Ches-Mont Players to Watch in 2019
Receiver | Bishop Shanahan
Senior Garrett Glendenning is a three-year starter who blossomed a year ago and is expected to be the Eagles’ prime big-play threat once again.
Defensive End | Bishop Shanahan
Big and strong enough to play tackle on offense, Lenny Kresefski is also fast enough to be one of the most feared defensive ends in the Ches-Mont.
Wide Receiver | Coatesville
The senior Bryant is one of the most explosive offensive weapons in the state. He snagged 51 catches a year ago and average 19.4 yards per reception.
Safety | Coatesville
Hall is just 5-foot-6, but he is a ball-hawking safety on defense and a versatile back that will be featured more on offense.
Running Back | Downingtown East
Besides being a top flight linebacker, Uggla is a battering ram as a running back and as a blocker.
Defensive Back | Downingtown East
A three-year starter, Basilli is one of the best cover men in the Ches-Mont League.
Quarterback | Downingtown West
The Kansas State university bound Howard has a very strong arm and is the leader of the Whippet offense.
Defensive Lineman | Downingtown West
The 6-foot-2, 225 pound Cusack is a great run stuffer and he also can put heat on the opposing quarterback.
Running Back | Great Valley
The speedy senior back will be the primary ball carrier for the Patriots and was impressive in limited action last season.
Linebacker | Great Valley
The Patriot linebacker has good strength and speed and covers the field from sideline to sideline.
Quarterback | Kennett
An all-area lacrosse selection, Forte raised a bunch of eyebrows when he threw for 1,701 yards as a sophomore in his first-ever season as a quarterback.
Linebacker | Kennett
Kennett was the Ches-Mont’s number two defense in 2018 and inside linebacker Garrett Cox is the heart and soul of the unit
Athlete | Sun Valley
Thomas mostly played in the backfield last year, but he’s the kind of all-purpose threat that the Vanguards will look to get the ball to in various situations, either out in space from the slot or on handoffs.
Linebacker | Sun Valley
McLaughlin will have an expanded role on offense, too, but the 6-foot, 180-pounder has the size and closing speed to excel on the defensive side.
Running Back | Unionille
Head coach Pat Clark thinks running back/cornerback Schilling is the best all-around player in the Ches-Mont.
Defensive End | Unionville
Boyle, who also plays offensive tackle, is big and experienced, and headlines an anterior line that is a strength for Unionville.
Running Back | WC East
The Vikings senior is one of the best backs in District 1 and will be the primary worry of every opposing team’s defense.
Defensive Line | WC East
Lemmon-Kishi is a two-year starter who is very strong against the run, and will be a handful for opposing offensive linemen and backs.
Defensive End | WC Henderson
The 6-foot 5, 255-pound junior is very quick off the ball and will be a key to Henderson’s success at stopping opposing running games.
Running Back | WC Rustin
The Golden Knights senior is a very speedy back and he should thrive in Rustin’s Wing- T offense.
Linebacker | WC Rustin
Montgomery absolutely tortures opposing quarterbacks as his four sacks in 2018 shows and he is bigger and stronger coming into the 2019 season.
