Dan VitaleScott Powers/ESPNChicago.comWheaton Warrenville South (Wheaton, Ill.) loses star running back Dan Vitale, but the Tigers return a number of other top performers to make some national rankings noise.
During the offseason, we’ll check out one team per week that looks like a sure bet to be among the best in the nation in the fall.

FAB 50 Offseason Primer Archive

This week’s team: Wheaton Warrenville South (Wheaton, Ill.)

2011 Season: 10-4, Class 7A state finalist

Projected 2012 Preseason Ranking: Top 35. The Tigers rebounded well after a 1-3 start, but their quest for a third consecutive state championship was thwarted by unbeaten Boylan (Rockford, Ill.) in last year’s 7A title game. With two state titles and a runner-up finish in the past three years, Wheaton Warrenville South is buoyed in the FAB 50 by that track record of success. In 2010, the Tigers finished No. 13 in the rankings after winning the second of their back-to-back championships.

Team Strengths: The 2010 title team was senior-dominated, which made last season's state runner-up finish an unexpected surprise. The Tigers will field a more experienced squad in 2012. Injuries forced the team to use three quarterbacks last season, and two of them will return in the fall: sophomores Ryan Graham (6-2, 180) and Jordan Davis (6-2, 185). Graham saw time on the varsity squad during the regular season, while Davis was an emergency starter in the playoffs after starting for the sophomore team all fall. Replacing senior running back Dan Vitale will be the No. 1 task on offense. The Northwestern recruit rushed for 1,340 yards and 17 scores in 2011. The good news is that Vitale was running behind an offensive line made up entirely of juniors, so whoever takes his place will be running behind an experienced unit. Junior Corey Davis (6-3, 195) will also be back at wide receiver. There are questions on the defensive side of the ball, but overall the Tigers appear poised once again to challenge for a state crown.

Another Illinois team to watch: Joliet Catholic (Joliet, Ill.) was 11-3 last season and finished as Class 5A state runner-up to Montini in a wild 70-45 finale, the highest scoring title game in state history. ESPNU 150 Watch List member Ty Isaac will be back after a junior season in which he rushed for 2,629 yards, including 515 in the title game defeat. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound bruiser will be joined in the backfield by junior quarterback Craig Slowik. The Hilltoppers will be seeking an unprecedented 14th state crown, including a seventh for coach Dan Sharp.

FAB 50 Offseason Primer: Central Dauphin

FAB 50 Offseason Primer Archive

This week’s team: Central Dauphin (Harrisburg, Pa.).

2011 Season: 15-1, PIAA AAAA state champion, No. 38 in the final POWERADE FAB 50.

Projected 2012 Preseason Ranking: Top 15. The Rams celebrated their first state title last season with a team that featured several underclass standouts. Coach Glen McNamee's squad won its final 14 games after losing to rival Bishop McDevitt (Harrisburg, Pa.). The team defeated defending state champ North Allegheny (Wexford, Pa.) in the semifinals and then upended perennial contender North Penn (Lansdale, Pa.) in the championship. The Rams will likely enter the reason ranked No. 1 in the Keystone State, a spot that’s always going to translate to a high ranking in the FAB 50.

Team Strengths: The three most productive offensive players for the Rams will return for their senior seasons in the fall and that spells problems for upset-minded foes. Quarterback Brandon LaVia ran a balanced attack, throwing for 1,490 yards and 16 touchdowns and rushing for four scores. Running back/linebacker Zayd Issah was league MVP on offense, but he’s just as touted on the defensive side. He finished the year rushing for 1,345 yards and 21 touchdowns and catching 10 touchdown passes on offense and racking up 123 tackles and 14 sacks on defense. Junior running back/defensive back Drew Scales had nine touchdowns on offense and was also a dynamic kickoff returner.

Another Pennsylvania team to watch: North Allegheny (Wexford, Pa.) had its unbeaten season and bid for a second straight PIAA AAAA state crown halted in the state semifinals by Central Dauphin, which won 23-20 on a last-second field goal. The Tigers, who finished No. 49 in the FAB 50, could be in the running for another state crown in the fall with the return of eight all-conference players, three of which earned all-state honors. ESPNHS Underclass All-American and two-way lineman Patrick Kugler, a Michigan commit, will anchor both lines. Quarterback Mack Leftwich will run the offense after accounting for 36 touchdowns as a junior.

FAB 50 Offseason Primer: Union (Okla.)

FAB 50 Offseason Primer Archive

This week’s team: Union (Tulsa, Okla.)

