Cory-Rawson Hornets Football

If you want a sleeper in Region 22, the Hornets might be the one. C-R
hasn’t had a winning season since 2003, but the pieces are in place for
a solid run. Eight starters return on each side of the ball, but surviving the
rugged Blanchard Valley Conference (four playoff teams last year) will
be key in head coach Andy Schafer’s second season.


Cory-Rawson (3-7)

* Players To Watch – DB/WR John Anderson (5-8, 160, Sr.); RB/DL Ben Niese (5-10, 165. Sr.); C Chad Thacker (6-1, 225, Sr.); OT/LB David Hector (6-1, 220, Sr.)

* Outlook –
If you want a sleeper in Region 22, the Hornets might be the one. C-R hasn’t had a winning season since 2003, but the pieces are in place for a solid run.

Eight starters return on each side of the ball, but surviving the rugged Blanchard Valley Conference (four playoff teams last year) will be key in head coach Andy Schafer’s second season.

Anderson is a three-year starter and racked up 1,318 all-purpose yards last year along with 46 tackles. Niese (33 Tackles, 510 yards rushing), Thacker (C, 6-1, 225) and Hector (64 tackles) will be big contributors on both sides of the ball as well.

“Last year was a learning year,” Schafer said. “We learned a new style of offense, defense, attitude and work ethic.  This year there are no excuses. We have a lot of guys that have been working hard to turn the program around. The big question is do we “believe” we can do it? 

“The tools are in place – now we just have to prove it on the field.”
