Team: Ephrata

Classification: 5A

Head Coach: Kris Miller (0-0)

With 31 consecutive regular-season defeats in their rearview mirror, Ephrata is hopeful new head coach Kris Miller can help the Mountaineers construct a new roadway.

Miller, a former Conestoga Valley High and Lebanon Valley College standout, was the Moutaineers’ defensive coordinator the past three seasons. Last year, Miller’s defense was fourth in the L-L league and recorded a league-high 26 turnovers.

Offensively, Miller will look to improve a unit that generated 132 points last season. He will turn to junior quarterback Brendan Holbritter, who threw for 698 yards and six touchdowns in his first varsity opportunity. Senior Tyler Mentzer is also back after catching 16 passes for 213 yards with four touchdowns.

The Mountaineers will have a roster sprinkled with upperclassmen that will need to mature to bring them back to their winning ways. Ephrata opens the season at Conestoga Valley Sept. 2.
