Coach Big Pete Scouting Reports
PLAYER YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Effingham 3 Class of 2018
Noah Spencer, Terrence Hill, Drew Niebrugge
THREE PLAYERS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
Noah Spencer 6'3 230 ER/LB/DE
56 Tackles 9 Sacks
One of the top Edge Rushers in the state of Illinois, with a stat of 9 sacks last season. Spencer thrilled me at the Lemming showcase with ability to shift and athleticism. Spencer is a huge name to watch this summer. Looks to be a hybrid defender in college with the ability to 4 man front and or 4 backer row.
Terrence Hill 5'9 176 RB/ATH
289 Carries 1600 Yards 18 TDS
One of the better running backs in Illinois again just like Spencer huge amount of athleticism. Hits the gap hard and just makes defenders miss, great ability when the zone is open for him. Only RB that I know from Illinois that can fit the Power, Spread, Pistol, Option run scheme.
Drew Niebrugge 6'3 280 OG
High Motor Interior Lineman who dominates off the line as soon as the ball is snapped. Hard nosed hog who needs to be in the spotlight for one of the best OL in Illinois. Expecting a huge summer from this kid, watch out for Mr. Niebrugge
Sam Barkalow 6'6 220 ATH
Class of 2018
Barkalow's height and athletic ability are unseen at any level in the state of Illinois. Being from a tiny 1a school of Forreston, it amazes college coaches about this small school talent. His ability to catch, block, and play outside linebacker for the cardinals is what makes him so special as a athlete. Now what can he be tight end, defensive end, or be moved to the offensive line in college. See great defensive abilities in this young man's game but id think he would make a great tight end in a power scheme. Some coaches would say, if he gained muscle he could be a great run and shoot offensive tackle. Time will tell about this great player but i'm sitting on the edge of my seat to see what will happen.
