“This is going to be an interesting year. We are a young team but an extremely talented one. Abington is going to come out and shock some people who have been sleeping on us.

“The Redskins are senior heavy this season and have leadership at all positions particularly in goal and on defense. Offense includes SOL 2nd team Matt Magdalinskas. Defense consists of SOL 3rd Team Goalie Austin Marshall and defenseman Jake Kitchenman and SOL honorable mention LSM Dillion Richards.

“This team is ready to open some eyes and bounce back from a sub-par 2012 campaign. The installation of a new offense and defense will facilitate the team coming together quickly early on in the season as we prepare for a difficult league schedule. We have the pieces in place to be much more competitive this season.”
