Pottsgrove OL Madison O’Connor attracts D-1 attention

Written by: on Sunday, May 22nd, 2011. Follow Josh Funk on Twitter.


The Pottsgrove Falcons have enjoyed quite a run these last five years, posting a 54-12 overall record (.818) and reaching a pair of District 1 AAA championship games.  One of the new guys to the maroon and white’s recent run is OL Madison O’Connor, a rising junior-to-be helping to flatten opposing defenses for a lethal Falcon rushing offense.

O’Connor, a 6’6, 303-pound behemoth in the trenches for Pottsgrove, has attracted interest, but no verbal scholarship offers, from six Division-1 programs, according to national recruiting services and  Intersted parties include Boston College, Penn State, Pitt, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

#76 was part of a Falcon offensive line that helped pave the way for one of the AAA classification’s top rushing offensive attacks – as a team as a whole, Pottsgrove’s 2010 team ran for 4,004 yards and 62 touchdowns on 497 carries.  O’Connor and the Pottsgrove trenchmen opened lanes for an offensive arsenal which averaged 333.7 rushing yards and 39 points per game, producing at least a pair of 1,000-yard rushers for the third consecutive season.

Pottsgrove finished 10-3 overall in 2010, reaching the District 1 AAA championship game for the second consecutive season, this time opposite Strath Haven.  The Panthers defeated the defending D1 AAA champion Falcons, 42-28.
