Tim Allen - WR/DB

Tim Allen
 
Tim was one of those guys that had a way of coming up with big plays. On special teams he was always one of the first guys to get in on a tackle. He added depth to our receiving corps and handled the free safety position.

Jon Andrews
 
Jon was another leader that used his abilities to think and react to many different situations. His years of experience and knowledge compared to having another coach on the field.

Krys Callahan - TE/DL

Krys Callahan
 
Krys did a great job for us in leading the team. As a captain, his job was to set an example, the way he played inspired all to follow. He will leave Wellsboro High School with the most receptions from the tight end position, this was even though he missed two games!

Andy DeLeonardis
 
Andy is probably the most unselfish player on the team. As a backup tailback last year, used on our sort-yardage situations, he probably had his sights set on a starting position in 1997. We knew his talents but asked him to make a move to fullback, he did so without hesitation. Andy is a great leader by example both on and off the field.

Chris Fuller - OL/DL

Chris Fuller
 
Chris' willingness to "do the little things right" placed him in the category of being one of the top linemen in the league. Good speed, size, and strength came through hard work and determination.

Travis Gettle - OL/DL

Travis Gettle
 
Travis is an excellent example of how someone with great size can move to the top if he is willing to work all year round. His great strength in his legs, and his better than average speed made him a driving force in our offensive game plan each week.

Adam Gruzlewski - OL/DL

Adam Gruzlewski
 
Adam always did what was asked of him. His desire to place the team's goals ahead of his own was evident this past season as he made the transition from tight end to guard without any complaints or problems.

Wade Harlan
 
The biggest player in the history of Wellsboro High School football! The combined size, strength, and speed of Wade also made him one of the most highly recruited players in the state.

Jamie Jones - RB/DB

Jamie Jones
 
Jamie was one of the best running backs in the NTL. His ability to run the ball and catch it made him a threat every time he was in the game. His leadership as a captain was also a great plus.

Matt Nickeson - FB/LB

Matt Nickeson
 
Matt really did an outstanding job in the middle of our defense. The linebackers were a concern of the staff at the beginning of the year, but a strength of our defense by the end. Matt's willingness to play when hurt, and to push himself, is the reason for this linebacker's success.

Kyle Norton - QB/DB

Kyle Norton
 
Kyle was in a position of "high profile" all year. His ability to work hard and lead by example was not unnoticed by our team as he was our elected captain. We opened up our offense more because of his ability to get the ball into the receiver's hands and taking what the defense gave us.

Nate Singer - WR/LB

Nate Singer
 
Nate has a lot of athletic skills that we used on our special teams, his only problem was lack of experience. He made up for this in attitude and hustle during practice. Always willing to try and learn, attending practice, and working hard made the staff wish he had been with us for four years.

Josh Zimmerman - WR/LB

Josh Zimmerman
 
Josh's improvement in catching the ball put a big plus in our offensive attack. His size and speed made him one of our more versatile athletes at the receiver position. Playing wide out or tight end, he gave us a much needed "big" target.
