans use Motichka who could play several positions. He probably will fit best in a tight end or H-Back position where he can block or be used in the passing game. Motichka will make an impact for North Pocono this season.
