Juniata Grad Re-Signs with Stampede
HARRISBURG, PA (November 26, 2012) - Harrisburg Stampede Head Coach, Bernie Nowotarski announced today that the Stampede has come to terms with one the of the teams most versatile players, Josh Finafrock.
The Waynesboro HS and Juniata grad has spent most of his post college career with the Chambersburg Cardinals. Last season was his first year with the Stampede. Josh found himself on the game day 20 man roster as the back-up QB. With a 20 man roster it is very easy to find yourself playing another position for a variety of reasons. Josh found himself playing wide receiver; extra point and field goal holder as well as positions on the kick-off and kick return teams.
As back-up QB, Josh did get in some game night snaps. Josh threw 36 passes and completed 14 passes and 5 of those completions were for touchdowns. He also had 4 solo tackles from his special team position. On Offense he was asked to jump in the game at wide receiver due to a series of injuries during the game and complied 3 receptions for 23 yards.
"Josh is a great team player. He works hard at practice and he always understands each and every game plan that we have set up, but he knows the QB's game plan, the wide receivers game plan and all the special team game plans. He has a fantastic understanding of the game. He is a go to player and is a big asset to our team and is well respected by his team mates and coaching staff." commented Coach Nowotarski.