2011 Season: 13-1, Class 6A state champion for fourth straight year, No. 24 in the final POWERADE FAB 50.

Projected 2012 Preseason Ranking: Top 15. Though one of Union’s two wins against longtime rival Jenks (Okla.) was by just one point, the Redskins have without question become the state’s dominant program and no longer have to share top billing with the Trojans. Twelve starters that helped Union edge Broken Arrow (Okla.) 23-22 in the state final are underclassmen, so the 2012 team could be one of the best in school history. Coach Kirk Fridrich will also take next season’s team on a challenging road trip to face Texas powerhouse and three-time state champ Trinity (Euless, Texas).

Team Strengths: Junior quarterback Hunter Atyia tops a very talented cast of skill players, while junior defensive end Dalton Rodriguez is one of many standouts expected back to lead the defense. Atyia accounted for nearly 2,300 yards of total offense this past season. He’ll be helped out by freshman running back Terrel Buchanan, who excelled late in the season after standout running back Kendall Holmes was suspended. Buchanan became an instant star and was one of the best freshmen in the nation. Junior receivers Chris Hall and Kahlil Barnett will help Atyia in the passing game. Rodriguez will likely be the team’s top recruit next season, while sophomore linebacker Coleby Evans was second on the team in tackles. Evans was a star in the state final, returning a fumble 30 yards for a touchdown that tied the game (the ensuing extra point was the game-winner) and picking off a pass earlier in the fourth quarter to set up another score.

Another Oklahoma team to watch: MacArthur (Lawton) reached the Class 5A state final last year and lost in a battle of undefeated teams to Guthrie (Okla.) 24-7. The Highlanders will return 6-foot-1, 220-pound running back Darius Graham, one of the top college prospects in the state for the Class of 2013. Graham rushed for nearly 1,500 yards as a junior. Second-leading tackler Derek Block also will be back. You can never count out Jenks, of course, in Class 6A and the Trojans will have another big-time running back in junior Trey’Vonne Barr’e, who rushed for more than 2,000 yards last season.

Elite 11 Tracker: Lessons learned

December, 21, 2011

Quarterback is widely regarded as the toughest position not just in football, but in all of sports. Success under center requires a rare blend of physical prowess, character and courage. While there are certainly 11 players contributing to every play, if there is one position in this ultimate team sport that demands decisive leadership on every snap, it's at QB.

With the specificity and importance of the position in mind, the Elite 11 regional camps and week-long final event seek to gather the best incoming senior prep quarterbacks in the country every spring and summer in order to teach and test these talented signal-callers with the best coaching and competition available. In 2011, the 13th year of the Elite 11 QB competition, a supremely talented crop of 24 quarterbacks was fielded.

ESPNHS spoke with some of the elite arms that made it to the campus of Pepperdine in Malibu, Calif. this past July for the event finals about their experiences during the Elite 11 process and how it prepared them for their senior seasons and propelled their games to another level.

Weekend FAB 50 Football Primer

November, 17, 2011


No. 3 Allen (Allen, Texas) 11-0 vs. No. 8 Euless Trinity (Euless, Texas) 11-0 at Cowboys Stadium, 2 p.m., Saturday

The state playoffs in Texas take to the bigger stages this weekend, none bigger than Cowboys Stadium and no game bigger than Allen versus Euless Trinity in Class 5A Division I.

It might seem odd to outsiders that such a matchup between two such highly-ranked teams would be taking place in essentially the second round of the playoffs, but these are high school playoffs where true seedings in many states are impractical due to travel.

When these two met last year, Euless Trinity was No. 1 in the FAB 50, while Allen was unranked nationally due to suffering a loss to Hebron (Lewisville, Texas). Trinity won 37-35 before a throng of 40,000 in Cowboys Stadium.

Neither team is No. 1 in the FAB 50 heading into this week’s game, but both are in the top 10. The winning team, especially if that team goes on to win the title in the toughest division in the state, would also have a chance to climb to the top spot if current No. 1 Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) were to suffer an upset.

Allen was the preseason No. 1 by many in Texas and has become accustomed to falling behind in games and then roaring back in the second half. The Eagles did it again in last week’s 30-17 playoff triumph over Central (Keller, Texas). One of the reasons they are so hard to put away is a balanced, high-scoring offense featuring quarterback Alec Morris (committed to Alabama) and running back Jonathan Williams (committed to Arkansas).

