One of the most formidable defensive linemen in the history of Panther football Sean Gilbert also attended Aliquippa. One current Quip standout recently received an offer from the Panthers; the scary part is he has the potential to be the best of the lot.
After seeing countless numbers of prospects live and on tape throughout the
year there are several who I feel are under the radar. They may not have
the hype or star power as some, but are legitimate D-1 prospects. Aliquippa
(PA) wide receiver Tommie Campbell (6-3, 195, 4.4) may have been at the top
of the list.
Campbell didn't attend any big time combines, his coach hasn't sent out any
tape, but folks in Western Pennsylvania who have seen him play know that
he's star in the making. Campbell has caught 13 passes for 330 yards, and 7
touchdowns. He has returned one of his 4 interceptions for a touchdown.
Earlier in the year against Quaker Valley Campbell set a school record when
he returned a punt 99-yards for a touchdown.
Even his statistics don't tell the tale, as he plays on an extremely deep
team, that returned a number of players from last years PIAA Class AA state
championship squad. Coach Mike Zmijanic has the comfort in knowing he has a
whole arsenal of weapons, which is a luxury most teams playing at the AA
level don't often have.
Recently, Campbell received his first two written scholarship offers.
"Pittsburgh and Eastern Michigan have offered me," said Campbell
Campbell is in the process of sending out senior tape to several schools
that have inquired about him including Syracuse, Connecticut, Cincinnati,
and Central Michigan.
Don't expect a decision anytime soon.
"I'm going to wait until after the season and maybe schedule some visits."
Aliquippa (10-0) will play Ford City at Deer Lakes in the second round of
the WPIAL Class AA playoffs this weekend.
