Tis the season, as high school football fans ready up for another exciting season of bone-crushing, teeth-jarring, edge-on-your-seat, under the lights, footbal! Okay, maybe that's a little much...
Nonetheless, teams in the WIPALs AAAA Southeastern PA Conference return to the fields in one week to battle for the privilege of calling themselves, champions. Here in Canonsburg, we're looking forward to an exciting year of possibilities! Our boys and the coaching staff have been working hard to get ready for this seasons schedule that puts us up against some of the toughest teams in the area.
In an article published on the MSA Sports Network website, on August 13, 2014, staff writes had this to say about the Canon-McMillan team.
CANON-McMILLAN BIG MACS:
These have been lean years for Canon-McMillan football. The Big Macs have not been to the playoffs since 2008 and have not won more than one game in a season since they finished 3-6 in 2009. The last four years, Canon-Mac has finished with a combined record of 3-34.
Second year coach Ron Coder continues to bring the enthusiasm to the blue and gold as they hope to add to their win total and be in the hunt for a postseason berth this fall.
The Big Macs do return six starters on offense and five on defense led by quarterback Jordan Smith. The 6’4 junior threw for over 200 yards a year ago. Smith will rely on senior Justin Mattola to anchor the rushing attack and sophomore wide receiver Logan Higham to be a big target in the pass game.
Canon-McMillan has plenty of experience returning on the line of scrimmage including University of Pitt recruit Alex Paulina. The senior checks in at 6’4 and 280-pounds. Joining him up front are 6’2, 275-pound senior George Carson, 6’2 225-pound senior Jared Hladycz and 5’11 230-pound Will Graziani. Junior linebacker Shane Danyo and senior defensive back Dylan Dzikowski are two players to watch on defense.
