Dubois bye-week interviews

Written by: on Sunday, October 7th, 2012

Players and Coaches Comment about Season’s Progress

 

DuBois has definitely earned a bye-week after four out of five blowout games. After the latest win of 84-6 over Bradford, head coach Frank Varischetti and a few key players of DuBois’ offensive powerhouse commented about this season’s progress.

Senior RB Garrett Brown said, “The season is going good so far. If the team keeps this style of play alive, hopefully we can go undefeated. We have some tough games coming up vs. Brookville, Warren, Meadville and Slippery Rock. Hopefully, we can pull out wins in those games. If we make post-season and win the first playoff game, it will be the team’s first playoff win in a long time.”

“Our offensive linemen have helped out a lot with the high scoring. They make holes for me and the big thing is I don’t want to hit the ground. IT HURTS!”

“Being a senior this year, I will miss the sport when I leave. I’ll miss the underclassmen. I hope to play in college someday. When I’m gone, I hope to see young talent take my place and have them perform to the best of their ability. Sophomore Bryson Paulinellie is a kid that will be a big contender in the coming years. He has great potential.”

Coach Varischetti was able to comment, “The season is going good so far. The offense and defense are doing great. Amazingly, the team leads the state in points scored.”

After much local pro and con discussion about the lopsided 84-6 win over Bradford, Varischetti said, “The reason I think we are doing so well is that we are winning the turnover battle. The team is also balanced pass-to-run yardage-wise, which is great!”

“The first string only played in the first half of that game, which is huge. The team returned two interceptions for touchdowns and a kickoff for a touchdown also.”

“The post season is getting closer and closer everyday. The last half of our schedule is pretty tough. We play Slippery Rock for our last home game and they, so far, are undefeated. Warren, who we play in week eight, is also undefeated, so far. The end of the season is going to get interesting!”

“The really important thing is to finish out the regular season strong and worry about the post-season when we get there. Take one game at a time.”

Junior kicker Josh Hnat said, “I think the season is going pretty good. The team leads the state in points scored. In my opinion we are doing great, but there is always, always, always that little area for improvement. If we find that area, BOOM, we’re golden!”

“The pressures of kicking aren’t that great. Yeah, with everyone looking at me, it is a little intimidating at times. I just kick the ball. The whole system is powered by adrenaline. My longest field goal this season, so far, was 43 yards.”

“If I could play any other position I would have to pick wide receiver, strong safety or most of all, kicker. I’ll play anywhere the coach tells me to.”

Senior WR Garrett Miles commented, “The season is going great! I have no complaints. I think the reason why we are doing so well is we play with a mind set of “GO HARD OR GO HOME!” Plus, we’re just that AWESOME!”

“When I leave DAHS, I’ll cry, for sure! These last few years, I’ve been blessed and privileged to play this sport. I hope to play in college if I have the chance, but it’s not my number one priority.”

Sophomore QB Gabe French noted, “The season is going great and every week the team keeps improving. Hopefully we can get some playoff wins when we get there.”

“The offensive line has contributed greatly to the high scoring cause. They make holes for Garrett Brown and he goes from there. The line also gives me the most amount of time possible to throw to open receivers.”

“Being a sophomore and starting as quarterback on the varsity squad comes with high standards. I have Sean Sleigh’s shoes to fill. Every week I keep working harder and harder and that has allowed me to perform at this high level.”

Junior OL/DL Tyler Fleeger commented, “The season is going great! The team has good chemistry and they cooperate well with each other.”

“Playing both offensive and defensive lines is tough, but the offensive line has contributed greatly to the team’s big numbers. We make holes for Brownie (Garrett Brown) and he uses them with great effectiveness.”

“I really hope to play in college. I’m getting letters almost everyday from different colleges and universities wanting me to play for them. I know I’ll have to work hard for a starting position but I can see myself playing NCAA Division-1 football in years to come.”

Next week DuBois will FINALLY get to wear their black home jerseys for the first time this season against neighboring Brookville.

FYI: Homecoming is October 12th for DuBois.
