Weiser, Wyomissing figure to be in Berks race again

Scouts and Spartans return plenty of talent to compete

Weiser, Wyo return enough weapons to be a threat

BERKS COUNTY, Pa. - The Conrad Weiser and Wyomissing football teams have the talent to win their respective leagues within Berks County. But both programs have some holes to fill as the season approaches.

The Scouts (4-3, 9-4 in 2013) lose one of the top offensive players of the year from last season in Aidan Brosious. Versatile playmaker Dexter Jordan is also gone.

But Weiser returns 1,000 yard rusher Alex Guilbe, who will be running behind an experienced offensive line. With a solid defense in place, the biggest question for coach Al Moyer will be deciding which of his three young quarterbacks starts week 1.

Conrad Weiser made it it to the District III-AAA semifinals last season, falling to Bishop McDevitt for the third straight year.

In Wyomissing, the Spartans (4-2, 6-6 in 2013) had to endure somewhat of a rebuilding year last season following its state championship in 2012.

Bob Wolfrum doesn't have to worry about that this year.

Wyo returns most of its talented skill guys, highlighted by Tom Paolini and Scott Kuczala. The Spartans also have an experienced defense, with the only major work needing to be done on both lines.

Wolfrum emphasized how young and inexperience his guys are in the trenches. That will have to change in the coming weeks.

Wyomissing advanced to the District III-AA semifinals last season, losing to Littlestown.
