After posting first winning season in more than 10 years, Warrensburg football must replace some parts

Warrensburg

Head coach: Mike Perrone

Last year’s record: 7-2

Playoff result: lost to Cambridge in Section 2 Class D semifinals

Returning starters: Evan MacDuff (senior quarterback/free safety), Hunter Mosher (senior offensive lineman/linebacker), Brandon Bailey (senior tight end/defensive end), Chris Wilson (senior offensive lineman/defensive lineman), Jesse Griffin (running back/defensive back), Mac Baker (junior running back/linebacker), Jaron Griffin (junior running back/offensive lineman/defensive lineman)

Graduated: Cole Lanfer (running back/linebacker), Greg Shambo (running back/linebacker), Trevor Prosser (running back/linebacker), Trevor Winchell (wide receiver/defensive back), Brandon Turner (offensive lineman/defensive lineman), Dan Monthony (offensive lineman/linebacker), Mike Gavin (offensive lineman/defensive lineman), Evan Rock (running back/defensive back)

Newcomers: Dylan Winchell (freshman running back/defensive back), Tristen Hitchcock (eighth grade offensive line/linebacker), Alex Jackson (offensive line/defensive line)

Outlook for season: After posting its first winning season in more than a decade in 2017, Warrensburg has to replace some key players.

“We have some big roles to fill, especially at the skill positions where we graduated close to 3,000 yards of offense in Cole Lanfer and Trevor Prosser,” said Perrone. “Our young players must step in those roles, and we must stay healthy. If that happens, we hope to compete for a Sectional title.”