Trinity has had more easy wins, but the Trojans also may not have played as strong a schedule. In its 55-36 victory last week over Duncanville (Duncanville, Texas), running back Joel Kimpela rushed for 269 yards and scored five touchdowns. The only close game of the season was a 38-35 victory in September over Heritage (Colleyville, Texas).

Wes Brown, Good Counsel (Olney, Md.)

When you are on the same team as Stefon Diggs, the No. 10 player in the ESPNU 150, it’s sometimes hard to be noticed as a star yourself but Brown sure did a good job of that last weekend and could be primed to have another huge outing in this week’s championship game of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC).

The 6-foot, 200-pound senior running back recorded his most productive outing in a 47-7 romp over St. John's (Washington, D.C.) in the semifinals of the WCAC playoffs. Brown ran 14 times for 226 yards and four touchdowns for the No. 6 ranked team in the FAB 50.

On the season, Brown has carried 139 times for 1,225 yards and 19 scores. While Diggs has lived up to his billing with a series of explosive outings, Brown has been right behind him. He’s received more than 20 college scholarship offers himself, most from Big East schools, and is the No. 11 prospect in Maryland according to ESPNU.

If Diggs, Brown and the rest of the Falcons get a win on Saturday against Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.) they would close a 12-0 season that also will guarantee them no worse than a No. 6 final national ranking. Not many Maryland teams have ever been better.

No. 16 Bellevue (Bellevue, Wash.) 11-0 at Lakes (Lakewood, Wash.) 11-0, Friday

From a recruiting angle and for what the team has done so far this season, Lakes may be ready to make a major splash on the national stage in this Class 3A state quarterfinal. The Lancers have averaged 53 points per game and among their best players is ESPNU 150 member Zach Banner, a 6-8, 305-pound tackle, and defensive back Cedric Dozier, committed to Cal. Others that have shined for coach Dave Miller are quarterback David Wood (1,900 yards, 27 touchdowns) and running back Levonte Littlejohn (1,014 yards).

The reason that Lakes is not higher than No. 16 in the West Region is that the schedule has been devoid of very many highly-ranked opponents. Plus, Bellevue last year played the Lancers and had little trouble in a 35-7 victory.

After last year’s win, Bellevue went on to capture its ninth state title in 11 years.

This year’s Bellevue team opened the season with a 31-21 win over Oaks Christian (Westlake Village, Calif.), a preseason top 10 team from California. The Wolverines then took on perennial Class 4A state powerhouse Skyline (Sammamish, Wash.) and posted a 31-17 win.

Bellevue’s Wing-T offense is executed as perfectly as any offense in the nation. That unit is spearheaded by senior quarterback Tyler Hasty along with junior running backs John Nguyen and Myles Jack.

Upset alerts so far this season: 6-5

Highlands (Fort Thomas, Ky.)

The Bluebirds are one of the highest scoring teams in the country and are closing in on a Kentucky record held by their 1998 team.

Highlands, which takes a 12-0 record against Covington Catholic (Park Hills, Ky.) into Friday’s third round of the Class 4A state playoffs, has scored 706 points for a sparkling 58.8 per game point average. In comparison, the 1998 Bluebirds' team scored a state record 801 points in 15 games.

The offense is led by 6-5, 235-pound quarterback Patrick Towles, a University of Kentucky recruit and participant in last summer’s Elite 11 camp as shown on ESPN.

With Towles at the helm, Highlands has scored more than 60 points in each of its past three games, and is now ranked No. 20 in the power-packed Southeast Region rankings. That region includes Florida, Georgia and the other Southeast Conference states plus North Carolina. The first 18 teams in that region are in the FAB 50.

In previous seasons, Kentucky teams were ranked in the Midwest Region and if that were true this season the Bluebirds would definitely be in the top 10. Still, a strong finish could earn Highlands a fifth straight state title, 21st overall playoff title and a spot in the final FAB 50.

Get Familiar: Antonio Conner

October, 24, 2011
South Panola (Batesville, Miss.) has established itself as one of nation’s elite football programs over the past decade. Last year, the Tigers won their seventh state title since 2003 and state-record ninth overall with their 28-7 win over Meridian (Meridian, Miss.) to finish the year No. 2 in POWERADE FAB 50 ESPNHS Team Rankings.

Tigers coach Lance Pogue has seen plenty of talent come through the program in his five years at the helm, but he’s only had one freshman who was talented enough to crack his starting lineup. That player was Antonio Conner, who started at free safety during South Panola’s run to the Class 6A state title in 2009.

