“We’ve got two good running backs in Chamberlain and (junior) Curtis Levasseur (a junior) that will block for each other. They’re both tough, aggressive, hard-nosed kids. We’ll go with a one-back set and a two-back set and be a run-first team, hoping to use that to open things up with the pass.”
Junior Alek Kuljic figures to see time at tight end, wide receiver and/or H-back, while senior Dave Connolly will anchor the defensive line at nose guard or defensive end. Chris Gregory, with good size and experience, will also be counted on at defensive tackle. Junior Robbie Glavin has had an outstanding camp and will be used both ways at receiver and cornerback.
Chamberlain will be at inside linebacker; Carey and Levasseur are also impressive there, and juniors Corey Elliott and Nick Papa are vying for the other spot. Glaster will start at cornerback while Flaherty is at safety.
“Our junior class is very strong,” said Brotherton, who has Glen Foster and Bill Carey back as assistant coaches. “Enthusiasm and work ethic are our strong points. We’re going to build the program up, and know that’s not going to happen overnight, but we want to get maximum effort from everybody. We’ll be mentally tough with dedication and enthusiasm for the game.”
