N-W football looks to turn around with new coach, field

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — The Falcons will show a plethora of looks on offense, Tylec said.

“I adapt to what we have,” he said. “We’ve changed the offense around to fit our players. We won’t be a smashmouth team, but we’ll find a way to move the ball between the tackles.”

Size is less of an issue on defense, where coordinator Sam Pericelli boasts a pair of 300-pound defensive tackles in Bobby Roth and Hawk Robinson. Peletier and hard-hitting senior Caleb Kish will man the ends.

“Caleb is a guy who doesn’t smile much,” Tylec said. “He’s one of our most physical kids, and hopefully he’ll make some quarterbacks pay this year.”

Tylec said the leader of the defense will be senior middle linebacker Jason Vranic, a fixture in Niagara-Wheatfield football through the area’s youth leagues. Mixon will anchor the defensive backs, starting at free safety.
