Apparently part of the strategy in toughening up the defense is the move of Mark Trapasso from Special Teams coach to Defensive Coach. Trapasso's known for setting high standards for the hard-working, successful Burgher wrestling team.
Leonbruno said they'd be rebuilding the team's defense around the Burgher linebackers: Jeremy Barber, Calvin Duell, Zack Baer, Hunter Werner, Nolan Maltbie and Charlie Giknis. Baer, Barber, and Giknis are experienced wrestlers, the coach said, noting his confidence in them.
"This is the best attitude team since I've been here," said three-year coach Leonbruno, who is a star player for the semi-pro Glens Falls Greenjackets, and is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the NAFL.
