Wyomissing sophomore FB/LB Chase Eisenhower

Wyomissing sophomore Chase Eisenhower knows all about the Spartans' tradition of excellence on the gridiron.  His father, Chad, was a standout running back who was inducted in the Wyomissing Football Association Hall of Fame in 2013.  His older brother, Drew, was an All-State defensive back in Class 3A last year.  Drew ran for 962 yards and scored 13 touchdowns.  He's now playing at Misericordia.  Chase is a starting fullback and linebacker for the Spartans this fall.  His younger brother, Brady, is a quarterback in junior high.  "It means a lot to represent the whole thing my family has been through. Everyone comes out and supports it. I think it's amazing," said Chase.  The 5'11, 215-pound bulldozer averaged 6.8 yards per carry on 57 touches as a freshman.  He piled up 111 yards and 2 TD last Friday in a 41-7 rout at Pottsville.  Eisenhower leads Wyomissing's Wing-T attack with 165 rushing yards on 21 carries.  The (2-0) Spartans have tremendous depth in the backfield.  Collin Niedrowski, Drew Forrey, Derek Macrina, Marvin Armistead, and freshman Justice Hardy have been sharing the workload with Eisenhower.  He believes Hardy has a bright future.  "Every time he touches the ball, even on defense, he makes plays. Everyone loves watching him. He's a great player," Eisenhower told SV Sports' Paul Robers.  Hardy had 82 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just five carries in their opener at Kennard-Dale.  He added a 66-yard catch in that 56-7 victory.  Wyomissing is ranked #2 in the state in 3A by PennLive.  The Spartans head to Trinity this Friday for a marquee matchup.  The Shamrocks are #3 in the 2A statewide poll.  Wyomissing has won 37 consecutive regular season games.  The Spartans went (13-1) a season ago and reached the state semifinals.  They captured their fourth straight District 3 championship.  "I think we can be the same, if not better than last year if we keep working," stated Eisenhower.
