Team #6 New Castle (7)Written by: David Mika on Sunday, August 29th, 2010
The Red Hurricanes could be a year away from cooking up something pretty special out in Lawrence County. Junior field general John Matarazzo (2,134 yards, 17 TD; 39 rush, 4 TD) returns, and is on pace to throw for more than 6,300 yards. RB Justin Fleo (78 rush, 732 yards, 9.39 yds./rush, 34 rec., 530 yds., 10 total TD), WRs Marcus Carter (23 rec., 472 yds., 3 TD) and Darrien Rice (20 rec., 394 yds., 5 TD) return, as do several linemen both on the offensive and defensive fronts. New Castle finished 8-3 last season and averaged 28.4 points per game. The season before, the Hurricanes went 8-4, averaged 35 points per game and reached the WPIAL AAA semifinals, falling to Thomas Jefferson, 47-20. New Castle last won a WPIAL football championship (its 10th in school history) in 1998.
