The Coach

Name: Jim Delaney
Skinny: If anyone bleeds the colors of their team it’s Delaney. He’s a big weight room guy who does all the necessary things and then some in the off-season and in practice to prepare his team for battle. But if you are a Wildcat fan you love him on game days. His game plans are masterful and he seems to have six plays for every scenario. When you’re at games, watch the way his players block. They always are very explosive, get really low and have excellent leverage over the defenders. That’s all coaching right there folks! He’s yet to get a championship ring but I promise you Delaney will be in that club at some point in the near future.
2016 Record: 6-4

The Players

Franchise Player:  Junior QB Jacob Liscinsky (5-11, 195) is the reason why High Point fans buy PSLs (personal seat licenses). He can throw or run and is superb at making quick decisions on the run.
Hottest Selling Jersey: Jake Philip (5-9, 190) is as dynamic as they come. Opponents better not arm-tackle this runningback, else they will  pay the price in the form of a big-play.
All Unruly Watch: Senior runningback Robbie Turro (5-11, 175) is a guy we have our eye on. He’s been a bit anonymous behind big names like Liscinsky, Musilli and Philip. But I like how he’s quietly and consistently getting it done.
Under the Radar: Two guys that will be household names this season will be senior linebacker Ryan McCarrick (5-9, 180) and junior lineman Liam Whitteaker (5-10, 275). McCarrick is an undersized guy that plays big and is literally in on every tackle. Whitteaker has dedicated himself to the weight room and can squat over 500-pounds. His offseason training is translating very well in the preseason.
Benching the Weight Room: Senior fullback Chad Musilli (5-11, 200) will be the heart and soul of this team and it’s due to the training he did in the offseason. He can clean 315-pounds like he’s just lifting the bar without any weight on it. His ability to get 3-tough yards any time will wear defenses down all season long.
Throwback: You got to love senior center Eric Frei (6-2). Barely 200-pounds, he’s one of the best linemen in the conference. He’s a no frills, no fanfare kind of guy who doesn’t make mistakes.

Last season, High Point did a great job getting themselves all the way to the semi-finals.  Now that many of those starters from last season are back, they want to go the distance…and there is no reason they can’t.  It just won’t be an easy road though.  But here is my reason why this group can very well be walking through the tunnels of MetLife Stadium come December – the fact that they run, and run, and run, and run, and run.  Last season, the ‘Cats rushed for nearly 300-yards a game.  You should see what these opposing defenses look like at the end of these games.  Each opposing player loses five pounds of water weight and is extremely exhausted.  HP’s offense is a great defense.  That’s a strategy that can take them all the way to the big game.
