The Cardinals surprised many winning their first sectional and regional

East Chicago Central won its first ever Sectional and Regional title en route to a 11-3 season. EC fell hard to Dwenger in the Semi State 38-0. The Cardinals do have plenty of top level college recruits.

Everyone knows about electrifying Martayveus Carter. The Northern Illinois recruits became the schools all time leading tackler and scored the most touchdowns in school history. He is expected to play running back at NIU.
He should not be the only D1 recruit as TreQuan Burnett, Patrick Shaw, Anthony Hunt, Ricky Readus and Christian Guerrero are getting plenty of attention.

Burnett broke many receiving records on his way to 35 receptions for 876 yards and 12 touchdowns. He is a very under rated prospect.

Shaw playing middle linebacker had 212 tackles including 31 for loss. He might be a hair undersize for a BCS program. Some lucky school is getting a great linebacker.
Guerrero has blossomed into a top prospect the last two years. He has Illinois, Kentucky. Cincinnati and others wanting to place him at a high level JUCO. Iowa Western, Arizona Western and Hutchinson all interested in his services. Saftey Jason Stewart and tackle Denzel Thruston should also garner top level junior college attention.
Readus is a speedy DE who moved in from Pennsylvania this season. He had 115 tackles including 33 for a loss.

Hunt is an overlooked RB who had over 2,000 career rushing yards.
