One of those players is C Stefan Tighe (6-2.5, 275, 5.1). Stefan anchors the offensive line. He is very quick, a trait likely developed by being a highly successful wrestler. This year, Tighe placed 6th in the state Class AAA at 275 lbs. He captured the District 10 crown and the North West Regional Championship, while compiling a 36-10 record.
Stefan has stayed under the radar thus far. He's heard from Notre Dame, Akron, and Syracuse. He was invited to Notre Dame's junior day but was unable to attend. His current list of favorites includes Notre Dame, Michigan, West Virginia, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Akron. During the 2003 season, Tighe earned 2nd Team All-Metro honors.
Who is the toughest kid you had to wrestle?
"Zach Shaffer from Cumberland Valley," said Tighe.
What would you say would be your strengths on the field?
"I have real good technique. I'm knowledgeable and smart. I think I do well with making the calls on the offensive line."
What do you need to improve on?
"My pass blocking."
What are your goals for 2004?
"To make it to states, make a name for myself and have a good season."
"I want to catch someone's eye and there will be scouts here watching Carson, Mathis, and Blanks. If I do well, they'll notice me."
