EAST PETERSBURG – The SVS showcase Elite 25 Camp had some of the top quarterbacks and wide receivers Friday at Lanco Fieldhouse. One of the top players at the camp was 6-5, 228-pound tight end Adam Breneman who had to watch from the sidelines. “It was killing me that I couldn’t go out their and compete”, said Breneman.

Breneman, the number one ranked tight end in the nation according to tore his ACL in a non-contact drill before a 7-on-7 tournament last month.

His junior year he put up huge numbers for a tight end, catching the ball 72 times for 1,120 yards and 12 touchdowns.  He was named first team Class AAAA All-State.

He will miss his senior season at Cedar Cliff High. “I still will be the captain of the team,” said Breneman.

Breneman will take on a new role as a player-coach this season for Cedar Cliff. “Coach Cantafio has been teaching me the hand signals for the quarterbacks. I am going to help both the offense and defense and be at all the practices.”

He is scheduled to have surgery July 10th by Penn State doctor Wayne Sebastianelli. “I have been riding a stationary bike and walking on a treadmill,” said Breneman. “They wanted the swelling to come down before surgery.”

He plans to enroll into Penn State on January 5th and take part in spring practice and maybe the Blue-White game.

During his recruiting he had over 20 plus offers. We asked him, growing up in Pennsylvania were you always a Penn State fan? “I grew up a fan of Penn State,” said Breneman. But through the recruiting process I did the best I could at separating from being a fan and being a player. It can be a lot different. I needed to go to a place that was best for me, on or off the field.”
