The corona virus pandemic has put a full stop to college recruiting in the nation. Luckily for Isaiah Rogers, he is ahead of the curve.

Before the world changed, the Academy Park junior garnered a ton of attention from college coaches. One of the best football prospects in Delaware County, Rogers has been racking up Division I offers for months now.

“It’s exciting,” Rogers said in a phone interview. “It’s great going to all these different colleges and touring the campuses.”

In the past week, Rogers reports he picked up offers from Colorado and Old Dominion. In total, he has offers from nine Division 1 programs: Akron, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Colorado, Kent State, Massachusetts, Old Dominion, Toledo and Western Kentucky.

Rogers doesn’t want to rush his decision. By the time he begins his senior year, it’s likely he will have reached double digits in scholarship offers.

The All-Delco and all-state defensive tackle is appreciative of every college that has offered him or simply reached out and shown some level of interest. Rogers has showcased his talents at many camps, and earned the defensive lineman MVP award at a camp hosted by All-State Preps High School Football and 247sports.com in February.

Dennis Lux named Interboro football coach, replacing mentor Steve Lennox

March 28, 2020

By Matt DeGeorge

Dennis Lux has been a part of the Interboro community for as long as he can remember. Growing up within walking distance of the high school and South Avenue Athletic Complex can do that.

So when Lux was given a chance to apply for the Bucs’ head football coaching job, there was never a doubt that he was going to do everything he could to make that dream a reality.

Lux was named the head coach of the Bucs, the school’s athletic department announced Friday. The move is pending board approval.

“I always wanted to be a Buc, got to play quarterback there,” Lux said by phone. “The community means so much to me. I want to give back to them because they’ve given me so much, given me the opportunity to be where I’m at today.”

Lux graduated from Interboro in 2005. He also played baseball and basketball for the Bucs, and capped his career on the gridiron with a 33-0 Thanksgiving Day mauling of rival Ridley. He is a contemporary of Sean Wasson, the 2004 Daily Times Football Player of the Year, who will serve as defensive coordinator.

Several of Delaware County’s best football talents made their college decisions official on the second National Signing Day of the 2019-20 school year.

Chester High made the biggest splash as five players from its senior class signed with Division II programs in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC).

The Langley twins, Malik and Malachi, will play at Bloomsburg University next fall. The multi-purpose athletes were two of the best playmakers in Delaware County last fall and earned All-Delco recognition for their exploits as wide receivers.

Four-year starter and All-Delco defensive back Rafiqe Hilliard is heading to California University of Pa. He led the best defensive secondary in the county with 45 tackles and five interceptions.

Chester is also sending defensive stars Tamir Reese and Hakeem Bacon to the next level. Reese is going to East Stroudsburg, while Reese will join the Langley boys at Bloomsburg.

In the Catholic League, Bonner-Prendergast’s Charles Ingram and Oscar Uduma are heading to Indiana University of Pennsylvania and West Chester, respectively.

Both were standout defensive performers for a Friars team that enjoyed its first winning season since 2014. Uduma was first team All-Delco as a defensive end.

“At Monsignor Bonner, (I have) been through some rough seasons, but that didn’t stop my loyalty or dedication, it only made me stronger,” Ingram posted on Twitter. “After freshman year I started to become more serious about my football career and setting goals for myself.”

Over in the Central League, All-Delco offensive lineman Lance Schwartz signed his NLI with the University of Delaware.

“Thank you to everyone that has helped put me in this position,” Schwartz announced on Twitter last week.

Archbishop Wood may be forced to play up from 5A to 6A

A new PIAA rule may affect as many as eight successful football programs. It’s called the “Success Factor” and over a two-year cycle, schools are now ranked on a points system, based on state tournament success.

All schools will have their success in post-regular season rated by the following scale: one point for participation in an entry level inter-district championship contest, two points for participation in a quarter-final inter-district contest, three points for participation in a semi-final inter-district contest, and four points for participation in a final inter-district contest.

Schools will have to reclassify up a class if they reach six points in two years. The PIAA identified the following eight schools as teams that have met the points requirement (potential new class in parentheses): Farrell (2A), Lackawanna Trail (2A), Southern Columbia (3A), Wilmington (3A), Aliquippa (4A), Cathedral Prep (5A), Imhotep Charter (5A), and Archbishop Wood (6A).

The other requirement for reclassification is “Transfers.” In football, schools must have what the PIAA considers to be be three transfer athletes to be eligible to reclassify. The PIAA reduced that number from five to three in October. These eight schools met the “Success Factor” requirement and have been identified as potentially reaching the “Transfers” requirement as well, according to the PIAA, though many plan to appeal based on the arbitrary transfer policy.

Final decisions will be made at the PIAA’s board meeting in January.

To read and learn more about the PIAA’s new “Success Factor” and “Transfers” policies, see the PIAA’s Competition Classification Formula.
