James Wood High School 17-year-old senior
Parents: Mike and Barbara Hepner
Nicknames: When I played Winchester Baseball when I was 9 years old I was called “moondog” because we were at a tournament and I kind of mooned some people and some parents saw me, so they started calling me “moondog.”
What do you love about football: I like the physicality of it, you can take your anger out and everything. And also the bonding a team can have, because you have to work as one as a team and you have to know each other to become one unit.
Biggest strength in football: [Strength] I’d say how diverse I am, I can play multiple positions and I do. And also my leadership, having played varsity for three years I think I’ve learned a lot. [Weakness] I’d say how hard I am on myself, how I strive for perfection. If I make a mistake I need to be better about looking past it.
Colonels Hope Camp Experience Pays Off During Season

WINCHESTER — After spending the first three days of practice at Camp Paddy Run in Star Tannery, James Wood High School’s football team returned for its first two-a-day session on the school’s campus with the Colonels feeling closer and more unified as a team.
And while the Colonels’ three-day camp away from home might have lacked good cell phone coverage and wireless, it seems like the experience served its purpose, helping the players focus solely on football for a few days as James Wood looks to rebound from a one-win season as the rebuilding process continues under second-year coach Mark McHale.
“We got a lot done and it was really a good experience,” McHale said, following Thursday’s second practice. “It’s a lot better focus with quality time with no interruptions. I think it’s put us ahead of this time last year as far as learning and just execution and that type of thing.”
The Colonels, coming off a 1-9 season, practiced twice a day at camp, focusing on offense in the morning session followed by a defensive session in the afternoon.
