Season Preview: Daniel Boone

Coach: Matt Kade, 3rd season
Last year’s record/accomplishments: 7-3 Berks I, 11-6-1 overall; Berks and District 3 playoff qualifier

Outlook: An attacking flair carried the Blazers to a strong 2014 highlighted by a win over District 3-AAA champion Reading and a berth in districts. Some valuable personnel graduated, namely All-Area first teamers Jason Burns and Jaxson Burns, but the identity remains the same. “We have very dynamic attackers that are going to create a lot of pressure on opposing teams. Our fitness and team speed will also generate a lot of counter-attacks against our opponents,” Kade said. Led by their three captains – forward Brenden Valverde and defensive duo Zach Wagner and Andrew Baer – the Blazers plan to bring the game to the opposition while gunning for a deeper run in the Berks and District 3 playoffs.
