Western PA has a good core of Linebackers that look to fit an FCS mold at the next level. Here are guys to keep an eye on:
Drew HarperDrewHarper6'0" | LBAvonworth | 2021StatePA - Avonworth - 6’0  - 185  - LB:   Good frame but slight LB. Slippery when getting off blocks. Not overly physical but gets the job done and will hit you. Okay in pass coverage, doesn’t fill the gap super fast but hes a solid tackler. Boundary OLB most likely
Max MatolcsyMaxMatolcsy6'1" | LBPlum | 2021StatePA -   Plum - 6’1 - 210 - OLB:    Tough kid, good tackler, and blitzes well. Change of direction is below average. Speed is good and makes plays when the ball is in his hands. Pass coverage is a question. Good in run support and blitzing
Luke BanburyLukeBanbury6'2" | LBUpper St Clair | 2021StatePA - Upper St Clair - 6’2 - 210 - LB:    Hard hitting, run stuffing LB. Will take  on a block and defeat it. Always around the ball. Makes ball carriers pay for running near him. he is a little stiff, probably an inside backer at worst at the next level. Great frame, tough, gritty kid
