Manheim Central star WR/DB/KR Aaron Enterline

Aaron Enterline has followed Manheim Central's football program his entire life.  He remembers being heartbroken as a child when the Barons would lose.  Now he's one of the players that young fans come to see.  "To get the chance to play in front of other little kids that look up to you, it's really neat," Enterline told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  Manheim Central has done a lot of winning over the years and the Barons are poised for another exciting season.  They've claimed a record 18 District 3 championships and 27 Section 2 titles in the Lancaster-Lebanon League.  The Barons captured state gold in 2003.  The program is just six victories shy of 600.  Manheim Central went (11-2, 5-1) last year while averaging 48 points.  The Barons were the runner-up in both Section 2 and District 3-4A.  The L-L League had a new look in 2022 with the merger of 13 teams from Berks County.  "I thought it was pretty cool because it added more competition," said Enterline.  Manheim Central fell to Exeter 21-17 in Week 10 with the Section 2 trophy on the line.  Enterline finished the season with 42 catches for 994 yards and twelve touchdowns.  The 6'3, 180-pound rising senior made three interceptions at cornerback.  He was named the Section 2 WR of the Year.  Enterline was also a first team pick at kick returner in the section.  He will be surrounded by plenty of talent this fall including all-state running back Brycen Armold, senior quarterback Zac Hahn, and fellow receiver Bode Sipel.  Armold led the league with 2,242 rushing yards and 34 scores.  Hahn threw for 2,210 yards and a league-high 29 TD passes.  Enterline, who's getting Division II interest on the gridiron, is also part of the Barons' basketball squad.  "It helps a lot. I learned that I was a lot more explosive than I thought I was. I didn't think I could just stand under the hoop and turn around and dunk the ball," he replied.  Manheim Central won 22 games and the Section 2 title a season ago.  They got tripped up by Exeter 67-53 in the District 3-5A final at the Giant Center.  Before Enterline turns his attention back to hoops, he's hoping to bring the Section 2 football championship back to Manheim.  "We have a really good shot this year," he stated.
