Wyomissing’s Aiden Mack commits to Richmond

As a tight end in the Wyomissing Wing-T offense, Aiden Mack doesn’t get targeted too often.

But the 6-4, 220-pound senior receives plenty of action, even though much of it goes unnoticed.

“I love blocking so I’ll never make complaints about that,” Mack said. “The Wing-T is a great system for a tight end. You look like an All-Star putting people on the ground.”

After putting together a tape of his performances, Mack was impressive enough to get looks from several Division I schools. He decided to make a commitment to Richmond.

“I loved the campus, the facilities are insane and you add the academic part of it, that’s what sold me,” Mack said.

Mack said he chose Richmond over Cincinnati, Rutgers and Vanderbilt and several other schools that were impressed with his tape.

“The majority of my tape is the down block; that’s my role 95% of the time,” Mack said. “I just go down and put people on the ground and it looks good.”

Mack, who doubles as a linebacker, also looks good on the occasions when Wyomissing throws the football his way. In Saturday’s 35-7 win over Boyertown, Mack caught a 49-yard pass from Ben Zechman on the Spartans’ first possession to set up a touchdown.

He spent the rest of the day trying to knock people down as Wyomissing rushed for 216 yards to run its record to 3-0 heading into Saturday’s Berks II opener against Hamburg at home.

“I do what the coach needs me to do,” Mack said. “At the end of the day, a win is better than me having 200 yards. If they need me to block, I’ll block. If I catch, I’ll catch.”

Mack has gained 105 yards on his only two receptions this season. Last year, he had eight catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns after catching five passes for 64 yards and a TD as a sophomore.

Mack’s biggest TD catch was a 14-yarder from Zach Zechman to open the scoring in the first quarter of Wyomissing’s 38-16 win over Middletown, which led to the Spartans’ second straight District 3 Class 3A championship.

“I’m ready to step up where I’m needed,” Mack said.

He could get more chances when he gets to college and plays in the spread offense run by Richmond coach Russ Huesman.
