Huron looking for more success after last year's strong finish PHOTOS

For Huron, the 2013 football season ended on a high note and the team finished as one of the best in school history.

The Chiefs won their last four games of the year and were only the eighth Huron squad to ever finish with a winning record (5-4), according to Michigan-Football.com

With several returning players, the Huron squad will hope to carry some of that momentum into the 2014 campaign.

“We’re starting to come together,” said Huron Coach Dan Kalbfleisch. “We’ve got a lot of work to do yet, but we’re getting there. We’re young in certain places, but we’re experienced up front (on the offensive line).”

At quarterback will be junior Matt Hartwick (5-foot-10, 175 pounds) who split time last year with 2014 grad Eli Scott and is always a major threat to run the ball. In 2013 he was second on the team with 650 rushing yards and he ran in six scores. With his arm, he threw for 251 yards and four touchdowns.

Returning to the tailback position will be senior Ian Robinson (5-5, 158), who piled up a team-high 779 rushing yards last year, ran in 11 touchdowns and had 191 receiving yards.

Senior Logan Ritchie (6-0, 180) will step in as an h-back in Kalbfleisch’s offense. Ritchie caught two touchdowns last year and this past winter won a wrestling state championship.

Devin Collins (5-11, 160), who is a senior, will line up at wide receiver, following a season in which he had 238 receiving yards and two touchdown catches.

At tight end for the Chiefs this year will be senior Jamison Cobb (5-11, 200).

Scheduled to start on the offensive line are: junior Dale Midkiff (6-4, 275) and senior Dustin Vukas (6-3, 240) at the tackle spots, junior Jakob Davis (6-0, 225) and senior Jon Krug (5-9, 225) at the guard spots and senior Chase Mckay (6-2, 260) at center.

Mckay and Krug will also be on the other side of the ball, lining up as defensive tackles, while Davis, Vukas and senior Justin Carey will be defensive ends.

Playing linebacker for the Chiefs will be Ritchie, junior Steele White (5-10, 185) and Zack Williams (5-9, 165).

Set to play corner this year are senior Jon Wellman and Collins and at safety will be Jacob Fryer (5-10, 195) and Jake Galazka (6-1, 205). Collins had two interceptions last year and Wellman picked off a pass, as well.

Kicking again this year will be senior Marco Marchionda (5-9, 180) who was 20-for-24 on extra point tries last year and senior Miles Molnar (5-11, 205) will likely be the Huron punter this fall.

The Chiefs will kick off the 2014 season with a home game against Huron on Aug. 29 and will open the Huron League season the following week by welcoming in Grosse Ile.
