Lampeter-Strasburg QB Trent Wagner

Trent Wagner takes a lot of pride in being a multi-sport athlete.  In addition to being the quarterback on the football team, Wagner also plays basketball and lacrosse at Lampeter-Strasburg.  "Growing up, I think I played every sport imaginable. I love getting out there and playing a ton of sports. I think coaches take a lot of good recognition in that," said Wagner.  The 5'11, 160-pound senior enjoys football the most and hopes to play in college.  Wagner was named the first team QB in Section 4 of the Lancaster-Lebanon League in 2022.  He threw for 1,668 yards and 21 touchdowns.  The (9-3, 6-1) Pioneers finished second in the section to Wyomissing.  The Spartans, along with Berks Catholic and Conrad Weiser, moved from the Berks Football League to the L-L League last year.  "It definitely made the competition a lot more's tough," Wagner told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  Lampeter-Strasburg reached the District 3-4A semifinals before falling at Manheim Central 42-7.  L-S is ranked #10 in the state in Class 4A by Pennsylvania Football News.  The Pioneers must replace some key cogs on the offensive line, as well as Hunter Hildenbrand.  The Section 4 WR of the Year moved on to Shippensburg University.  The good news is that running back Carson Coleman, tight end Drexton Frank, and receiver Dean Herr are all back.  Coleman piled up 1,110 rushing yards and 17 scores.  He's also a dangerous kick returner.  Herr, a first team WR in Section 4, reeled in 6 TD a season ago.  Jackson Heeter will lead the defense.  The senior linebacker made 194 tackles over the past two years.  L-S takes on neighboring Solanco this Friday in the battle for the milk jug.  The Pioneers will host Wyomissing in Week 10.  Wagner, who enjoys watching Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers, is looking forward to the start of the season.  "We have great chemistry. I've been friends with these guys as long as I can remember," he replied.
