BVT Football Seniors Come Together
The Blackstone Valley Tech football team will have some big shoes to fill in 2014. The current class of seniors came into BVT and went undefeated as freshmen before helping the Beavers' varsity team to three straight postseason appearances and a Super Bowl title in 2012.
"It's been pretty fun," said senior quarterback and linebacker Nic Wojnar. "Last year we really came together as a varsity team and the last two years have been pretty amazing. I never thought we'd been as successful as we were."
"Our seniors are the reason we are where we are," said head coach Jim Archibald, whose team is 9-1 heading into Thanksgiving Day. "They have been great leaders during the season and in the off-season and we are proud of the run they've been on."
The current senior class has won 30 games over the past three years, including a 21-2 record over the past two seasons. Despite hailing from a number of different area towns, they have all managed to form a bond that has transcended the football field.
"We hang out all the time, we have bonfires, watch movies together, things like that," said Wojnar. "Coming in to BVT, I thought we might all end up hating each other because of the rivalries between the different towns but we all get along as a team."
In addition to Wojnar, Mark Brownell and Chris Nazzaro have served as captains for Valley Tech this year.
"Both Brownell and Nazzaro have played through shoulder injuries and have not missed a snap," said Archibald. "There are times where they come off the field and they can barely lift their arms, but they are as tough as it gets."
Bailey Leacy has been a key cog as a senior at both wide receiver and free safety. Joe Trettel, Brady Neyland, Mike Iacovelli, and David Kwansy are all starters that will be lost to graduation next spring.
"This was one of those classes," said Archibald. "You hope you can maybe get five guys who are key contributors in a class, we got eight, so we were lucky with this group. They helped turn the program in the right direction."
Nazzaro feels the group's tightness off the field has made a direct, positive impact on the Beavers' play. "We will be messing around sometimes at practice and come up with plays on our own," he said. "It's a great feeling to share the success we have had with the other guys on our team and in our senior class, it makes it that much more special."
Thanksgiving will be the final time the group steps on the football field together.
"We try to keep it off our minds, but we know it's coming," said Wojnar. "We don't want it to be our last, so we just try to go out there and play like it's our Super Bowl."
"It's definitely starting to hit us," added Nazzaro. "We have played all four years together and created that bond and brotherhood. It's a bittersweet thing to think that it's almost over, but we have made some great memories and those are definitely going to last."
