Summary

For the second straight year, the Black Knights' season ended in a heartbreaking overtime loss in the playoffs. Their 2014 season ended with a 41-40 loss to Central Dauphin East in triple overtime in the second round of the District 3 Class AAAA playoffs.  

With a year to get over the loss, Hempfield will now look to make more noise in 2015. But to do so, the Knights need some inexperienced players to step up.

 

The Black Knights should be excited about 6-foot-3 sophomore receiver David Martin after he showed flashes in his freshman year, including a crucial touchdown catch in Hempfield's win against Manheim Central.

Also returning is senior quarterback Sam Kramer who threw for over 1200 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. 

“I definitely feel a lot more comfortable with the offense this year. I’m playing with a lot of guys I played with last year and I’m looking forward to building on that chemistry this year,” Kramer said.

One of Kramer's favorite targets will also be back in senior Will Blair who will also see time in the backfield in 2015.

“We are going to have a really competitive year,” senior receiver Will Blair said. “We have a lot of senior leadership that also has experience.”

Blair caught 33 balls for 524 yards and three touchdowns in 2014. 

A bright spot on the defensive side of the ball is senior end Nate Trimble, who took a big step forward in his junior year and has put on significant muscle heading into his senior campaign.

“I can’t let my teammates see me slow down at all this year,” Trimble said. “Whether it’s at practice, in the game or in the weight room, I have to going 100 percent all the time.”

Hempfield will be tested right off the bat when it hosts Lampeter-Strasburg on opening weekend.
