With this being Ben Bielawski’s final year of his high school career, he wanted to make it one to remember. This season has gone well for Bielawski with him having 11 sacks in 5 games and 14 TFL (Tackles for loss), which leads the team in both stats.  The team this season so far has gone well for both Biewaski and the Trojans.

“I think this season has gone well. We have some seniors that have stepped up as leaders and some underclass players that are now fitting into their role on the team. We still have a tough schedule ahead that will test how bad we want to win. But when we are playing as a team and for the team, there aren’t many opponents who can stop us,” Bielawski said. 

Bielawski not only focuses on the team aspect of the game but also on his individual accountability and accomplishments. 

“I think I’ve played pretty well. There’s always more work to do and more to learn everyday. The coaches do a great job getting me prepared and put me in the best positions to have success. I just have to keep doing what I’m doing and play like I’m the best on the field every game,” Bielawski said.

This season is far from over, with there being 3 games left in the season, Bielawski hopes to finish this season strong.
