South Range (Div. V)


South Range (Div. V)

Head Coach: Dan Yeagley

Coaching Staff: Wayne Allegretto, Rich McClellan, Mike Owen, Dan Szolek, Paul Lindstrom, Jason Swiger, Don Allen, Chris Hoff

Offensive/defensive Formations: Wing-T offense/50 defense

Outlook: The Raiders have made the playoffs seven of the last eight years and they look poised for a return to the postseason this fall. South Range, which lost to Warren JFK in last year's regional final, returns 18 lettermen, including five starters on each side of the ball. Quarterback Jack Dawson and speedy running back Steve Bensinger are back on offense, as are three linemen: Center Dan Pierce, guard Mike Hudak and tackle Levi Kenney. Bensinger, Pierce and Hudak also were defensive starters, joining Charlie Lengyel and Andrew Padach as returnees. Crestview, Columbiana and Mineral Ridge should be in the mix for the league crown, but until someone knocks off the Raiders, they have to be considered the favorites.

Returning Lettermen: Dawson, Novak, Willison, Rach, Padach, Bensinger, Melnick, Razo, Lengyel, Jones, Gause, Hudak, Kenney, Heck, Clegg, Snyder, Biroschak.
