Starpoint RB Majewski looks to keep rolling in senior season

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — He made a point to say he didn’t shy away from contact, though.

“I like to pop it outside when I can, but I don’t mind the contact,” he said.

“He’d like to shift you and run by you, but he certainly won’t avoid running over you,” Cavagnaro added.

The Spartans are more excited for the benefit Majewski has on younger players. For the second straight season, Cavagnaro named him one of three team captains, a role he said Majewski has grown into.

“He kind of took over halfway through last year, which is when it really became his team,” Cavagnaro said. “He’s led us since.

“He’s been there and done it. He’s a leader in the weight room, and on the field he sees everything. He’ll call out blitzes for the offensive linemen and the quarterback.”

If early signs are any indication, Majewski his due for a big year. He carried the ball 35 times in last weekend’s rain-soaked 7-0 loss to Lockport and said he’s excited to open Class A North play Saturday at Kenmore East (1 p.m.).

“He’s done the right things to get where he is,” Cavagnaro said. “He’ll be rewarded for it — hopefully Saturday.”
