Chesapeake Player Recap: North - Part 3

The Chesapeake Bowl recently held its inaugural game with the South Team coming away with a 30-27 comeback victory over the North Team. Most would agree that the talent on the field and the coaching on the sidelines made this event a rousing success.

Scout.com takes a detailed look at each player on both rosters and reviews their performances during the week from practices and the game itself. We continue the performance reviews with the North Team (consisting of players from PA, NJ and DE).

TE Ryan Malleck, Point Pleasant (NJ) – Malleck, a soft verbal to Maryland, has a great tight end body for high school. He is only going to get bigger and faster on the next level. He can get downfield and has the size to take advantage of the defensive backs. He is a good athlete that also played safety for his high school. He showed good hands in practice. He lined up on the outside as a receiver throughout the week. He had a couple balls thrown his way in the game but they didn't connect.

DB Lafayette Pitts, Woodland Hills (PA) – Pitts was all over the field, literally. He was used at several positions during the practices including running back, wide receiver, defensive back and kick returner. He made plays regardless of where he lined up. He runs effortlessly and always seems to be in good position. He is still not sure where he will play in college but his versatility will be a huge aspect of his game on the next level. In the game he had 4 tackles, a pass broken up and 2 kick returns of 21 and 10 yards.

RB Montay Green, Fox Chapel (PA) – Green is a tough, straight ahead runner. He is best when he makes one cut and go. Has good size and can grow into a fullback on the next level. He has good forward lean and always seems to fall forward, something you look for in an inside runner. He had some good tough runs in practice. In the game he had 2 runs for 8 yards.

LB Corey Majors, Neshaminy (PA) – The Villanova commit is a tough inside backer. He is good in the run game and can fight off the blocks to make the play. He needs to work on his pass coverage which I think limited his reps in practice and the game. He is a thick kid that should help Villanova early. He made 2 tackles in the game.

LB Ben Kline, Dallastown (PA) – The Penn State commit is exactly what you would expect from a Penn State linebacker. He is tough, aggressive, great in run support and athletic enough to drop 30 yards downfield in coverage which he did a couple times in practice. Kline has all the tools. He has good speed and is a sure tackler. He is a great teammate and has the desire to learn and improve. He made 5 tackles in the game.

DB Kyshoen Jarrett, East Stroudsburg (PA) – The Virginia Tech commit was the lockdown corner for the North Team. He will excel in the Hokie defense. He was matched up with the best in practice and the best in the game. When you are always matching up with the best athletes on the offense you will give up plays here and there but Jarrett established himself as a great cover guy that can make big plays for the defense. He has good reaction and timing. He was easily one of the most impressive players all week. Jarrett had a great game with 2 interceptions, 4 passes broken up and 2 tackles.

P Keith Stambaugh, Spring Grove (PA) – Stambaugh can really help a team on the next level. He has good technique and can really get on a roll. Needs to work on consistency but has a strong leg and ability to drop it inside the 20 yard line. He was busy in the game with 6 punts (7th was called back) for a 39.2 yard average which was impressive on a very cold night.

LB Nick Rossi, Riverside (PA) – The Akron commit has good size and has some wheels. He is an active backer that gets to the ball in a hurry. He is a great special team's player as he is willing to go full speed and blow up any blocker in his way. He is a good tackler and has a nose for the ball. Rossi had 5 tackles in the game.

LB Devon Barrett, Lansdale Catholic (PA) – Barrett is another player that excels on special teams. He has a nice combination of size and speed. He has the mentality and instincts for backer. He is a tough kid that is physical at the point of contact and can hold his position and make the play. Barrett had 4 tackles in the game.

DE Deion Barnes, Northeast (PA) – Barnes has a great frame for defensive end. He is all of 6'5" and looks lean at 225 pounds. He will be massive after a few years in college. He was moved to offense and played wide receiver this week as well. Although he was inexperienced and raw on offense he is the kind of athlete that can do just about anything he wants. He had a ball thrown his way that would have been a big gainer if it connected. He also had a tackle on defense with minimal reps.
