Our next edition of Rhino Bites features a well-traveled player who spent 2017 with three teams- the Harrisburg Pharaohs, Susquehanna Valley Knights, and Central Penn Piranha. He is a multi-faceted playmaker who appears set to help the Rhinos in all three phases of the game this season.
#1. What do you love the most about the game of football?
JG: I love the thrill, I love. I mean I’ve been playing since I was 6 years old, so I love the mental aspect of the game, too.
#2. When you say ‘mental aspect of the game’, what exactly do you mean?
JG: I mean how, like, football is like a life size version of chess- you have to use your mind to beat the other team.
#3. Which do you prefer, making a great athletic play, or beating an opponent with a great play call/minor adjustment that gets you the position you need?
JG: I prefer to win, and if a great play come with, then that’s just a plus.
#4. Tell our readers about your football history.
JG: I’ve been playing football since I was 6 years old. I played football for the Linglestown Colts. I played my freshman-senior year at CD East and Cumberland Valley High School, and played semi-pro for the Central Penn Piranha.
#5. When you left your previous team, what led you toward the Rhinos?
JG: Well I’ve been in talks with Noah (Sneeringer) as my Piranhas (fall) season was going on, and I’m good friends with (two-way tackle and team leader) Dustin Lauver. They were telling a lot about the organization- how they help out the community a lot. I do a lot of things for the kids, so I wanted to be a part of that. Also, I wanted to be part of the building process.
Well, folks, another edition of Rhino Bites is in the books. Stay tuned for our next new player segment, featuring Carroll County native Josiah Angell.
