2014 Whippany Park Wildcats Football Preview

Whippany Park is a well-coached team with good fundamentals: the QB can throw, run, and lead the offense. The defense can tackle, strip the ball, and make short-yardage stops on runs. The offense can make big plays, make their blocks, run downhill…this is a team that understands the mechanics of football. Now they need to believe in themselves. With more intensity, this team can bust through last year’s record and set everyone straight: Whippany Park should never again be underestimated.

Best Attribute
The Wildcats have a stacked offensive and defensive line with six returning varsity players including G/DL Nick Trevisan, OT/DL Justin Lam, DT/OT William Sevilla, DE/LB/G Phil Lolatte, DL/OT Ryan Fields, and DT/OT Joseph Sette.

Other Key Contributors
John McGuire played free safety on defense last year, CB/HB Joe Michalewsky has a lot of potential and started on defense last year as a sophomore, and FB/LB Michael Poulter is a big, physical kid who should help replace Nick Cetrulo.

Chink in the Armor
The Wildcats will start a new quarterback, and they graduated their backfield.

A Look Back at 2013
In the Hopatcong game, Whippany Park turned the ball over with several picks and a fumble. The receivers need to get back to the ball, and that ball needs to be protected on runs. The big turnovers decided a game that should have been a very good matchup; these teams were much closer than the score indicated. In the Boonton game, a thirty-seven yard field goal nudged Boonton past Whippany Park (how many high school players kick like that). Whippany Park matched up well with Boonton, Hopatcong, and Wallkill Valley. They executed on offense, but need to clean up the turnovers to keep their momentum, and these games could have easily gone their way.

Must-See Game
I’m planning to watch the Boonton/Whippany Park game because I want to be there when the Wildcats realize all they can do (10/17, 7PM, Boonton).

Post-Season Hurdle
Harrison was two spots above Whippany Park in the North 2, Group 2 Power Point Standings but the Wildcats beat Harrison 42-6. Clearly, this team should be much higher in the standings and could make the playoff bracket next year.
