Danville Ironmen Football Preview 2016

 

There is much optimism concerning Danville football this season and why not? In 2015, despite starting as many as 14 sophomores and freshmen, the Ironmen finished with a 7-4 overall record and advanced to the District playoffs where they lost to Athens 20-17.

 

Now in his 8th season as head coach, Jim Keiser welcomes back 16 starters. On offense the Ironmen can count on all conference fullback Trent Hilkert who who rushed for 1219 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2015. Gannon Feldman moves from quarterback to funning back. He actually made that transition late last season and rushed for almost 200 yards in the last two games. Peyton Riley who started at wide receiver on offense and corner on defense as a freshman, will take over the quarterback role. Up front the Ironmen can count on Derien Yeager, all conference guard Ken Cooper, and Preston Fausnaught.

 

Danville was good defensively last season, and Keiser thinks they can be as good if not better in 2016. The defense is led by linebackers Ken Cooper and Trent Hilkert and a very talented secondary comprised of Shane Kozick, Peyton Riley, and Peyton Persing.

 

Look for Danville to to be a a contender not only in Division II of the Heartland Conference but in District 4 AAA as well.
