D1 (FBS & FCS) Prospects: 
Quintin Stephens: QB/ DB —Quintin can contribute at the quarterback position at the collegiate level, depending on what you like to see in a QB. Quintin could also play defensive back in college. He is a playmaker wherever he ends up.  You will be able to see that in his film. He gets out of situations in the pocket and is able to find open receivers or run the football. As an individual he exemplifies the characteristics of a complete student athlete; he is responsible, intelligent, cares about his teammates and believes in our program.  He is able to communicate effectively with the coaching staff and demonstrates initiative related to becoming a better student-athlete.

Chad Parton: DB / Slot Receiver — Chad can play either side of the ball at the next level. – Great competitor, he finds a way to win.  In my opinion, he is an excellent athlete and has the potential to fill many different roles in a program.  As an individual, Chad is also a complete student-athlete.  He performs well in the classroom and demonstrates leadership skills within our program.  He takes initiative in our team activities and works to build relationships with his teammates.

Key Stats: 
Quintin Stephens-  1,879 yards passing, 19 TDs, 280 yds rushing, 4.5 yards per carry, 2 TD’s

Chad Parton- 1,685 total yards, 872 yards receiving, 57 Receptions, 259 yards rushing, 4.0 yards per carry, 17 TDs, 5 Interceptions

2020 Outlook

Offense: Offensively, the Falcons will rely on Quintin Stephens and Chad Parton’s experience and production in their senior year.  The Falcons return an experienced offensive line and look to build around that experience.  A newcomer looking to contribute is Gio Hines, a running back who moved into the district from North Carolina. Additionally, recruiting the hallways has been effective in getting Hunter Bleam and Chase Fenstermaker to join the Falcons offensive attack.  Rising Sophomores Nick Beck, and Josh Brooks are having a productive summer and will continue to develop in the Falcon program.  

Defense: Defensively, the Falcons will rely again on returning defensive linemen with experience to solidify the defensive front.  A key loss is Kyle Killiri (Slippery Rock University), who was a top tackler in Pennsylvania last season.  The linebacker corps returns Ben Krauss with experience, so pre-season camp will determine the other contributing linebackers.  At the back end, the Falcons feature athletes in Chad Parton, Quintin Stephens, and Gio Hines.  

Special Team: Special Teams will be an area the Falcons need to fill a large gap in graduating Kicker Aaron Kahn, who will be continuing his football career at Susquehanna University.
