When Freeport quarterback Ryan Weigold (6-2, 205, Sr.) puts the ball in the air, he'll have plenty of options, as the Yellowjackets have one of the deepest, most talented receiving groups in Class AA.
Leading the way are the Hochbein twins — Dylan (6-2, 180, Sr.) and Brandon (6-2, 180, Sr.) — and Justin Brestensky (5-10, 155, Sr.). The three combined for 107 catches last season. Dylan Hochbein is the WPIAL's second-leading returning receiver (54 catches, 873 yards). He also tied for the team lead with nine touchdowns. Brandon Hochbein (29 catches, 479 yards) and Brestensky (24 catches, 209 yards) are also coming off excellent seasons.
"We're really excited about our receivers. We've got some talented kids, and we've got some speed," Freeport coach John Gaillot said.
Weigold missed half of last season with a torn ACL. He replaces Andrew Romanchak, who passed for 1,922 yards and 19 touchdowns. Ian Miller (5-9, 175, Sr.) will start at running back after rushing for 358 yards and five touchdowns.
