“We want to build off of the success of last year, which was the best season in school history. We will be younger than last year, but our success will be dictated by the leadership of our upperclassmen and the younger guys who have to step in and play.
The Saints return the best football player to ever wear the uniform at St. Martin’s High School in three-year starter RB Harlem Berry (5-11, 185) who is the fastest on the field by far. This kid is special and I met him in person a year ago as a guest on our podcast (The Sports Scouting Report) and I was impressed with his maturity at a young age. In 2022, Berry ran for 1,494 yards, with 186.8 yards per game and 29 touchdowns. Berry is currently the No.1 running back in the country by almost every single recruiting service in the country.
The QB for the program is a new starter Ashton Oliver (5-8, 150, 4.5 speed) who is a great athlete in his own right. Berry is not the only player who can make plays for the program, you also have WR Cooper Helmke (6-2, 165), RB Tyler Penny (5-7, 135) and WR/DB Kain Oddo a returning starter on Offense. The key linemen for the team are four-year starter OL/DL Dominic Hogan (5-10, 210), second-year starter OL/DL Zack Kelly (6-0, 270) and OC/DT Dylan Raines (6-0, 225) has played in the program four years overall.TE Daken Baker (6-2, 200) is a good blocker and good pass-catcher for the team as well.
On special teams, starting at Kicker is starting WR Cooper Helmke and does a really good job.
Coach Dizer spent 4 years at Riverside High School where he did a great job with that program.
