Haverford’s Weiss turns muffed punt into a turning point

Before Haverford High’s Central League game with Strath Haven at A.G. Cornog Stadium Friday night, Randy Grossman addressed the team. Despite the words of inspiration from the former Haverford All-Delco, who earned four Super Bowl rings with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Fords didn’t have a good first half.

At halftime, Haverford head coach Joe Gallagher had more than a few words with his players. When Fords junior Travis Weiss muffed the second-half kickoff, things didn’t look like they would get a whole lot better for the home team.

That’s when Weiss let his legs do all his talking. He retreated to the three-yard line, picked up the ball and started up the field. When he stopped running, he was handing the ball to the officials after a 97-yard touchdown return that helped point Haverford toward a 23-17 victory, its third win in a row.

Jordan Mosley, who had seven catches for 185 yards, added an 87-yard scoring reception on the Fords’ second play from scrimmage of the second half.

Nick DiIorio is the biggest of Haverford High’s starting defensive linemen, even if he’s as lean as a Slim Jim.

“Let me give you the physical stats,” coach Joe Gallagher said after practice Wednesday, turning the pages of Haverford’s program book. “He’s the big guy at 6-2, 205. And this is notable because of the way they’re playing.”

DiIorio is the engine. The lone returning starter on the D-line from last season’s Central League championship squad, DiIorio has made the others around him better. Rookie varsity starters Kevin Odgers (5-9, 185), Tyler Kimble (6-2, 190) and Pat Boyle (5-8, 190) have flourished along with DiIorio, the veteran of the bunch.

“We’re not overwhelming anybody with gigantic size,” Gallagher said. “But they’re solid kids in that 180-190 (pound) range. Not gigantic, but they’re very quick and they’re very strong, I’ll give them that. And that’s really the key, the quickness and the strength.”

DiIorio’s play has earned rave reviews. In his 24th season at Haverford, Gallagher called DiIorio one of the best he’s coached.

That’s high praise.
