The event started with testing in the forty and right out the gate sophomore Ibareheim Campbell (Chestnut Hill Academy, Philadelphia, PA) ran an impressive time of 4.39 to set the stage of what was to come the rest of the day. Campbell, not only tested well he dominated the one on one drills at corner.
Pennsylvania was not the only state who bought athletes, Delaware had some talent represented their as well. Quarterback, William Jones and Offensive lineman Terrace Bourne ran impressive times. William Jones showed his versatility on offense by throwing the football at quarterback and splitting out at wide as a receiver. Offensive lineman, Terrace had an exceptional forty time at 4.89. We spoke to William Jones about his experience at the Underclassmen Showcase and replied, "This was a great experience for me. I felt that I did very well and I just wanted to come down to jersey and make a name or myself".
New Jersey had some talent that represented as well; Immaculata's Kyle Jordan was physically put together at (5'10 193lbs). He will be force to reckon with at the middle linebacker spot. He will also share the backfield with Notre Dame's newest addition, Theo Riddick. Also in attendance was standout Antonio Sibilia from Nutley HS. He measured in at (6'0"/196lbs) and ran a 4.6 forty. Sibilia plays linebacker at Nutley HS, but is built like a strong safety. Some think that he will play strong safety at the next level. Antonio made a named for himself at the national 7 on 7 in Akron, Ohio and has been dominating every since. Piscataway linebacker Kyle Polk (6'0"/190lbs) had a good day at linebacker and also tested well in the forty, short shuttle, and vertical. Polk also looks like he can play strong safety at the next level.
Delbarton's Quarterback EJ Schneider had a great day throwing the football. His ball placement in the one on one's and 7 on 7 was superb. Plainfield's James Williams (5'8/180lbs) and Terrell Godley (5'7 160lbs) had exceptional days. Williams showed explosiveness at the tailback position. Godley was the overall MVP of the day. Terrell impressed everyone with his quickness and his route running ability. He was un-guardable at receiver.
Hillsborough's Chris Rossi (5'11/252lbs) dominated the offensive line and defensive line during the individual session. The top performers got their ticket punched early to the National 7 on 7 tournament at Ohio State. We will keep you posted on all the participants from the Underclassmen Showcase.
