Demanding 2018 Schedule for ECP
Dick Bell has been working overtime to make sure East Coast Prep returns to action in 2018 with the most demanding prep schedule in the country. Starting with its first season, Dick has always insisted that ECP play the toughest schedule possible. It is one of the primary reasons why ECP has had great success at placing its players at upper division colleges. College coaches take a good look at the schedule a school plays. The tougher the competition, the greater the chances a prospect will succeed on the collegiate level. College coaches want players who have been tested.
The 2018 schedule includes games with 4 Division 1 JV programs. Army, Princeton, Cornell and Bryant. This gives our players the opportunity to play in Division 1 Stadiums against Division 1 players. It also gives our players the ability to generate video that will be well respected by Colleges recruiting them. Just overall a great situation.(Click here to see the full schedule.)
The schedule also includes 4 additional very difficult and well thought of opponents within
the football community.
-Army Prep has won 88 percent of its games during the last six seasons and many of its players have gone on to start for the current Army team that defeated Navy for the second year in a row, and is ranked among the best in the history of Army football.
-Fork Union Military is another top level opponent. Coming off a 9-1 season, it has produced two Heisman Trophy winners (Vinny Testaverde and Eddie George) in the past.
ECP will also be playing two traditional rivals in Hudson Valley (NY) and Valley Forge Military (where future NFL Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald played). And let's not underestimate the ability and skill of the junior college teams on the schedule. They're packed with experience and often have 100 players on their rosters.
Opportunity knocks, as the saying goes. And this years schedule will generate tremendous opportunities for the prospects who decide to come to ECP. The prospects who come to ECP will find an environment that will challenge them more than they've ever been challenged in their lives, but, if they're willing to work hard, it will also give them the opportunity to take the next step in their development with confidence and ability.
We are looking forward to this fall and another highly successful season capped off with the placement of our players to top schools nationwide, joining ECP alumni that have preceded them. At East Coast Prep we measure our success not only by wins and losses but more importantly by the successful placement of our players!!
