Devon Banaszak comes from the same family blood line as Scout Trout, when it comes to being a Pittsburgh Steeler. His Uncle, John Banaszak, played from 1975 to 1981 for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and just happened to be a team mate of my fathers in 1981. John got to help the Steelers win 3 Super Bowls and then got to play in the esteemed USFL for the Memphis Showboats with the likes of Reggie White. He now is the Head Coach at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh. Devon shows the same BRUTE strength that his uncle did, to say the least, as he is able to put up remarkable numbers in the weight room! Check his numbers out below! They are in green because these are HULK like numbers for a class of 2018 prospect, at ANY position.

When I was putting Devon's highlights together, you can see his amazing strength in the way he plays the game. His first play at Linebacker, you will see this young man's ability to STUFF the run in the hole and lays the Running Back flat on his back, with a perfect aggressive form tackle. The 3rd play of Devon's highlights, you are able to witness a JACK LAMBERT like tackle, in the way this young man aggressively seeks and destroys the running back. On special teams, Devon is a complete wrecking ball on kickoff team and with his 3.5 GPA, will be a instant contributor to any College football program. Coming down hill on the blitz, Devon is down right scary to block and once he starts to develop his finesse moves, shall prove to be unstoppable at the next level. A true Steel Curtain is built on players like Devon Banaszak! His run from the Fullback position reminded me of the Great FRANCO HARRIS, in the way he is able to create separation with a stiff arm and take it all the way to the house!
Justin Howard is an amazing talent at the Quarterback position, and had one of the best combines overall this year. With a strong wind at our athlete's back and a impeccable start in the 40 yard dash, I clocked Howard at a 4.3, 40 yard dash. I tested Howard and was highly impressed with the way he was able to square his shoulders and throw accurately on the run. Howard is an amazing dual-threat prospect and showed amazing timing and an extremely strong/accurate arm, that college coaches covet. When you look at the schools that are interested and Howard has visited, you will see he is an outstanding Student-Athlete this. When you watch this young man's escape ability in his junior film and they way he delivers the ball down field, you start to see a big time College Quarterback. Justin is only going to get better because he is a student of the game and a relentless hard worker. Justin and his Northview Academy team our primed for a amazing season with this stellar Student-Athlete at the helm! Best of luck this season and check out the list of school's that have been recruiting Justin!

Shaun Anderson is the definition of a game breaking skill position player and can be utilized in many ways at the next level. He has outstanding speed, and I really love the way Shaun gets up field and wastes no time hitting the hole with explosiveness. At any given moment, as seen in his footage, Shaun can take the ball all the way to the house with electrifying overall athleticism. Shaun's highlights show outstanding vision and the ability to find the cut-back lane and runs between the tackles very effectively. The amazing cut back at 2:17, shows how quickly this young man can stop on a dime and make a quick synaptic decision. As a defensive back, this young man shows great cover abilities and breaks to the ball extremely quickly. Shaun is not afraid to come up and make a tackle if need be, is a dynamic return man, and shows the ability to catch tough punts under the lights. You will also be able to see some very good power runs in his footage, where he is dragging defenders for extra yardage. Shaun is able to play the deep ball as a Defensive back very well and at 4:23, he makes a amazing pass break up, out of a taller receivers hands. His interception at around 5:00 minutes makes me wonder if this young man is also a top flight College DB! Shaun is in perfect position and is able to make a perfect "high-pointing" interception! As you will witness in the remainder of the footage, This young man is a WORK HORSE that can accumulate yards in a hurry! I cannot wait to utilize him in the screen game in our All-American Contest in Mobile,Alabama! Thanks for joining the Scout Trout Militia and best of luck this up and coming season!
A Storm is coming and he paints one nasty picture
Storm Painter is a extremely strong young man and knows how to use it on a football field. When you watch his highlights you see a young man who is easily able to get off of blocks, and once he locates the ball carrier, Storm is able to create THUNDEROUS collisions on the football field. At 6'3 and still growing, I attribute Storm's LIGHTNING reflexes to his success on the Hardwood. Storm has great hands and I believe he can also succeed highly as a Tight End, with his overall athleticism. Storm excels on special teams and is quick enough to block punts, which you will see at 56 seconds into his film. I love Storm's overall aggression and motor on the football field. He is relentless and never gives up on a play. Storm's agility for his size is quite impressive in his Junior highlights, and with his length, he will be a instant contributor to any College Program. Storm was able to attend the combine portion of my Ohio regional combine and put up very good numbers, while in a rush to make it to a big basketball event. Storm was invited to multiple Division One campuses and had a great showing at Samford and Miami of Ohio! I expect big things out of Storm this year as he creates a massive HURRICANE of success on the gridiron!
