With pre-season football almost seven weeks away, we take a look at forty players in the Mid-Penn Football Conference in Central Pennsylvania returning for the 2013 season.
Mike Boguski – Trinity – Class of 2014
Andrew Ford – Cedar Cliff – Class of 2014
Mike Lewis – Palmyra – Class of 2015
Michael Schuster – Camp Hill – Class of 2016
Andrew Ford is the crown jewel of the group. Ford committed to Virginia Tech earlier this month and has been invited to Elite 11 and Nike’s The Opening next week in Beaverton, Oregon. Boguski is a seasoned veteran. Lewis should benefit from an improved offense in 2013. Schuster is the young gun of the group and should benefit from what is expected to be a very good run game for Camp Hill this year.
Andre Robinson – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2015
Chase Edmonds – Central Dauphin East – Class of 2014
Jamal Pickett – Chambersburg – Class of 2014
John Ford – Red Land – Class of 2014
Rashard Lawson – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2014
Robert Martin – Harrisburg – Class of 2014
William Burt – Shippensburg – Class of 2014
Robert Martin committed to Rutgers University earlier this month. Chase Edmonds is the most underrated running back in the state of Pennsylvania. His speed and quickness has improved since the 2012 season and he’s emerging as a good defensive back. John Ford is the fastest of this group and will be looked upon to carry the Red Land offense. Andre Robinson, who already holds an offer from several schools including Penn State, is touted at the next big-time running back out of Bishop McDevitt. Rashard Lawson, his backfield mate, is speedy and shifty.
Brandon Kuntz – Trinity – Class of 2014
Darian Davis-Ray – Harrisburg – Class of 2014
Dequan Ware – Harrisburg – Class of 2014
Jordan Brown – Chambersburg – Class of 2014
Jordan Milberry –Susquehanna Township – Class of 2014
Samuel Marshall – East Pennsboro – Class of 2014
Tyler Updegraff – Cumberland Valley – Class of 2014
All of these players excel on both sides of the ball. Pound-for-pound, Jordan Milberry is one of the best players in the Mid-Penn Conference. The most intriguing prospect may be Brandon Kuntz of Trinity. Kuntz is tall and fast and is under the radar for now. Samuel Marshall is being recruited at safety, but don’t sleep on his wide receiver skills. Darian Davis-Ray is a star in the making, especially at running back. Dequan Ware may have the most upside of this whole group. Ware has good speed, can run routes, play cornerback and safety, and is just a great all-around talent. It’s just a matter of him putting it all together on the field.
Dalton Brill – Central Dauphin – Class of 2014
Jordan Mosley – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2014
Codie Zimmerman – Central Dauphin- Class of 2014
Mike Perloski – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2014
Steve Marrazzo – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2014
Trey Klock – Lower Dauphin – Class of 2014
Trey Klock missed some time towards the end of the 2012 season but still should be considered one of the most dominant linemen on either side of the ball. Mike Perloski and Steve Marrazzo are the anchors of McDevitt’s defense. Zimmerman turned some heads with his play during the 2012 season.
Ben Mosey – Central Dauphin – Class of 2014
Jared Folks – Susquehanna Township – Class of 2014
Joe Adams – Harrisburg – Class of 2014
Logan Sangree-Hill – Susquehanna Township – Class of 2014
Nate Monroe – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2014
Jared Folks’ coming out party in 2012 netted him three offers during the offseason including one from Temple. Nate Monroe is under the radar recruiting-wise right now. Logan Sangree-Hill is a good linebacker who may have to change positions as the next level. Ben Mosey is coming off a knee injury that sidelined him for the majority of the 2012 season. Joe Adams had the most dominant season out of this group and may have to switch positions at the next level.
Amechie Walker – Harrisburg – Class of 2015
Kobay White – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2016
Swahneek Brown – Mechanicsburg – Class of 2014
Tre’ Brown – Milton Hershey – Class of 2014
Tyler Wise – Boiling Springs – Class of 2014
Tyrone Gibson – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2015
Kobay White is the next big-time wide receiver coming out of the Mid-Penn if he stays the course. White is already a star in track and field. The best receiver out of the group may be Tre’Brown whose blend of speed, size, and strength can’t go unnoticed for long. Tyrone Gibson is a playmaker, who like Kobay, is a track and field star as well. Swahneek Brown and Tyler wise are underrated. Amechie Walker will look to show his talents after an injury cut his 2012 season short.
Carlos Balkcom – Harrisburg – Class of 2014
JoJo Headen – Bishop McDevitt – Class of 2016
Lawrence Holley Jr. – Susquehanna Township – Class of 2014
James Warren – Steel-High – Class of 2014
Takhi Turner – Susquehanna Township – Class of 2014
Lawerence Holley currently is the only one with offers in the 2014 class. James Warren is one of the best players in Central Pennsylvania, but is severely under the radar from a recruiting standpoint. Watch out for Carlos Balkcom in 2013. Balkcom has the skills and the swag to become one of the best defensive backs in the league. JoJo Headean is an up-and-coming cornerback who flashed enough talent to be considered one of the best in his class after his freshman year.
