These players were selected as the Overall Camp MVP's at their position by the camp coaches. This included everything from 1v1's, individual skill position work and other factors. Penn Preps will release it's top performer's list tomorrow.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL QUARTERBACK MVP
Despite heavy competition, Kamal Gray was voted overall top camp performer at the quarterback group. Gray, a dual-threat quarterback, is also being recruited by Division I schools to play baseball (he’s a pitcher). Gray’s accuracy stood out during the drills along with his quick footwork. He has a strong arm and performed very well for somebody who hasn’t thrown a football in a few months.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL RUNNING BACK MVP
Justin DeFrancesco fought off a couple of tough challengers to take home overall top camp performer at the running back position. DeFrancesco displayed quickness and agility as he went through individual drills. During the 1v1 passing segment of the camp, DeFrancesco won the majority of his reps. His performance was not surprising, he was one of the top performers at a previous camp that Penn Preps saw him at.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL OFFENSIVE LINEMAN MVP
Albert Glasgow competed with a deep offensive lineman group and came out with top camp performer honors at the offensive lineman position. Glasgow goes to Archbishop Wood, a school known for churning out good offensive lineman. He looks like he’ll be next in line.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL WIDE RECEIVER MVP
Tahmir Barksdale was one of the top performers at last year’s camp and came back this year to win overall top camp performer. Barksdale’s speed and quickness off the line caused defensive backs problems for most of the day. Barksdale also looked good at a previous camp that Penn Preps attended and continued to shine this past weekend.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL DEFENSIVE LINEMAN MVP
Aaron Alphee graded out the best and won top overall performer at the defensive lineman position. A couple of other defensive linemen had great camps as well, but Alphee’s work during 1v1’s and the individual sessions gave him the edge.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL DEFENSIVE BACK MVP
The defensive back group is always among the best groups at the All-State camps and this year was no exception. It wasn’t a large group in quantity, but it was a great group from a quality standpoint. Ryan Jennings Jr. edged out several others to take home MVP honors. Jennings won the majority of his reps in both press and off-man coverage and made several pass deflections throughout the 1v1 sessions. His work during individual drills helped him edge out others as well.
ALL-STATE FOOTBALL HARRISBURG CAMP OVERALL LINEBACKER MVP
Kevin Littles beat out stiff competition at the linebacker position to win MVP honors. Littles, a middle linebacker, displayed his pass coverage abilities during the 1v1 passing segment. Littles showed great footwork during individual drills and was physical during both of the pass and run 1v1 segments of the camp.
