Williamsport Wildcats

Monocacy Valley Athletic League Outlooks

September 01, 1991



Coach: Ray Montini, sixth year

Assistant coaches: John Bailey,Randy Longnecker, Rick Carbaugh, Henry Smith, Tom Dzur

Last year's record: 3-7 overall, 2-7 in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League

Top returnees: Seniors, tight end Frank King, guard/linebacker Mike Sease, running back/cornerback Danny Rease

Top newcomers: Senior, quarterback Craig Hammond; juniors, fullback Brad Weaver, fullback Dante Hawkins

Coach's comments: "We have very little experience, so it may take us awhile to get on our feet. Our main goal this season isto be competitive, wins and losses will take care of themselves. We just have to take it one game at a time. We have been a run-oriented team the past five years I've been here, and nothing will change thatthis year."

The Carroll County Sun's outlook: This year is definitely shaping up as a rebuilding year for Montini and his Wildcats. With only 12 returning letter-winners back from last year (a lot of those letters came from playing on special teams) and 26 players on varsity, Montini's main objective this season is to remain competitive. That may be tough this year in the MVAL, particularly if his Wildcats run into injury problems. Under Montini, the Wildcats have been a running team and nothing will change that this year. Returning senior running back Rease will carry much of the load offensively along with newcomers Weaver and Hawkins at fullback. The Wildcats are a hard-working group that comes up short on experience and depth. It may be a long year.
