Del-Val Players to Watch in 2019

Del-Val Players to Watch in 2019

Barry Brown
Quarterback | Academy Park

The 6-foot-3, 165-pound senior has worked on becoming a dual threat for the Knights. A gifted athlete who could lead the Knights back to the top in the Del Val.

Utensee Nankay
Defensive Lineman | Academy Park

Despite being undersized (5-8, 180) Nankay is a big time player. Last year he registered 62 tackles, including 19 TFLs.

Malik Langley
Athlete | Chester

An outstanding athlete like his brother Malachi, Malik carries the energy of a player a team can look to. A contributor since his sophomore season, how the Clippers get him the ball (as a receiver, running back or gadget packages) will help define their season.

Rafiq Hilliard
Defensive Back | Chester

The Chester secondary, while experienced, is undersized. But they hope to make up for it with tenacity on the ball, and Hilliard is the tone-setter in that regard. He tied for the team lead with three interceptions (with Key’onn Goodman) and was third in solo tackles with 50.

Nate Decenzi
Quarterback | Chichester

The senior quarterback threw for more than 1,800 yards as a junior and has made the adjustment to an offense that will feature Wing-T as well as spread formation principles.

Antonio Perez
Defensive Back | Chichester

As a junior, he made three interceptions against Glen Mills in a Del Val League contest in which Chichester lost its shutout — and the game — on a late touchdown on which Perez thought he was taken out by a block in the back.

Mike Billups
Offensive Line | Interboro

At a recent practice, the Bucs’ starting offense dialed up a running play to the right, and it was curtains for an unsuspecting defender when Billups deftly swung out and launched him a few feet into the air to open a cavernous hole for the back to run through. Expect plenty of that this year. The 280-pounder is tailor-made for Interboro’s power run offense.

Vinnie Kalodner
Linebacker | Interboro

Kalodner took a year off from football as a sophomore, so he learned a ton on the fly last year. Some of those lessons came in tougher ways than others, but all of them helped mold him into a player who could wreak havoc on offensive gameplans.

Elijah Gleplay
Running Back | Penn Wood

Gleplay holds the key to offensive balance, to keep safeties and linebackers honest. He did it last year when the focus was on the passing game. it’ll be more imperative this season to take pressure of Johnson.

Christian Suber
Lineman | Penn Wood

The Patriots don’t have a ton of size on the lines, but Suber (6-0, 210) can make up for that with his outside speed. The Patriots’ schedule will include three league foes plus Springfield with new QBs this season, and Suber’s harassment off the edge will be huge in establishing the defense.
