Once Again in 2023, St. Joe’s Prep Football’s Influence Is Felt at Every Level.
It’s really hard to execute football dominance year over year.
Unless of course you are historic St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia.
Last Saturday, a last minute interception by Michigan sealed the win but could not diminish another outstanding performance by one of college football’s best wide receivers in Marvin Harrison Jr. and quarterback Kyle McCord. Earlier in the 4th quarter, McCord found Harrison for a 14-year score.
Harrison finished with 118 yards and a touchdown and 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns, and McCord finished with two touchdowns and 272 yards in the air completing him with over 3,100 yards and 24 touchdowns.
Both went to The Prep.
On Sunday afternoon, on the rain soaked tundra of Lincoln Financial Field during the third quarter, D’Andre Swift (another prominent Prep graduate) is beginning to enforce his will on the Bills defense for over 80 yards rushing.
If you’ve played against the Clemson Tigers this season, you may have been hit by linebacker Jeremiah Trotter Jr. Yup, the Axe Man has a son and he’s really good. He’s also a St. Joe’s Prep graduate too. Trotter would make a great addition to the Eagles (move over Shaquille Leonard.)
Last month after a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Swift and Zaccheaus visited their alma mater and the St. Joe’s Prep Football Team. NFL Championship caliber talent spending time with the current team. It doesn’t get any better.
Swift and Zaccheaus are joining St. Joe’s graduates making an impact on professional and collegiate teams across the country for a program with seven 6A PIAA State Championships in recent Pennsylvania High School Football dominance.
Next week – let’s make it eight.
