Chris Morral - Head Coach

The most difficult part of football is overcoming adversity. Quite often when I think about this football team, I think about the young men that were able to overcome adversity and refuse to settle for anything less than the best.

Instead of addressing the seniors I decided to break a tradition and honor the entire 2008 Hornet Football Team. As a coach for the Hornets over the past 12 seasons I can honestly say that I am very proud of the accomplishments and overall team effort given throughout the 2008 season.

Even though many individual school records were broken this year and many others were close to being broken, the accomplishments the coaching staff will most remember are the positive relationships each of these athletes formed with each other and the true sense of teamwork that each of them strived to accomplish. I look back to team camp when the coaching staff demanded the athletes to challenge themselves and strive for more. It was during that time that I realized that each of these seniors, along with many others on the team, had a mental edge like no other group I have seen. For many of these athletes, their individual fear of failure was their biggest motivation and it was clear that each of these young men were determined to give it everything they had on a daily basis.

As this past season started there were, without a doubt, very high expectations of this team. Talk among the football community was intense and talk among the players themselves was competitive. As the season passed, it was obvious that this team wanted to be a part of something special.

Individually, each of you will face challenges and adversity. As I have told every senior football player leaving the program from my first year of coaching was to remember one thing: "You're always working to play a perfect game, but you're never going to achieve it and play that perfect game. Out on the field you never know which play is going to be that one that can change the complexion of the game. You've just got to play every play to the best of your ability. You should look back and have no regrets about how you performed and how hard you worked at it."

The coaching staff wishes these young men the best of luck in all future challenges and, as always, wishes them the best of luck in the most important game of all, LIFE! Remember, you will not always play that perfect game, but play every play and every day to the best of your ability and you will have no regrets.

Senior Football Players

Marshall Bower - WR/DB

Marshall Bower
 
Marshall entered the 2008 football season with very little knowledge of the game and no game experience. By the time the year ended, Marshall took on a great deal of knowledge about the game and contributed a great deal to special teams for the Hornets. Marshall was the type of athlete the coaching staff could put anywhere on the field and expect the job to get done. This was Marshall's first year playing football and as a coach I wish we could have had him for four years. Each practice Marshall was placed on scout team and he gave every single play his very best effort. I can remember a time during our Coudersport scrimmage when he caught his first touchdown pass and I didn't think he was ever going to stop running. Marshall is an outstanding young man that I believe will do great at whatever he chooses to do.

Ronny Camacho - OL/DL

Ronny Camacho
 
Ronny is an athlete who refuses to give up. Throughout most of the season in 2008 Ronny was often undersized but always seemed to find a way to make a play. In the 2008 season Ronny recorded 48 tackles, 1 caused fumble, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 sack. Week in and week out Ronny was a player that could be counted on to step into a position and give it his best. I often asked Ronny throughout practices what I could do or say to him to make him angry because it was during those times that he played his best. As I look back on all the practices, games, film sessions, and team camps, I can never remember a time in which Ronny criticized other players. Ronny was always very positive and gave his best effort on the field. Ronny has a never-give-up attitude and worked hard to become the best he could be. For that reason, Ronny was respected by his teammates and coaches. If Ronny can continue on this path he will experience great success.

Mitch Christman - TE/DL

Mitch Christman
 
Throughout the summer of 2008 there was not one athlete more dedicated than Mitch Christman. Mitch was continuously in the weight room and participated in every summer practice we had. Mitch recorded 73 tackles on the year and was second on the team in solo tackles. Mitch also had 6 receptions for 92 yards with a 15.3 average/catch. Mitch also played a special role on the team in 2008 as he contributed significantly on special teams and was elected as a captain. The one thing I will never forget about Mitch is his willingness to do whatever is asked of him. Mitch had an outstanding year for the Hornets and his knowledge of the game became very obvious during our week 8 game at Canton. Overall, Mitch ended the 2008 season with 40 solo tackles, 33 assisted tackles, 4 pass breaks, 5 caused fumbles, and 2 sacks. Mitch is also currently the valedictorian of the class of 2008 and has a very bright future. It was truly a great honor to coach this young man and see his growth over the past four years. Good luck!

Jake Coolidge - RB/DB

Jake Coolidge
 
Jake was a four-year starter within the football program at Wellsboro and was a player who made things happen on the field. It was an honor to coach Jake and see the development of a boy into a young adult throughout four years playing football. Prior to the 2008 season Jake was selected as a pre-season player to watch in the Twin Tiers and NTL. In 2007, Jake was named to the 2nd team NTL and 1st team All Twin Tiers. In 2008, Jake rushed for 591 yards and accumulated 551 yards receiving. Jake also led the team in touchdowns with 10 and broke a school record for interception return yards with 271. Jake also led the team in all-purpose yards with 1,637. Defensively Jake recorded 55 tackles and 6 interceptions. I am sure I can go on and on with more statistics and records but the thing I will most remember about this young man is his attitude toward the game and his ability to lead by example. Jake is an outstanding young man with great athletic ability. Although Jake doesn't say much, he speaks by his actions on the field. Jake is a very coachable athlete and has great knowledge of the game. Future teams will miss Jake significantly, and his willingness to do whatever helped the team and his commitment to getting better is second to none. I wish Jake the best of luck in the future and know that if he continues in life with the attitude he has had in football, he will have success no matter what he decides to do.

