Shorecrest: Spring football capsule

Around the county in 30 days

A daily spring preview of every football program in the county.


Coach: Phil Hayford (178-105, 30th season)

Last season: 6-4

Key losses: LB Zach Hirsch, QB/DB Michael Rightmyer, OL/LB Jay Rosenbluth, WR/DB Logan Sembler, RB Robby Thigpen, OL/DL Matt Van Law, OL/LB Dan Whitecage

Who's back: RB/DB Toms Bernhards, WR/DB Evan Jerome, OL/DL Stephen Mandula, RB/DB Jack Schroeder, RB/LB Harrison Settle, TE/LB Tyler Shenkman, QB/LB Hunter Tremaine

What's new: The Chargers, who used the wing-T for years, switched to a spread offense. But they will still rely on the running game, especially with the return of Tremaine and Schroeder, who each had more than 1,000 yards last year. … Jerome is a two-way starter who led in receptions and interceptions last season. … The defense held Bradenton Christian to 6-of-28 passing and 40 rushing yards in the spring game.

Audible: "The biggest thing I was pleased with was the work the kids put in this spring. I told them if you crack enough eggs, you're going to get an omelette." — Hayford

Did you know?: Dave Field is retiring from coaching after 28 years as an assistant at the school. He will continue to teach at Shorecrest and plans to announce the games.

Spring result: Beat Bradenton Christian 28-0
