PSFCA Announces Hot 100 Class of 2017

April 16, 2016 — The Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association (PSFCA) in conjunction with the Big 33 Classic, has released its annual listing of top high school football prospects for the class of 2017. This list of 105 student athletes who are rising seniors from across the state, compiled for the sixth straight year, represents a cooperative effort on the part of representatives from PSFCA — district directors, coaches and other functions of the association. It is the only list of its kind to be compiled exclusively by high school coaches.

“This year’s list reflects balance in every position, reinforcing that Pennsylvania consistently turns out quality student athletes who are solid college prospects,” said PSFCA member and Philadelphia area coach Mark Schmidt. “We look forward to seeing them excel both on and off the field in the coming year.”
