Danville @ Shikellamy 10/19/12

 

The Danville Ironmen Defense was in full force Friday night as they kept the Shikellamy Braves from getting any points on the board. On the side of the offense Danville's quarterback Weston Baylor threw for two touchdowns and Sam Dressler had one rushing touchdown. Their final points of the game came with a 30-yard field goal by kicker Shayne Riley...ending the game with the Ironmen up 24-0. The Ironmen continue on to an impressive 7-1 record for the season. Next week they face Bloomsburg in the WHLM High School Game of the Week.



Danville’s unconventional play calling on special teams gave them an early lead that they never relinquished to a sputtering Montoursville team. Senior Cale Rice recovered the onside kick to start the game, and just a few plays later Running Back Sam Dressler punched in the touchdown on the ground. Both Sam Dressler and Isaiah Crolle both rushed for over 100 yards on their way to the win. Danville finished the game 21-7 over Montoursville and move on next week to face Shikellamy at Shikellamy.



The Ironmen coming off their first loss last week to Central Columbia, rebounded in a big way, defeating Jersey Shore 42-14. Danville’s rushing attack dominated the clock and the scoreboard, with Sam Dressler and Isaiah Croll combining for over 250 yards and 3 scores on the ground. Danville dominated on both sides of the ball, getting them back on the winning track. The 5-1 Ironmen get ready to face Montoursville at home this week.



Danville finally notched their first loss facing a tough Central Columbia team to move to 4-1 on the season. While completing one touchdown through the air, Weston Baylor also put the football on the ground, finishing the game with Danville’s only score. The Ironmen had trouble stopping the Central offense from getting into the endzone, dropping this week’s Game of the Week 7-21. Danville hosts Jersey Shore this week.



Danville scored their fourth consecutive win this weekend over a Mifflinburg squad that beat them last season. Weston Baylor threw for two touchdown passes as Danville won handily, 23-13. The Ironmen again looked impressive as they continue their undefeated run. Danville's defense led by Linebacker Eric Haney, was a big part of the victory, contributing points and field position via an early safety. Danville goes on to face undefeated Central Columbia.



Danville @ Shamokin Friday September 14, 2012

 

Danville Quarterback Weston Baylor threw for 110 yards to take his team to a 20-10 victory against Shamokin Friday night. The quarterback threw for a touchdown to Cale Rice right before half time to make it at 10-7 game. A third quarter rushing touchdown plus two field goals during the game lead the team to their third victory this season. Danville looks ahead to their game at home with Mifflinburg this Friday night.



Danville survived what looked to be a close matchup with Loyalsock this week, beating the team 20-6. Cale Rice stepped up big on defense with four interceptions on the night, including three in the first quarter alone. Danville was unable to produce points off those turnovers early on, but used good special teams, including a 41 yard field goal by sophomore Shayne Riley to put pressure on a lackluster Loyalsock squad. Fullback Sam Dressler grinded down the defense for 121 yards on 21 carries, including a 13 yard touchdown run. Danville is now looking ahead to their next opponent, Shamokin, for their second consecutive away game.



Danville vs Milton, Friday August 31st

 

For anybody wondering about life in the Danville football program after Andrew Andreychik, new quarterback Weston Baylor put together a resounding Week 1 answer.

The junior signal caller threw for 156 yards and two touchdowns and completed 10 of his 13 passes in Danville’s 35-8 victory over Milton Friday night. Baylor, who also ran for a score, received support from a running game which accounted for 232 yards and three touchdowns.

The win was the fifth consecutive triumph for the Ironmen over the Black Panthers. In each of those five wins, Danville has scored at least 35 points.

Including Milton, each of Danville’s first three opponents finished 2011 with a losing record, although Milton played for the District IV AAA championship and Shamokin won that title and won a game in the state playoffs as well.

 



Three straight years, the Danville football team has qualified for the district playoffs.

 

If they’re to make it a fourth, it’ll be with a new quarterback spreading the ball amongst a familiar cast of characters.

 

Junior Weston Baylor takes over at the quarterback position after serving as two-year understudy to three-year starter Andrew Andreychik. Fourth-year head coach Jim Keiser said Baylor is progressing well.

 

“He’s done an outstanding job,” Keiser said. “He’s started to grasp things. We’re working on timing in the passing game right now.”

 

Baylor will not lack for game-tested weapons. In the backfield, juniors Sam Dressler and Isaiah Croll will look to build on their sophomore seasons. Dressler, the fullback, rushed for 1,131 yards and 10 touchdowns while Croll, the halfback, ran for 481 yards and six scores. Senior Cale Rice will line up at wingback. Depth in the backfield will be provided by juniors Isaac Troutman, Charles Rivera and Caleb Jones as well as sophomore Tom Brouse.

 

Experience can be found on the perimeter also with junior wide receiver Zack Kozick. The 6’0” target was second on the team in 2011 with 22 receptions. Jones and senior Matt McConnell may also see time.

 

At tight end, senior Bret Berg will aim to build on a 146-yard, two-touchdown performance in last year’s district quarterfinal at Towanda. Berg will be backed up by sophomore Gabe Shope.

 

Senior co-captain Mason Fausnaught will anchor the offensive line from his left tackle position. Left guard is a competition between sophomore Gunnar Feldmann and junior Ian Ficca. Junior Matt Shipe will start at center and has earned praise from Keiser for his preseason work. Junior Chris Humbert returns at right guard and senior Blake Remensnyder will man the right tackle spot. Junior Marcus Wilt and sophomore Jacob Sheridan will also compete for playing time.

 

Many of the names operating on the offensive line are the same names working on the defensive line in Danville’s 3-5 look. Ficca and Sheridan are penciled in as the starting defensive tackles. They’ll be bracketing Wilt, who will work as the nose tackle. Fausnaught, Remensnyder and Shipe will rotate in as well.

 

Keiser said he feels set at middle linebacker, where junior Eric Haney, a first-team all-conference pick last season, returns. Brouse will be another starting inside linebacker with Croll and Troutman both having the potential to play inside or outside. The fifth linebacker spot will be handled by a combination of Feldman, Shope and junior Caleb Klein.

 

In the secondary, Rice and Kozick will be the starting cornerbacks. Berg is a returning starter at the safety position. McConnell, sophomore Evan Tanner and freshman Matthew Schiffino will provide cornerback depth and Rivera will be the second string safety.

 

Sophomore Shayne Riley will handle the kicking duties. Riley and Berg are battling to see who will become the punter. Berg will continue as the team’s primary punt returner. Rice is back as kick returner and will be joined back deep by Jones.

 

Berg and Rice are part of a senior group that has taken its cue largely from the 2010 squad which went 12-1 and advanced to the district championship game.

 

“The 2010 team had a big influence on them and the senior group last year,” Keiser said. “They want to make their own mark.”

 

Keiser said one way for this group of seniors to make that mark would be to continue that run of postseason appearances.

 

“They know that the goal is to always make the district playoffs,” Keiser said. “They know the fact this would be the first time Danville has been to district playoffs four straight years. They don’t want to break that chain.”

 

If Danville is able to once again qualify for the postseason, then Keiser believes it’s an opportunity for the program to take another step forward.

 

“For us to get in there and to make some noise in the district playoffs, that would be a great stepping stone for this team,” Keiser said.

 

Danville’s 2012 regular season journey begins at 7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 31 at home versus Milton.
