Mark Everton is not a Dist 1 Interboro player. He is a 2014 transfer to Cardinal O’Hara High School working under coach Dan Algeo.

Dave, I wasn’t being sarcastic about not playing. I heard a rumor that he may not play because of the chance of injury with bigger things on the horizon at Duke.

Ah, got ya Dave. I think with Harvey graduating and Shurmer with a year under his belt in the offense, Herron may make a run at some Philly receiving records this year. Maybe a bit optimistic but the kid is a hell of a player.

@Jive. I have him listed as a Athlete.

Is Jimmy Herron from LaSalle not playing this year? With 48 catches for 734 yards and 12 TD’s in his junior year, I can’t figure why he was left off of this list both times.
