Wolfpack Ready to Attack

CSP Wolfpack


Class D

2016 Record 5-4

The Wolfpack won five of their last six games played in 2016 and took home the Class D Funke Bowl. The big win came over Randolph (41-6) in Week 5 but the Cardinals repaid CSP with a playoff loss they won’t soon forget.

Heading into 2017 the Wolfpack believe they have what it takes to not only win a playoff game but to also play at New Era Field. “We had great participation in our offseason program” Head Coach Ty Harper said. Harper enters his 3rd season at the helm after previously serving as the offensive coordinator for Sherman. In 2015 three schools combined into one powerhouse (Clymer, Sherman, Panama).  He is a social studies teacher at Sherman High School.

The Wolfpack will have to overcome the loss of some pretty special seniors including QB Nolan Eggleston who threw for over 800 yards last year. CSP graduated seven starters on offense and six on defense. “Our JV’s went 7-0 last year and we are bringing up a lot of really talented kids. But we are lacking Varsity game experience.”

Stepping in under center will be Sophomore Gerrit Hinsdale who attended Trent Dilfer’s QB Camp down in Georgia earlier this year. “Gerrit throws a nice ball and is just a great student of the game” Harper said. “He’s a leader as well, his teammates voted on him as one of our captains so that should say a lot about him as well.”

Harper will be counting on Sr’s Thomas Delahoy, Tanner Ramsey and Jared Gleason for leadership as well. Delahoy (6’2, 275 lbs.) is one of the top lineman in WNY and will be the anchor for CSP. Ramsey led the Wolfpack in rushing last year and is also a defensive hawk, leading the team in forced fumbles. Ramsey made Class D Honorable Mentions. Gleason is a three-year Varsity player who averaged 28-yards per catch in 2016.

Besides Ramsey, Jr Derek Ecklund will see some carries out of the backfield as well. CSP could have a nice 1-2 punch behind Hinsdale.

The defense is coached by Chris Payne who was the Panama head coach for 20 years.

Most Class D observers are expecting CSP to be more competitive in 2017. They aren’t yet in the same class as Maple Grove in terms of depth but the way the Wolfpack finished out the season should give them the confidence to go out and play with them and be competitive. That’s a given.

CSP will open up this year at home against Class C South Cassadaga Valley –  Falconer (CVF). It’ll be a good test for this young group that will look to continue riding last season’s momentum. A good showing against CVF could set the tone for 2017. They’ll face Cattaraugus/Little Valley in Week 2 before the rematch with the Randolph.

Maple Grove will play CSP in Week 5 at Clymer. That’s when we’ll see how far the Wolfpack has come.
