Three local stars headline ESPNHS Underclass All-American team
By Christopher Parish
Three players from Pennsylvania earned spots on the ESPNHS Underclass Football All-American team this morning.
Cedar Cliff junior Adam Breneman made the team as a tight end. According to the list...
"This big target (6-5, 225) caught 72 passes for 1,120 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. He's got offers from the likes of Stanford, Notre Dame, Miami, Alabama, Florida State, Michigan and South Carolina."
North Allegheny junior Patrick Kugler, who also earned a spot on the ESPNHS All-American team as a third-teamer, made the list as an underclassman. From the list...
"Kugler definitely has the bloodlines to succeed in the trenches, as his father, Sean, is the offensive line coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Patrick's play this season was key to North Allegheny reaching the Class AAAA state semifinals and being ranked among the nation's top teams."
Central Valley junior Robert Foster made the squad as a kick returner. Foster is also a wide receiver and defensive back and made the ESPNHS Pennsylvania Preseason All-State team as a defensive standout earlier this season. From the list...
"One of the nation's top receivers in the Class of 2013, Foster caught 37 passes for 584 yards and 12 touchdowns. But he was especially dangerous on returns -- his 70-yard kickoff return set up the game-winning touchdown against Hopewell (Aliquippa, Pa.) on ESPNU."