Jared DeBlois - OL/DL

Jared DeBlois
 
Jared is a perfect example of a team player. When it comes to playing the game of football, overcoming adversity is always important throughout the course of a game and/or season. Jared was a player who always seemed to help his teammates overcome adversity. Jared was always at a disadvantage on the offensive line due to his size. With that said, Jared never complained one time and always seemed to just get the job done. It didn't seem to matter what was going on in the game, Jared always played the game with consistency and didn't need to say a word for others to know what he was thinking. For this reason, Jared is a role model to our younger athletes for his willingness to do whatever it takes to help his team. As a coach it was always nice having an athlete like Jared around because you could count on him to get the job done no matter what. Jared's attitude is second to none and I wish Jared the best of luck in the future.

Pat Driebelbies
 
Pat was a four-year starter for the Hornets and in 2008 joined the 1,000-yard rushing club for the Hornets. In 2007, Pat was named to the 1st team NTL and All-Twin Tiers Team. In 2008, Pat was selected as a player to watch in the NTL and All Twin Tiers. In the 2008 season alone, Pat rushed for 1,009 yards on 170 attempts and averaged 5.9 yards/carry. Pat was tied for second on the team in scoring with 42 points and recorded 49 tackles, 2 caused fumbles, and 1 sack. In 2008 Pat proved to be an outstanding football player and an even better person. Throughout Pat's career he never missed a single practice and always worked hard to become better each week. Throughout Pat's career he became a fine young man. I can remember Pat in ninth grade when he was much smaller and didn't always make the right decisions. As I look back on his four years of football, Pat became a young man that played the game to the best of his ability and always gave it his best. Pat's attitude is second to none and for that reason I believe Pat will experience great success in life. Good luck!

Kyle Eccher - TE/LB

Kyle Eccher
 
When it comes to playing the game of football, attitude is very important. When I think of Kyle Eccher, I think of a guy that has an attitude that is second to none. The 2008 football season was Kyle's first year playing football. In games, during practice, and on the sidelines, Kyle never displayed negative emotion. Kyle was always very positive with other players and was always the first player to encourage younger players. For this reason, Kyle proved to be a valuable asset to our program in 2008. In addition to being very positive, Kyle always showed a great attitude and never gave up. As a coach, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Kyle never gave up throughout this football season and as a result, I believe football had a huge impact on Kyle's life. Hopefully Kyle will never forget the memories of playing high school football and his contributions were greatly appreciated. Good luck!

Cameron Jones - QB/DB

Cameron Jones
 
In 2007, Cameron was named to the 2nd team NTL. In 2008, Cameron was selected as a player to watch in the NTL and All Twin Tiers. Throughout the 2008 season, Cameron passed for over 1,300 yards with 12 touchdowns. Throughout his career, Cameron passed for over 2,700 yards. Besides having outstanding numbers, Cameron is a versatile football player who played many important roles. In addition to being an outstanding football player, Cameron is a great leader. Cameron's attitude is second to none and his ability to lead as a captain of the football team in 2008 was outstanding. As a leader on the field, Cameron played his best during pressure situations and helped lead his team to a 7-4 record in 2008. Cameron's dedication, determination, and willingness to do whatever he has to do to be the best was very obvious in 2008. I could only hope that our younger athletes can mirror Cameron's attitude on and off the field. Cameron is a great athlete, but most importantly, he is a great person. Good luck!

In 2007, Zack was named to the 1st Team NTL. In 2008, Zack was selected as a player to watch in the NTL and All-Twin Tiers. Throughout the 2008 season Zack missed a few games due to eligibility reasons and was faced with adversity by various other circumstances within and beyond his control. It was throughout these times that I witnessed growth as a person and as a football player. I look back to our Canton game during week 8 in which Zack made the play of his career to save Canton from scoring and helping Wellsboro to victory. It is countless times in games and practices in which Zack was always the first person to congratulate his teammates and offer them positive advice. It was during those times that Zack displayed the potential to be an outstanding young man. Zack ended his career as a three-year starter for the Hornets and when Zack was focused and ready to play he was very tough on the field. I wish Zack the best of luck with all his future endeavors.

Steve Mengee - RB/LB

Steve Mengee
 
In 2008, Steve was the second leading scorer on the team and third on the team in tackles. In 2008, Steve accumulated 62 tackles, 2 interceptions, 4 pass breaks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 2 sacks. Offensively, Steve accumulated over 750 all-purpose yards and scored a total of 42 points. Steve proved that with a little bit of attitude and a determination to get better, anything is possible. Steve also has what some players can only dream of having and that is speed. Throughout the course of the past two seasons, Steve has always seemed to make big plays during critical times. On many occasions I would find myself getting upset with Steve about being out of position or not doing what we have coached him to do. But for some reason, Steve was always able to make the play or get to the ball because of his speed and determination to make a play. Besides being an outstanding football player, Steve is also a good person who encourages younger players and is always very positive on the field. His growth as a person is second to none and his contributions to Wellsboro football are greatly appreciated. Good luck with all your future endeavors.

