Wellsville Tigers (4-6 Overall) (3-3 EOAC - 4th Place)

The Tigers Enjoy a Record-Setting Season

The Wellsville Tigers may not have finished above .500 for the year, but they certainly experienced some special moments in the 2020 season. The Tigers passing game was the second best in the EOAC behind league-leading United. With that, Tigers senior quarterback Troy Carter made it a memorable and a record-setting season.

"I was proud of the staff and the players for handling all the distractions of covid," Tigers coach Robert Ramsey remarked. "Our offense was explosive in the passing game with Troy spreading the ball around very well, and we also ran the ball well at times. Troy stood out throwing for 1,749 yards and setting the all-time passing yards for Wellsville with 4,227 yards total."

Carter utilizing several different targets in the record breaking season especially the trio of Isaiah Greathouse with 43 receptions and 569 yards receiving, Valen Krzyston's 35 catches for 547 yards, and Garrett Krzyston's 32 receptions for 534 yards providing nightmares for opposing defensive coordinators. Add in some effective running by Greathouse and Gavin Kountz and the Tigers were able to rack up some impressive offensive numbers on the season.

"Isaiah Greathouse played extremely well on both sides of the ball. Valen and Garrett Krzyston both played well on both sides as well. Tyler Stanley and JJ Cline played well on the defensive side of the ball and took on a lot of double teams all year long. Gavin Kountz was our short yardage guy and played well on defense. Isaiah Ice and Kolby Ramsey played well on the offensive line for us," Coach Ramsey said.

For their outstanding season, Carter, Greathouse and Garrett Krzyston were all named to the first team All-EOAC honors. Valen Krzyston, Stanley and Kuntz all made the second team while Caden Weekly was named honorable mention.

The future for the Tigers is definitely very bright as they head into this off-season. Although Carter, Weekly, and kicker Casey Lemaster will be graduating in the spring, basically the remainder of the team returns in 2021. A year of experience and growth should make the Tigers a team to contend with next year.

"Covid affected the whole season with us having to excuse the players from practice due to making us safe for the season. The hands-off practicing made it difficult to prepare for game situations. We were very thankful to be able to play the game of football for our student athletes," Ramsey stated.
