We continue our Hidden Gems series here at Prep Redzone and we are entering one of the most historic areas as far as football goes, Stark County. There is plenty of D1 FBS and FCS talent in this area. Some with FBS and FCS offers some without. This list will contain players with the talent and not the offers. Here is the top hidden gems in stark county coming up this season.


6. Starting off the list we have Braidyn Hartsoe out of Alliance High School. Braidyn (c/o 2021) is a 6’0 185lb ATH that plays FS and QB. Braidyn is super talented and flashes when you watch him on the field. He is super impressive on the defensive end making big tackles and causing turnovers and on offense he has the arm to make the throws and the legs to evade defenders. I expect Braidyn to have a huge senior campaign, possibly seeing time at wideout on the offensive side and limited time at QB with someone who has D1 offers ahead of him taking the bulk of the snaps. Alliance opens the season at home vs Uniontown Lake on August 28th with a 7pm kickoff. Check out
