In just about any other system in section 4 football, Nick Sorrenti would be a 1500 yard, 25 touchdown stud. Or Luis Uceta would, or Justin Jacoby would....you see there's a reason the defending state champion Maine-Endwell Spartans have been soooo good early on.

And the fact that the triple-headed monster in the backfied continues to roll over opponents means they'll likely be good for some time.
Each has a style unique to his own game: Sorrenti the dumptruck bruiser, Uceta the snake sneaking through cracks and Jacoby a speedy between the tackles runner.
And they're fine sacrificing personal numbers as long as the number in the win column keeps increasing.

" If they understand that it works because of all of them I think that we can do some pretty good things. I think it showed last year, but even more this year when they're starting to realize that it doesn't matter who gets it as long as it gets done."

" Well the lineman make sure that the running backs, whenever they do get an opportunity they go as hard as they can. Every time the running backs get the ball they make sure. OK I'm not going to get it 15 times in a game, so I should take the opportunity that I have right now and that's why you see us breaking off some longer runs this year because I think we're running harder."

ME is back home Saturday afternoon, this week hosting Owego, their first division game of the season.
Kickoff there is set for 1:30
