Williamsport, PA - After two inches of rain yesterday, the 2019 edition of Warrior football started their 2019 preseason workouts. On the field first at around 2:15pm was first year players. Offensive lineman, defensive lineman, running backs, receivers and defensive secondary players broke up into small groups for fundamental training skills. A little later, last year's players joined the group on the turf at David Person Field.


There is plenty of instructions being given during the afternoon practice.

Preseason daily activities keep players busy from sunrise to sunset. After wakeup call at 6:45am the players eat breakfast and then go to classroom meetings. At 8:45am the offense and defense rotate between the weight room and the recreation center. In the weight room, players do bench tests. In the recreation center, the players learn plays doing walkthroughs. Learning offensive and defensive plays and skeems is a big challenge before the first full scrimmage on August 29th at Franklin and Marshall. Also, from 11am to noon, the first year players go through impact testing.

The defense is listening to the coaching staff.

By now, these guys are very hungry. After lunch, the squad heads to David Person Field for taping and dressing up for walkthrough training, specialist training and practice with helmets and shorts. Dinner comes around 6:00 pm then  the group breaks up into special team meetings, team time, Lycoming trivia and unit/position meetings. Finally, to the dormroom for lights out at 11:00pm.

Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Steve Wiser  starts his 50th year on the Lycoming Football turf. This is his 46th year as a coach and four as a player.

As you can see, a very busy schedule, but there is a lot to learn before the away game against the Susquehanna River Hawks on September 7th and the MAC season opener against the Widener Pride on September 14th at home.
