Western New York continues to develop talent as they hold camps to improve the skills of their athletes. On Saturday, they held another such event as a 7-on-7 camp. Some offensive players stood out during the event.
Todd LaRocca (2016 QB): Only a freshman, LaRocca showed a rocket arm combined with strong accuracy. During drills, he hit his receiver in stride on quick slants over the middle, out patterns, fly routes, corner routes, and post routes. LaRocca can fire the ball into a tight window, as well as throw the ball with touch down the field. He is a prospect to watch, and has all the makings of a stud. He was very, very impressive.
Jaquan McCullough (2014 WR): On McCullough's highlight tape, he primarily plays quarterback. He is athletic, but it was hard to tell how he could project at a different position. In person, McCullough showed solid quickness out of his break and speed down the field. He ran solid routes, squaring off his in and out routes. He ran the corner route to perfection, burning defensive backs on several occasions. He sometimes drops easy passes, and must work on being more consistent with his hands.
Keshawn Howard (2017 QB): Only an 8th grader, Howard was extremely impressive throwing the ball. He has surprising arm strength despite his age, and is able to throw with touch as well. He is a rising prospect who, if he continues to develop, should be getting major looks in a few years. He threw very well during drills and definitely made a strong impression.
Micah Wright (2014 WR): Wright showed an ability to create separation from defensive backs and make plays on the ball. He has strong ball skills and a quick first step, which gives him solid position against his opponent. Wright needs to work on his route running and consistency with his hands, but showed flashes of being a playmaker.
