All-State Stock Watch celebrates the week of the quarterback

October, 12, 2011
Each week, we’ll take an in-depth look at our All-State preseason football team and let you know how a few of those athletes are faring as the season progresses. We'll highlight a blue-chipper (a first-team player), an OTP (other top player) and an under-the-radar pick (someone who didn't make the squad but is making a case to be on the team).

This week, it's all about the quarterbacks as one breaks a record, one leads his team to new heights and one brings his team to its first win.

Blue Chip: Brendan Nosovtich, Allentown Central Catholic, QB

Lost in the shuffle of Allentown C.C.'s 31-30 loss to Nazareth was an impressive stat for Nosovitch in what's been a long line of impressive stats this season. Nosovitch, a South Carolina recruit, broke the District 11 record for career yardage with his 275-yard output. The previous record was 9,450 yards of combined offense, held by former Wilson QB D.J. Lenehan.

OTP: Perry Hills, Pittsburgh Central Catholic, QB

There's a lot of reasons why Pittsburgh C.C. has been successful this season. But one of the biggest reasons has been the steady play under center from Hills, a Maryland recruit. This week was just another solid effort — 186 yards on 6-of-8 passing, helping the team earn a 60-6 win over Plum. But more impressive than the final margin of victory is that the team has moved up to No. 12 in the POWERADE FAB 50.

Under the Radar: Jake Sheller, West Chester East, QB

With his team desperately needing its first win of the season, Sheller came through in a big way. The senior threw for 408 yards and four touchdown passes to help the Vikings earn a 37-21 win over Avon Grove. The team has struggled defensively, but Sheller has led the way on offense; this was his second 400+ yard passing effort in a row.

Got Game: Brendan Nosovitch

August, 30, 2011
Name: Brendan Nosovitch
School: Allentown C.C.
Sport: Football

Got Game: Throw for more than 3,000 yards and 43 touchdowns and the colleges are sure to line up. Sure enough, Nosovitch had suitors from Clemson, Georgia Tech, Maryland, South Carolina and Virginia, among others. But the senior signal-caller put the debate to rest early, committing to South Carolina in July. Nosovitch also ran for more than 1,600 yards and found the end zone 25 times on the ground last season. He was also named the Gatorade State Player of the Year in Pennsylvania last fall. Check back to this blog for frequent progress of Nosovitch as he is expected to make a run at some passing records this season.
