NEW CASTLE — Two Wilmington High football players earned recognition for their efforts this year.

Jeremy Miller received second-team status at defensive tackle and Jon Yohman was a third-team recipient at his offensive line position on the Pennsylvania Football News’ all-state team.

Miller was a three-year starter and a four-year letterwinner.

“I think Jeremy has worked very hard in the weight room and on the field,” Greyhounds coach Terry Verrelli said. “He’s very quick; he’s definitely one of the better linemen in the state in the way he performed and with his abilities.

“He’s a great player.”

Yohman was a four-year starter and a four-year letterwinner.

“Jon has been a consistent player for us for four years,” Verrelli said. “He’s very strong and he takes the game very seriously.

“Jon is smart and he anchors the line for several players.”

Verrelli said both players served as captains for Wilmington.

“They were both leaders of the game,” Verrelli said. “They were certainly two of the key guys we were relying on each week and I think they did a great job.

“They’ll be very difficult to replace, that’s for sure.”
