CollegeBaseVarsity Kickoff Countdown is a daily series on the Varsity blog. It’s 3 days until the start of the high school football season this Friday:

Number of the day: 3

That’s the number of Oil City players who occupy the top of District 10’s list for receiving yards in a career.

The Oilers were the first program in northwestern Pennsylvania to fully commit to and embrace the concept of the spread offense in the late 2000s. It’s why 2011 graduate Mark Kulinski is one of only two D-10 quarterbacks to pass for more than 6,000 career yards and have Ben Koyack, Logan Lantz and Logan Way rank as its most prolific receivers.

Koyack, now a senior tight end for the University of Notre Dame, caught 152 passes for 2,591 yards between 2007-10 for Oil City. Lantz, over that same span, finished with 146 receptions for 2,326 yards.

Way was third overall when his high school career ended after last season. He totaled 144 catches for 2,313 yards.
