4x All-Pro DL-Daryk Maki back in action for 2023
The Erie Express are pleased to announce the return of 4x All-Pro DL-Daryk Maki (Wadsworth, HS) for the 2023 season. Daryk begins his fifth season with the Express and is a projected starter on the defensive line.
Due to work, family and medical reasons Daryk has not been full time with us since 2019. His last game with us was the 2021 GDFL Xtreme Conference Championship which Daryk played a major role in our winning and launched us into the GDFL National Championship Game.
In his first season (2018) with the Express, Daryk helped lead us to the GDFL Xtreme Conference Championship game and a 9-1 overall record. We finished the regular season as the only undefeated team in the GDFL, a #1 ranking overall as well as #1 Offense and Defense, Xtreme East Division Champions and a birth in the Xtreme Conference Finals.
For the season Daryk finished with 46 tackles, (14 solo 32 assist), 19 tackles for loss for -111yds, 8 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, 2 fumbles caused and a pair of pass breakups. For his efforts Daryk was awarded GDFL All-Pro status, his fourth time being named All-Pro.
Prior to joining the Express Maki played three seasons with the Ohio Golden Knights and Ohio Raiders. Maki played a major role in the Golden Knights league and National Championships.
A graduate of Wadsworth, HS in Wadsworth, Ohio, Maki was a standout on the football and wrestling teams. Daryk earned two varsity letters in wrestling and was named All-Region. In football he was a three year letter winner and was twice named All-State as a defensive lineman.
"Daryk is that guy that every coach would want on their defensive line. We have missed him the past few seasons being here full time. When he is here, the opponent is well aware very quickly. He demands a double team and that frees up our other dogs. If they want to block him one on one...well we like that too. Daryk is in tremendous shape and ready to get back to his All-Pro performing ways in 2023."-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
