Football team showing resilience

by Carter Spearry ‘16

Coach Chuck Kyle’s Wildcats are more than ready for the challenges that they face this year. Led by junior quarterback Dennis Grosel, the Wildcat offense has plenty of talent, including a terrific receiving core lead by David Shibley ‘15, Jack Cook ‘16, and Cal Grbac ‘16. The offensive line has plenty of depth and features junior Liam Eichenberg, ranked #39 in the nation by ESPN for the class of 2016.

On the other side of the ball, the defense will be carried on the shoulders of the exceptional defensive line. With defensive ends such as Ohio State commit Dre’Mont Jones ‘15, as well as standout Ray Brown ‘15, the Wildcats have a lethal combination on the outside edges.

Ranked with the #10 toughest schedule in the nation by, the ‘Cats have split against nationally ranked opponents, beating St. Joe’s Prep (Philadelphia), at home and falling just short in a tough 2OT road loss to Paramus Catholic (New Jersey).

With challenges like St. Edward ahead of them, the Wildcats continue to show grit on the gridiron. Oozing talent on both sides of the ball, the Wildcats have a real chance to make a run deep into the playoffs this year.
