FAIRVIEW VILLAGE — After a first three games rife with physical mistakes, mental errors, missed assignments and general disorder, the Methacton Warriors took it upon themselves to change the culture, so to speak, this week.
According to Warriors coach Paul Lepre, captains Brandon Bossard, Cooper Given, Jeremy Reid and Chris He provided the impetus for some overtime skull sessions after practice had ended.
“They stayed out later after practice was over, working on things that we talked about on film that we were struggling with,” Lepre said. “We must have had 30 or 40 guys hanging out later to work on those things, and that’s a credit to them. They made a statement to one another that, ‘Hey, we need this extra time if we want to get on the W side.’”
Saturday afternoon, the fruits of that labor paid dividends as Methacton defeated Pope John Paul II, 35-13, in Pioneer Athletic Conference action for its first victory of the season.
