The Dynamos qualified for the WPIAL playoffs in 2012 for the 11th consecutive season, and second-year coach Dave Leasure is excited for his team's upcoming campaign.
"We look to compete with the better teams in our conference," Leasure said.
The Dynamos are without four key starters who graduated in Sean Dugan (first-team all-conference running back), Kyle Rogers (first-team all-conference), James Murray (first-team all-conference offensive lineman) and quarterback Jake Heilman. Dugan, who will most likely be the toughest player to replace, rushed for 1,738 yards on 227 attempts while scoring 20 touchdowns last season.
Justin Wilson (5-8, 150, Sr., WR/DB), Adam Lock (6-2, 200, Jr., TE/DE), Austin Kline (5-9, 180, Jr., RB), Robbie Korzon (6-2, 290, Sr., OL), Hunter Steihler (5-11, 220, Sr., OL), Tyler Igo (5-11, 235, Sr., OL), Nathan Shaw (6-1, 230, Sr., OL/DL), John Nicholson (5-9, 175, Sr., LB), Billy Barker (5-9, 170, Sr., LB) and Alex Demonte (5-10, 170, Sr., DE) are all returning starters.
The team's strength looks to be the offensive line, as five players have returned. Offensive tackles Korzon and Shaw, guard Stiehler, center Igo and tight end Lock will be five of the six starters for the powerful unit.
