This past season, several 2023 prospects were valuable contributors for their teams. Here is a profile of some players that had outstanding SOPH seasons. Their early trajectory projects them as college prospects. This will be a continuing series, as Prep Redzone looks forward to evaluating and reporting on 2023 football players from the Hoosier State.

DL: Joshua Mickens, Lawrence Central HS, 6'4, 225

Joshua is a member of a deep, talented group of underclassmen for Head Coach Will Patterson and Lawrence Central. Joshua has been a member of the varsity basketball team during his first two years of HS. He has been on a tear recently, including scoring 20 points against a talented Ben Davis front court. This prospect has also already earned two letters in football. Watching his SOPH football tape, there really isn't much Joshua can't do. He looks every bit the part of a high-level defensive end. On film, you will notice him making sack/strips, and supporting the run against premier programs like Carmel, Warren Central and Lawrence North. This prospect possesses a ton of upside, and from a football perspective-it is all in front of him.

OL: Edward Hartig, Reitz Memorial HS, 6'6, 280
