I got the pleasure of going to Legacy's 7 on 7 practice on January 23rd. I spent time talking with the 2023's that were in attendance as they are in the middle of their high school careers. Here are the Offensive 2023's in the Legacy program.


Marcus Brown (24’ QB) Brother Rice - 3.6 GPA

Brown is going to be an up and coming QB for Brother Rice that is already turning heads with his ability. Of course, he's young and still has room to grow/develop his craft, he also already exhibits QB skills that you typically won't see until the player is a Junior. Brown has a high ceiling and untapped potential just waiting to blossom.

Payton Young (23' RB/S) Merriville (IN) - 3.0 GPA

Young can catch coming out of the backfield where he plants his foot to get upfield and uses his quick acceleration to blow by defenders for a huge gain. He's an N/S runner who has solid jump cuts and explodes through the running lanes. Young plays at his own speed, keep an eye on this young man as he will turn heads left