“He had some growing pains, but once he started going, you couldn’t tell he was a freshman out there,” says Pogue.

Conner was even better last season, as he snagged All-State honors after tallying 89 tackles, four interceptions, 410 rushing yards and six touchdowns. He also picked off two passes in the state title game.

This year, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound ESPNU 150 Watch List member has been asked to do even more for the Tigers, who suffered through an uncharacteristic slow start and dropped out of the POWERADE FAB 50 in Week 3 as a young roster got acclimated to varsity play.

But South Panola is on a bit of a roll right now having won three straight and four of its last five. This past weekend, the Tigers rolled past Southaven (Southaven, Miss.), 44-21, as Conner rushed for 332 yards and five touchdowns on 34 carries.

Conner has lined up at quarterback, running back and safety this season, but it’s safety where he prefers to play in college. The Troy Polamalu fan is being recruited by the likes of Ole Miss, Alabama, Mississippi State, Oregon and Tennessee.

“What sets him apart is he has no fear,” says Pogue. “He’s a guy who’s always looking for contact.”

So before you go over the middle against the Tigers, we suggest you Get Familiar with their hard-hitting safety.

Get Familiar: Alec Morris

October, 3, 2011
xTom Hauck/ESPNHSAllen (Texas) QB Alec Morris has gone from a player without any offers to an Alabama commitment in a matter of months.

Alec Morris was enjoying a meal with his buddies this spring at In-N-Out Burger when an unfamiliar number popped up on his cell. Morris decided to pick it up anyway and he’s glad he did — it was Wake Forest calling to offer him a football scholarship.

It was the first offer for Morris, who entered the spring as a relative unknown among the nation’s top quarterbacks. But after strong performances at camps and 7-on-7 tournaments, the Allen (Allen, Texas) senior signal-caller started to receive interest from BCS programs. First it was Wake, where he committed in July. Then came an offer from North Texas. And a couple of weeks after pledging to Wake, he received the big one — Alabama.

Morris, who wears No. 2 because of Atlanta Falcons star QB Matt Ryan, eventually switched his commitment to the Crimson Tide just a few weeks before the start of his senior season. Now, the 6-foot-4, 235-pounder is enjoying a terrific year for the Eagles. Through five games, he’s thrown for 1,357 yards and 19 touchdowns while leading Allen to the No. 3 spot in this week’s POWERADE FAB 50 ESPNHS Team Rankings.

Rated the nation’s No. 45 quarterback by ESPNU, Morris will lead Allen against Plano East (Plano, Texas) this Thursday at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.

So what should viewers expect from this star signal-caller? It’s time to Get Familiar with Alex Morris.

Get Familiar: Robert Nkemdiche

September, 19, 2011
Robert NkemdicheRyan Gibson/ESPNHSGrayson (Ga.) junior Robert Nkemdiche might be the nation's top football player
Robert Nkemdiche certainly passes the eyeball test.

At 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, he looks more like Julius Peppers than a high school student. The Grayson (Loganville, Ga.) defensive end plays like Peppers, too.

With his size, strength (he benches 340 pounds, squats 500 and power cleans 340) and speed (4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash), Nkemdiche (pronounced kim-DEECH-ee) can do pretty much anything he wants against offensive linemen. Last year, he wreaked havoc in the trenches to the tune of 58 tackles, 23 tackles for loss and 18 sacks.

This season, he’s faced a variety of game plans designed to prevent him from crushing the quarterback. Nevertheless, he’s made a huge impact for Grayson, which is 4-0 and ranked No. 16 in the POWERADE FAB 50 ESPNHS Team Rankings.

Nkemdiche has also seen time at running back this season and ran for the game-winning touchdown in the Rams’ season-opening win over Kell (Marietta, Ga.).

Oh, by the way, Nkemdiche is only a junior. And the superb skills he’s shown at such a young age is why he’s arguably the top player in the country, regardless of class.

Not surprisingly, a number of the nation’s top college teams have taken notice. Nkemdiche is considering the likes of Mississippi (where his brother Denzel is a freshman defensive back), Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Miami, Florida, Florida State and Oregon, but he’s yet to narrow down his extensive list of offers.

Right now, he’s more focused on leading Grayson to a state title and is excited about the possibility of his mom, Beverly, watching one of his games this year. Beverly is a legislator in Nigeria and rarely has the opportunity to come home and watch her talented son play.

So what makes this man-child tick? It’s time to Get Familiar with Robert Nkemdiche.
