HUBBARD OH- Coming in to 2022 a lot of the football “experts” around the area weren’t giving Hubbard too much of a chance to do much. They graduated TC Caffey who accounted for about 85% of the offense from a year ago. However senior Ben Wilcox would not let his teammates listen to the noise. This Eagles team just went to work despite what people were saying. To no one’s surprise inside the building, and to many’s surprise outside the building the Eagles have put together a fine season to this point. They’ve done it with lock down defense, and clutch offense. Ben Wilcox has been a fantastic leader for his team. He has been in the thick of the program and understands the standards of success it has. He has been able to mirror that to his teammates. His senior leadership has been a rock to the locker room, and his importance to the team’s success goes way beyond the numbers he puts up.
Lets look at those numbers he’s putting up this year for the Eagles. He has gained 524 yards on the ground on 120 carries. That’s an average of 4.5 yards per touch. He has found the end zone 3 times. His longest run of the season is a 54 harder. Wilcox is also a good defender for this Eagles team that has leaned on their ability to stop teams when it counts. He is second the team with 54 tackles.
Wilcox took the time to sit with Anthony Hartwig this week and talk about his senior season. They discuss proving people wrong, what their keys to victory have been, and so much more. Check out the latest Hubbard Football Player Profile only on YSN!
