Philo Football

The Electrics were close last year. Two straight losses to end the
season (and two 2-point losses) kept Philo from earning the program’s
fifth postseason berth and first since 1995. The Electrics are 0-4 in
the playoffs, but that could change this season.

*Philo (7-3): The Electrics were close last year. Two straight losses to end the season (and two 2-point losses) kept Philo from earning the program’s fifth postseason berth and first since 1995. The Electrics are 0-4 in the playoffs, but that could change this season.

Expectations have grown for a program that raised funds and independently paid for new field turf at Sam Hatfield Stadium in the offseason. The excitement is real – and for good reason.

Head coach and alumnus Dirk Lincicome (19-11 in three years) returns a solid cast that includes senior QB/DB Zak Sheridan (5-9, 160/12 TDs rushing), senior RB/DB/P Nathan Delozier (5-10, 170/39.3 yards per punt) and senior TE/DE Chase Hambel (6-4, 235/11 sacks).

Other key players are seniors Hunter Smith (WR/DB, 5-9, 165), Luke Miller (WR/DB, 5-9, 165), Casey Mayle (OL/DL, 5-11, 220), Connor Church (OL/DL, 6-0, 220) and Andrew Dorman (TE/DL, 6-4, 215).

The Electrics will play their first game on their new turf in Week 2 against new non-league opponent Licking Valley.
