Abington Heights vs Valley View preview
Abington Heights knew this season was going to be tough. With 22 seniors graduated from a District championship team. The comets have struggled with experience through the first four weeks but not desire.
Nick Gronsky said "I think we are absolutely growing as a team. We are just working day in and day out, After each game we are able to take something away what we did wrong and what we did good. And just build upon those things."
Matt Lastauskas says " just a young talented team the seniors and juniors that we have are really hard working. Everyone just comes up here and does what they are supposed to do and we just got to keep minimizing the mistakes and just keep doing what we are doing."
What Matt is doing is leading the team in tackles while Kaleb Sherman paces the comets ground game on offense. Abington will be a tougher team to beat then in the first week when they were shutout.
Mike Malone said "I think are line got a lot better, our skills guys getting their routes down and I think we are just getting better has a team."
"Just got to keep fighting I guess" added Lastauskas.
Valley view comes into this game with one of the more potent running attacks in the conference. The cougars are averaging nearly three hundred yards per game on the ground. The coaching staff credits the offensive line and center Connor Judge.
Coach George Howantiz said " Other than our quarterback he is like the quarterback 1A I call him. It is big having him there. He smart, he’s tough and he is aggressive, he is really what is making our offense go."
"Pretty much just make sure everyone knows where they are blocking and who they are blocking" added Connor judge.
Connor talked about what his biggest improvement is
"My feet, they were not as good last year but they are a lot better know. "
Valley view is looking for more balance on offense but their defense has played at a high level from week 1.
