Thing with Jesse was his vision. I swear he knew how the defense was gonna be lined up when he hit the hole. I remember in 99 he was going up the home sideline against P-O. There were 3 guys closing in he stopped cut left and they all ran each other over. 

This was exactly how Braden Fochtman ran. They seemed to find open space through any gap.

Instinctual- can't teach that.

With the lack of love for lineman, I will give you the best I have ever seen in the area, Terry Tate-Tyrone.  He had a Suh 2009 Big12 Championship game style performance against us.  He was an animal, strong, quick, smart, and played with outrageous leverage.  Rarely if ever was he blocked 1 on 1.  Hands down best lineman I have seen come out of the area.

Well I thought this was a running back topic. I was trying to stick to LHAC backs, I guess Tyrone isn't LHAC, but close enough.

Don't let this distract you from the the fact that in 1966, Al Bundy scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, Bubba "Spare Tire" Dixon.

Little bit of a thread revive but you must have never seen Domenick Bragalone play.  His game against BG in the state semi finals in 2014 was probably the best performance ive ever seen in a game the kid had over 300 rushing yards and 3 tds in a loss. I firmly believe that if south williamsport had beaten BG that Bragalone would have steamrolled Clairton by himself. The kid was that good

Actually, I did see Bragalone play that very game. He was tremendous, no doubt. He also carried the ball 42 times.

I thought Benbow's performance against Westmont was the more impressive of the two. I also saw Morgan of Woodland Hills rush for 300 yards in the snow against Altoona in the state semis one year and saw Eric Kasperowicz and LaVar Arrington play in high school. For one game, Benbow's remains my measuring stick.

Bill Benbow did play for Edinboro one year, but was limited as he was young and Edinboro was really good with many divison 1 transfers at the skill positions. In the spring, he got into trouble and left school. His brother Jim, if I remember, played D-line or linebacker for IUP, not O-line.

This thread takes me back... Benbow was one guy that while I was at JHS, I can look back on and say I was glad we didn't have to face (since that was the pre-LHAC days).

PCmor, great call back on Chris Morgan from Woody High. I saw a lot of him in his HS career. He was one of the few multi-year starters for them, Novak liked to (and had the great luxury of) going with a lot of seniors while he was coaching. Morgan had sprinter level speed. Had a real nice career at IUP too if I recall correctly.

I was at that game and I'll never forget the pre-game brouhaha.  The Polk players were in already in the locker room.  The Andrew Johnson players had just finished warmups, and were moving off the field to make room for the Polk pre-game Homecoming ceremony.  Bundy was in uniform, minus his helmet, escorting the Homecoming Queen.  Someone said "What's Dixon up to?"  I looked and Bubba Dixon was last in line, kinda hanging back, looking in Bundy's direction.     Bundy and the girl got announced and started to walk through some balloon arch or something.  Ol' Spare Tire sauntered right out to mid-field, did some kinda hip-twirl dance, and just as Bundy passed under the arch Ol' Spare Tire bent over to face the home crowd, dropped his pants about a third of the way down and waved his hairy **** at the crowd.  The crowd roared, Bundy was clueless, and if there hadn't been a 6-foot fence around the track, the Polk student section would have either mauled Dixon or carried him off as a hero, I'm still not sure.   
Bundy put on a show that night, alright, but I can tell you this: Bundy wasn't the natural that Benbow was.  Bundy was pure guts.

I believe #33 was Josh Stahl. Excellent player
