No 10. (Tie) DL/OL Tom McEowen, 6-4/269/5.12, Neshaminy
Honors: First-team All-League as a sophomore/junior, Courier-Times Golden first-team, SE PA SOL Golden 11 Juniors.
Statistical Analysis: 89 tackles, 15 tackles for losses, five sacks and two forced fumbles.
Scout.com Report: If there's a kid with a better work ethic than McEowen, I'd like to see him. He dedicated himself to the game and to making himself better; he gained 40 pounds in a little over a year. Neshaminy coach Mark Schmidt calls him a perfectionist. Lineman depth is lacking in the class of 2006, and McEowen could end up at the top of the class. McEowen ran a 5.12 and an amazing 4.34 shuttle at the F&B Combine last spring.
No 7. WR/DB John Maddox, 6-4/195/4.5, West Philadelphia Catholic
Honors: First-team All-Catholic Blue Division offense and defense, first-team All-City DB by the Philadelphia Daily News.
Statistical Analysis: Had 690 yards receiving as a sophomore. As a junior, Maddox caught 24 passes for 504 yards and eight touchdowns. Maddox also intercepted nine passes.
Scout.com Report: Potentially the best receiver in the state. Great combination of size and speed. Has outstanding body control and strong hands. West Catholic coach Brian Fluck says, "John is an outstanding football player, but an even better young man,"
No 4. (Tie) QB Pat Devlin, 6-4/205/4.7, Downingtown East
Honors: First-team Associated Press Class AAAA All-State, first-team All-Chester-Montgomery County.
Statistical Analysis: Passed for 2,913 yards and 27 touchdowns as a sophomore. Completed 147 of 231 passes for 2,237 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior.
Scout.com Report: You could go either way between Devlin and Mechanicsburg QB Zach Frazer as to who is the top QB in the state next year. Devlin has a nice touch on his passes. He has a live arm, annd his drops and mechanics are perfect. You can tell he is well coached. He is very mobile and has great pocket presence.
The Skinny: Has been receiving interest from Florida State, Miami, Virginia, Boston College, Penn State, Indiana, and Wisconsin. (Editor's note: Devlin now has written offers from Rutgers, Virginia and Maryland).
