With a lingering concussion, Cashion running back Dylan Kordeliski didn’t get off to a strong start last season.

Neither did Cashion’s offense.

But they all finished strong as Kordeliski rushed for 1,444 yards and 22 touchdowns last season.

Now that he’s healthy to start the season so far, he’s taking on more of a leadership role.

Kordeliski will be joined in the backfield this season by Blakely Liebmann, who moved from Piedmont in the spring.
