Defensive Tackle Armani Mette Chooses Franklin Pierce
Armani definitely has the ability to play at the D1 level, but has chosen to attend D2 school Franklin Pierce, where he will undoubtedly excel. Opponents will have a very difficult time dealing with Armani’s strength and mobility.
“Franklin Pierce probably signed a 4 year starter as they begin play next year! Armani played great after suffering an early season injury and earned multiple offers before choosing Franklin Pierce” --Dick Bell
ECP Announces 2019 Schedule
Since its first season, ECP has made strength of schedule a linchpin in its highly successful program. With four D-1 schools on it's ten game schedule, this year is no exception. College coaches, always on the lookout for talent, judge potential players by how challenging their competition is. ECP's schedule is as challenging as it gets. It is the ultimate proving ground for players seeking to reach the next level. And remember: the more difficult the schedule, the more opportunities available for ECP's players to demonstrate their skills.
Once again Fork Union Military is on the schedule. Coming off an undefeated season, they've won 19 out of their last 20 games. When it comes to competitive challenges, they are the gold standard. (They've produced two Heisman Trophy winners in Vinnie Testaverde and Eddie George.)
Last year's game was a classic battle that went down to the wire. The game, played at Towson University in Baltimore with many college scouts in attendance, saw Fork Union squeak by 28-26 in the final minute of play. This years game should be just as exciting. Click here to see the schedule
ECP Wide Receiver Mark Walker Earns Appointment to Naval Academy
As well as sending its players to some of the strongest and most competitive football conferences in the country, ECP has also sent players to conferences with a high academic standing, such as the Ivy League and the Patriot League. Mark Walker, with his appointment to the prestigious US Naval Academy, becomes the first ECP player to attend one of our nation's service academies.
Mark, who came to ECP from perennial powerhouse St. Peters Prep in New Jersey, had an outstanding year, and, with his size and 4.52 forty speed, was ECP's best receiver. Combine Mark's natural ability with his extraordinary work ethic and intelligence and you have the prototype of the kind of player the Naval Academy seeks when filling its roster.
“I am so proud of Mark, he worked hard in all phases both on and off the field, played great, has a great future” ---Dick Bell
Defensive Back Isaiah Greene to Play for FBS D1 Rutgers
Isaiah will be taking a tremendous amount of talent with him when he arrives on the Rutgers campus, as well as solid academic credentials. He has the ideal profile for a defensive back, with a 40 time that can only be considered blazing. At Rutgers he will be facing some of the top college football programs in the country, but he has the potential to go even higher. The NFL is definitely a possible landing spot.
“Isaiah is just starting to develop, Rutgers may have gotten a diamond in the rough” –Dick Bell
ECP Offensive Tackle Kevin Singer Heads for FCS D-1 Albany
Kevin, who came to us from Colorado where he was an all state selection in high school, turned down several offers from 1-AA colleges in order to take advantage of the added seasoning ECP would offer him. At 6’6” and the potential to reach 300 lbs., he has the quickness to perform at a very high level in college. He also has solid academic credentials to go along with his football ability.
“Kevin was our best offensive lineman and earned multiple offers at the D1 level. He deserved them!!” --Dick Bell

ECP Linebacker Michael Oppong Will Play for Bryant
Michael impressed college scouts well enough to earn a D-1 offer from Bryant. Having played wide receiver in high school, he made the transition to linebacker by working hard and showing a strong willingness to learn. Among linebackers, his sub 4.6 40 time is outstanding. His solid work ethic has allowed him to improve day by day.
“Michael came to us as an offensive player, adjusted to defense and got a D1scholarship, good job” --Dick Bell
