Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Sharpsville Blue Devils

SHARPSVILLE, Pa -

The Sharpsville football team has been to the playoffs nine straight seasons. 

The Blue Devils have nine starters back offensively, including two 1,000 yard rushers.

"Bobby Besser and Cameron Prebble are our halfbacks. On our line; Tristan Stoner, Matt Harenchar, and Anthony Yeager. We expect a lot out of those three right there and we have Jaquay Hubbard who's a junior and getting a lot of looks from places. He's been outstanding for us. With our line and our backs, we're hoping to control the ball on offense," said Paul Piccirilli, Sharpsville football coach.

The Blue Devils did have a hole to fill at the quarterback position.

"Nick Alexander, it was funny, he came to our school halfway through last year and we said you got to earn your spot. We had Luke Levis who was way more adequate as a quarterback. They were tied and we said we could use Luke someplace else and he said that's fine. Nick has come in and done a super job for us," Piccirilli said.

In order to keep their playoff appearance streak in tact, Piccirilli expects big improvements from his defensive unit.

"We got to get a little faster, a little more aggressive. Something we weren't last year. We gave up 26 points a game last year and that's the most we've given up in a long time," Piccirilli said.
