Wyatt Covert - RB/LB

Wyatt Covert
 
Wyatt is one of the hardest working kids I have ever had the privilege to coach. Wyatt would do whatever was asked of him and always put the team before himself. Wyatt has been a 3 year starter on defense as a linebacker and a 2 year starter on offense as fullback. Wyatt was named a captain of the football team as a senior. Wyatt always led by his action and not his words. Wyatt has always been under sized for the positions he played on the football field, but would never let anybody out work him. Wyatt has been the staple of the area’s best defense the last two seasons. Wyatt has led the team in tackles both his junior and senior seasons. Offensively Wyatt was a punishing runner never going down on the first hit and always striving for extra yardage. Wyatt was also a great lead blocker as he helped Jermain Brooks reach 1,000 rushing yards. You don't find kids with the work ethic and desire to make themselves and the team better every day. Wyatt was a special player that has set the bar very high. Wyatt has earned 1st team NTL honors at outside linebacker and honorable mention at full back.

Blake has been a two year starter on the offensive line since joining the team as a sophomore. Before his sophomore season he had never played football before, but picked up the game very quickly.

Blake is a very coachable young man that has worked extremely hard in the weight room and has become one of the best offensive tackles in the NTL.

Nate Logan - WR/DB

Nate Logan
 
Nate has the heart of a giant and is a kid that bleeds Wellsboro Football. I have had the privilege of working with Nate the last 4 years. Nate has battled through injuries to always come back and end up on top. Nate's heart is twice as big as his physical presence. There have been many occasions in his career where it would have been very easy to give up, but he continued to battle through adversity and has never given up. Nate has been a staple in the weight room and was always willing to do whatever was asked of him to make the football team better. During his career he has played wide receiver, defensive back, and special teams. Often times out sized by opponents he would never shy away from going and making a play. Nate is a testament to what hard work and dedication can obtain. Nate's dedication is what all present and future Wellsboro Football players should strive to achieve.

Dylan Prough - WR/DL

Dylan Prough
 
Dylan returned to football this year after not playing since his middle school days. Dylan made major impacts on both sides of the ball. Offensively, Dylan was the second leading receiver on the team and a big target for Michael to throw to. Defensively Dylan was an end and a nightmare for opposing offensive linemen to block. Dylan has natural athletic abilities to go up and get the football and make something happen after the catch. Multiple times Dylan would turn a 10 yard reception into a much bigger play or even a touchdown. Dylan's athleticism allowed us to have him drop into pass coverage from a defensive end position or go and swallow up opposing quarterbacks. Dylan has earned 1st team NTL wide receiver and 2nd team defensive end.
