High school football: Region 6 teams look to unseat champion Prep

MEADVILLE — Cathedral Prep Ramblers

2012 record: 15-0 overall, 5-0 Region 6

Head coach: Mike Mischler (15th season)

Opening week opponent: At Perry, Friday at 7 p.m.

Cathedral Prep is looking to follow up on a 15-0 undefeated season and a Class AAA state championship. Yet, the Ramblers will have to do it without some of their key players from that run. None will be missed as much as quarterback Damion Terry, who was named the state’s Class AAA Player of the Year after passing for an astounding 3,599 yards and 50 touchdowns in 2012 and leading Prep in rushing with 700 yards and 12 TDs. He’s now playing for Michigan State.

Also gone is dual threat Delton Williams, who was second in rushing and tops in receiving last year; first-team receiver Brian Klemensic; three first-team all-region offensive linemen; two first-team defensive linemen; two first-team linebackers; and first-team kicker John Chereson.

What’s left to build around? Well, the Ramblers still have a couple tough runners in DeAngelo Malone and ShaQuon Thrower, as well as a quality set of hands in Alex Greenawalt, Jake DeHart and Charlie Fessler.

Terry’s back-up at QB last year, Billy Fessler, returns. He’s a candidate to take over at QB this season.

McDowell Trojans

2012 record: 7-6 overall, 4-1 Region 6

Head coach: Mark Soboleski (9th season)

Opening week opponent: At Mentor (Ohio), Friday at 7 p.m.

McDowell lost two key offensive weapons last year in current Pitt freshman James Conner (1,680 rush yards, 21 TDs) and Khyre Drayer (857 rush yards, 13 TDs). However, the Trojans still have a couple sharp arrows in the quiver.

Junior quarterback Jake Tarasovich returns after passing for 356 yards and five TDs and rushing for 359 yards and four TDs. The Trojans also have a decent rushing/receiving threat in senior Tyree Spearman; a dead-on kicker in senior Ethan Stark; a first-team offensive lineman in senior Scot Augustine; a second-team wide receiver in senior Jamie Szymczak and a second-team defensive lineman in senior Tanner DeCrapio.
