Albert Pontrelli

Pos: LB Ι Ht/Wt: 6’3, 205 Ι High School: Lemont Ι Position Rank: 6

Albert Pontrelli of Lemont High School is one of the state's top Linebacker prospects. He is a fearless pass rusher off the edge, who plays with a high motor. On film, he doesn't take plays off & consistently chases down runs from the backside. For a 6’3 guy, he’s exceptionally quick off the edge and very flexible as a pass rusher. Pontrelli always seems to be around the football and is never short on making game-changing plays. He features a powerful punch that he uses to get extension on offensive lineman and rip off to make a tackle in the run game. Pontrelli is a natural in Lemont’s 3-4 scheme as a stand-up outside linebacker, and that’s exactly where I predict he’ll play at the next level. 

 

In-Depth:

Last season was a good one for Pontrelli, earning second-team All-State Honors and first-team All-conference honors. He felt he not only grew last season on the field but off of it as a leader as well.
