The West Perry junior fullback dislocated an elbow early last season in his first varsity start, then returned midseason only to break his wrist in the first game back. After an entire offseason he felt more ready than ever, yet dislocated his other elbow during training camp.
It wasn’t until last week in a win against Greencastle-Antrim, his first start and first action of the year, that he got through a full game (on limited snaps) without getting injured. And Friday night at Mustang Stadium he said he no longer felt timid.
It showed. Fadness wheeled down the left hashmarks and was left wide open on busted coverage in the second quarter. Senior quarterback Dom Salinetro hit him 25 yards down field, only a hair underthrown, and Fadness chugged the rest of the way for a 60-yard score on his first career varsity reception. It was the opening salvo in West Perry’s 21-7 win over Big Spring (3-3, 0-2), suddenly putting the Mustangs (2-3, 2-0) atop the Mid-Penn Colonial with Waynesboro, Week 5 winners over Northern.
