Defensive Backs


The Dawgs lost 3 of their starting defensive backs last season and Curry has some big shoes to fill. But, with young talented players coming up there will be no problems the next few years.

Pete Celona (5’9” 160) is a one year returning starter at cornerback who led the team with 4 interceptions last season, including 2 returned for touchdowns to win the District 2 Championship against Honesdale. Celona also had 81 tackles, 5 for a loss, and 3 fumble recoveries. Kolby Klinger (5’11” 175) will also start at cornerback in his junior season. He has very good defensive back skills, with good feet work and great presence on the field he could led the team in interceptions this year. Also going for a spot at cornerback is Tim Bogart. Bogart (5’11” 165) is returning from a mid-season injury last year in which he dislocated his shoulder. Last season he had 26 tackles and could be a starter. Sophomores Gordon Law (6’ 175) and Phil Dellegrotti (6’ 160) will be starting in the safety positions. Law has worked hard and looked very good over the summer. With his great speed he won’t be ousted by receivers. Dellegrotti is coming off a year in which he started 2 games as a freshman and racked up 16 tackles. As a veteran sophomore he has no problem stepping up. Mike Walton and Dalen Broussard may also be seeing a lot of playing time in the defensive back positions.

Even with young players this year the defensive backs will be ready and able. They will be tested against great passing games, including Bishop McDevitt division 1 QB Jeremy Ricker, WR Aaron Berry and Williamsport WR Shammar Coates who had 190 receving yards last season against Berwick.
