Joppatowne Mariners

Football 1991/the Teams, Coaches And Players

September 01, 1991

Coach: Karlis Larson, fourth year.

Assistants: John Jones, Bill Waibel, Carvel Tatum, Tim Geppi.

Last year's record: 7-4, Class 1A quarterfinalist.

Returnees: Damon Davies (sr., QB/WR, S), Dan Rieth (sr., OT, DT), Bill Hadrys (sr., C, DT), Mike Harris (jr., OG/FB, LB), Chad Young (sr., TE/OT, NG), Mike Taylor (sr., TB, LB), Mark Johnson (sr., SE, CB), Chris Weber (jr., TE, LB), Jay Jay Owsik (sr., sp. teams), Pat Watson (sr., OT), Chuck Hunter (so., QB, S), Rodney Briscoe (so., FB, LB), Vernon Wingfield (jr., TB/S), Chad Gray (so., TB, LB), Chris Carr (jr., OG, DT), Tye Rabuck (sr., OG, DT/CB), Dan Foxwell (sr., TE, K).

Top Newcomers: Joe Barrett (sr., FB, LB), Don Thomas (sr., DT).

Returnees: There's absolutely no standouts. Last year, we had Kilo Mack and B.J. Barnes, but this year everybody is pretty much on the same level. We have good players, but it's going to have to be a team effort all yearlong.

Harford County Sun's outlook: The Mariners had their best turnout for the team since 1982. Larson's squad is up to 30, but the best news is that most of them are experienced. Only five players graduated, and Larson kept a lot of youngsters on varsity last year. The offensive line of Watson (5-11, 235), Harris (6-2, 220), Hadrys (5-11, 205), Carr (6-0, 200) and Rieth (6-0, 235) along with top quarterback Davies give the Mariners a strong offense. If the Mariners continue to play a team-oriented game, especially on defense, they could pull off an upset or two and land in the top three.
