What does Poland have returning this year?
We actually lost quite a bit and I think many positions are up in the air. On offense we lost our QB (Kent State) RB Lawman (Waynesburg) WR Morroco, TE Voitus (Waynesburg) LT Dibo, LG Kreatsoulas, C Bilas, RG Shriner and RT Bannon. Dibo and Shriner had opportunities at the next level but decided not to play.
As good as Lawman was we will be fine without him. Tyler Evan really came into his own and Turnbull is returning at FB. We also have some depth in the backfield, including a couple of very talented sophomores. Voitus was one hell of a good blocking TE but Hubble is returning and Markota played some varsity as a receiving TE. Machionda, Hiznay and Morucci are all returning at WR. All have very good speed. Hiznay was injured most of last year and for some reason Marchionda didn't get a whole lot of reps, even though he was probably the best receiver on the roster. The only problem we have is no height.
We did lose our whole oline but it isn't as bad as it sounds. Dibo and Shriner will be missed. Kreatsoulas was good and Bannon wasn't nearly as good as the rest. Bilas, who will be a junior, transferred to Mooney. However, I don't think it was legal and he might end up returning. Rizzo and Sesonsky (sp) were varsity caliber players last year and will be very tough. We also have a lineman who took a year off who is a big body and expect to start as well.
On the Dline we lost Voitus (DE) Jones (DE) Dibo (DT) and Genosso (DT). I think we will actually be much better at DT, which will be anchored by Shane Evan, who was our best last year. Voitus will be missed as a starter but we will still be okay there as well. We lost two of our LBs but I think this year's unit won't have much of a fall off, if any. We lost our starting two DBs as well as one safety. I think we will be much, much better on the one side and better on the other. I'm not sure we will lose anything at safety as well.