Jason Seeley - OL/DL

Jason Seeley
 
Jason is an athlete who refuses to give up. Throughout the course of the season, Jason was asked to step into games and do the job on the defensive line that wasn't getting done. Many times Jason found himself competing against players that were bigger and faster but I can never remember a time when Jason complained about other players and just did whatever was asked of him throughout the season. For this reason, Jason is a role model for younger athletes as a team player. Jason always chose to do what was best for the team. It is for that reason that Jason is an outstanding individual and I wish him the best in the future. Good luck!

Chris Shelmire - OL/DL

Chris Shelmire
 
Chris is an example of what the coaches refer to as a "role player." In 2007, Chris started 3 games. In 2008, Chris started 9 games and was used at many different positions on the offensive line. In 2008, Chris also recorded 14 tackles, 2 caused fumbles, and 1 sack. At many times throughout the year when the team was facing adversity due to injury or eligibility issues, Chris was able to step in the game and give it his best. In the off-season prior to the 2008 season Chris was one of our most dedicated athletes in the weight room. That hard work helped him to have a taste of success throughout the 2008 season. If Chris can set his goals high and work to attain his goals he will have success in life. Good luck in the future!

Garrett Stager - WR/DB

Garrett Stager
 
In 2008, Garrett had what I consider as a breakout year. Garrett had 21 catches for 490 yards with 5 touchdowns. Garrett's average/catch was 23.3 yards and his ability to run routes was second to none in the NTL. I can remember Garrett returning to our summer practices after taking a year off from football and what a relief it was to know we had a threat at receiver again after losing our receiver to graduation in 2007. The thing I most liked about Garrett was the improvement he showed from week to week throughout the season. Garrett continuously got better and better and in our final home game against North Penn we had the opportunity to put Garrett one-on-one against a North Penn defender and we took advantage of it. Garrett's efforts on the field each and every day were important to the team in 2008 and your contributions to a successful season were greatly appreciated. Good luck!

Corey returned to football in 2008 after not playing during his sophomore and junior seasons. Corey recorded 40 tackles on the year in 2008 and worked very hard throughout the season. I think if you asked Corey today what was one of his biggest regrets, he would tell you not playing football all four years in high school. I know from a coach's perspective it sure would have been nice to have him four years because he did an outstanding job in 2008. I wish we could have had you for a few more years because you have shown signs of greatness within the course of this football season. Good luck!

Matt Weaver - WR/DB

Matt Weaver
 
Matt proves that with hard work and a good attitude anything can be accomplished. Two years ago, Matt set his mind to becoming a better football player and that is what he did. In the off-season, Matt spent many hours in the weight room and worked diligently at becoming a better football player. In 2008, Matt started 10 games at defensive back and played solid football. Besides hard work, Matt also showed a great attitude on and off the field. Many times, Matt was the vocal leader on the sidelines and on the field. Without a doubt, Matt has been one of the most improved players over a four-year period. Matt is a very determined young man and if he can keep this attitude throughout his life he will be very successful at whatever he chooses to pursue. Good luck!

Senior Manager(s)

Caleb Krick

Caleb Krick - 2008 Senior Manager

My job as the head coach would be impossible without the help of Caleb. I can honestly say Caleb will be greatly missed in the years to come within the Wellsboro football family. Caleb's dedication to helping the program is second to none and I can't begin to tell you the hours Caleb put in each football season over the past 4 years. I look back at the hours in the summer alone that Caleb made himself available to handle equipment and prepare for the upcoming season. Before and after each practice Caleb has handled the equipment issues of all the players as well as the coaches. Before each game Caleb has been responsible for loading and unloading all our equipment on and off the bus as well as preparing the stadium field for games. Nevertheless, I could never even remember all the things Caleb has done for this program over the past four years. Caleb is an outstanding young man with a tremendous work ethic. Each year I could depend upon Caleb to get the job done without my saying a single word to him. In my eyes it is people like Caleb who truly make a difference. I only had to get upset with Caleb one time and he will probably never forget this for the rest of his life because I know I won't. Caleb is a fine young man who will be missed greatly by his teammates, friends, trainers, and coaches. Thank you for all that you have done for Wellsboro Football.

My job as the head coach would be impossible without the help of Caleb. I can honestly say Caleb will be greatly missed in the years to come within the Wellsboro football family. Caleb's dedication to helping the program is second to none and I can't begin to tell you the hours Caleb put in each football season over the past 4 years. I look back at the hours in the summer alone that Caleb made himself available to handle equipment and prepare for the upcoming season. Before and after each practice Caleb has handled the equipment issues of all the players as well as the coaches.
