Corner Kick: Fort LeBoeuf

Fort LeBoeuf Bisons
Boys
Coach (season, record): Jason Falk (5th season, 29-40-4)
2010 overall record: 7-10-1
2010 region record (place): 7-5-0 (fourth)
2010 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 playoffs
Top players lost: Alex Morelli, John Englert, Aaron Troyer, Zach Troyer, Charles Sparks, Cody Stone
Top returning players: Kevin Gardner, Tyler Black, Kris Musser, A.J. Rathburn, Dan Scutella, Pat Szastak, Steve Port
Assistant coach: Ian Burrows
Outlook: Fort LeBoeuf barely missed the District 10 playoffs last fall and the Bisons will need some of their younger players to step up this year to break into the postseason. LeBoeuf lost six key seniors to graduation but has a solid group back. Kevin Gardner, Tyler Black, Kris Musser, A.J. Rathburn, Dan Scutella, Pat Szastak and Steve Port could all be impact players this season but coach Jason Falk’s focus is to improve the Bisons’ offense. LeBoeuf only need a few things to come together and the Bisons could be competitive with every team in the region.

Assistant coach: Maria Dembrow
Outlook: Fort LeBoeuf was competitive with most teams on its schedule last fall with five ties and five wins. The Bisons look to a new coach in Karl Falk this season and a shift of focus to play defense with discipline and smart, creative offense. The Bisons lost two important players in Lindsey Black and Danielle Gray but they have plenty of impact players back. Brianna Kenney, Katie Lloyd, Kamryn Troyer, Sami Pace, Mckenzie Helsley, Nikki Cole and Jessica Inks bring plenty of experience back for LeBoeuf and could lead the Bisons to a winning record.
