With the roster size Cumberland Valley brings in, most players have to wait until their senior season to see the field. Tyler Heisey was an exception last year. With varsity experience under his belt, Heisey will be a leader for the CV team on both the offensive and defensive sides as the Eagles try to get back to the District 3 postseason.
Q: What was the offseason like with the transition this program was going through?
A: Our strength program is pretty mandatory so the kids are there four days a week. That allows us to be together a lot which helps us to grow bonding wise, but also as a team on the field and improve our game.
Q: With more guys coming back with experience than normal at CV, how will that help you moving forward?
A: Playing in the Mid-Penn Conference, it’s a week in and week out battle. Having kids get used to the speed at the varsity level last year, that can really help us out. Now, we can come in and be strong right from the start and be ready to go.
Q: What’s it like playing in a division like the Commonwealth?
A: It’s tough. Every team’s strong. Every week, you’ve got to be on the top of your game, stay focused and ready to go. That’s why all the hard work we put out during the week at practice is important.
