In addition to Geiss, the freshman/sophomore winner was Malvern Prep’s Alex Hornibrook and the middle school winner was Taylor Lentz from Warwick, Pa.

Some of the notable names at the camp where, Brandon Bossard of Methacton, Kyle Lauletta of Downingtown East, Brennan Scott of Manheim Township, Andrew Ford of Penn Manor and Penn State commit Christian Hackenberg of Fork Union Military Academy among others.

Hackenberg who was born in Tamaqua grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania before moving to Virginia. Both Rivals and Scout have him listed as the number one ranked quarterback in the nation. He is now preparing for the Elite 11 camp in California.

Hackenberg saved his arm and didn’t participate in the afternoon session.

Helping out the camp was Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne.

Henne talked to the players about some of the obstacles they may face when heading to college. “The biggest obstacle is to balance school and football. But at the same time social media and maturing is important in today’s world.”

Henne talked about college life. “One of the hardest things is dealing with being away from your family and parents. You don’t really have a guardian out there to say what is right or wrong”, said Henne. “You’re off on your own and either you go the right way or the wrong way and the biggest thing is to develop yourself around the right people that do the right things at the same time and to stay out of trouble.”

This was the second year of the Elite 25 camp and Jim Cantafio is looking forward to next season.
