FinestPreps.com is back at it again–bringing you some of the top names of the high school gridiron in America.
Who’s the next gridiron great we’ve decided to unveil at FinestPreps.com?
That would be none other than Mount Lebanon (Pittsburgh, Pa.) running back Luke Hagy.
Hagy may well be one of the most gifted all-around high school athletes in the state of Pennsylvania.
The three-sport standout (football, basketball, and baseball) started in all three sports as a sophomore.
In basketball, he led the Blue Devils to a WPIAL AAAA state championship as a sophomore.
As a junior–he led the Mount Lebanon football team to a 10-1 overall record and in basketball he led them to a 27-4 overall record and a class AAAA state title game appearance.
That’s not even mentioning he holds the shotput record for his middle school!
Hagy can make it happen in a variety of sports–but make no mistake about it–the 6’0, 185 pound running back is one of the top football players in the state of Pennsylvania for the 2012 recruiting class.
In 2010, he was named to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette’s Fabulous 22–a prestigious list comprised of some of the top high school football stars in Western Pennsylvania.
When watching his highlight tape–it’s easy to see Hagy has excellent field vision and follows his blocks extremely well down the field.
When combined with his speed and acceleration–all those elements become rather unstoppable for opposing high school defenses.
The tailback makes his running style look rather effortless and he makes it look easy out there.
Last year for Mount Lebanon, he shredded opposing defenses for 1,981 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns on 282 attempts (7.0 yards per carry).
His numbers are staggering but the surprising thing is Hagy hasn’t even been offered a scholarship by a Division I-A (FBS) school yet.
The shifty tailback has been drawing interest from schools such as West Virginia, Pitt, Dusquesne, Maryland, and some Ivy League schools.
Look for the recruiting process to heat up sometime in the future for the gifted athlete!
