2014 West Morris Central Wolfpack Football Preview

 

Here is what scares me about West Morris this year: nobody is talking about them. Everyone is focused on Morristown, Mendham, Delby, Randolph and Morris Knolls in this division. But nobody seems to be concerned with what the Wolfpack is up to – which is exactly what Coach Kevin Hennelly wants. It’s actually kind of surprising that they are in this position considering they did go 7-4 last year against a tough schedule, they returned a lot of key players and their coach has more state championship rings than anyone else in this division.

The Talent
The thing about West Morris Central is that Hennelly instills a work ethic in the off-season that sprouts average JV players from one year into star varsity players the next. Without a doubt, there will be players no one even heard of that will be big play makers week in and week out for the next nine weeks. But there are some returning starters that opposing teams need to focus on. The first is the Wolfpack’s workhorse at runningback: Connor Thompson. Also coming back will be senior QB Collin Sokolowski, who is a nifty passer with the ability to scramble. Kevin Sears is also a hard-hitting defensive back who does a lot offensively, from catching, blocking and running the ball. Another versatile player is center, defensive tackle and kicker Thomas Stoll.

Chances of Making it to the Big Dance
Can WMC make it to the postseason and beyond this year? Yes, absolutely. But it is going to be an up hill road with steep inclines and loose foot holes. But they can do it. They could actually go 4-4 by the eight game cut-off and still make it to the postseason. Even if they lose to every hard team on their schedule, they should learn valuable lessons that will prepare them for the postseason. Their regular season schedule will likely be harder than their playoff schedule.
