A new 7v7 contender has emerged, coached by Coach Khaliq Coleman who leads the WR room at Franklin Regional HS. Coach K has done an incredible job developing Athletes In Training, a new 13U, 15U, 18U 7v7 club primarily based out of Pittsburgh. We have covered multiple AIT athletes before, but winning the PASWAG tourney has officially put this team on the map.
Talking to Coach K ourselves, here are the top performers according to AIT’s head coach. Other standout players are also listed below.

AIT TOP PERFORMERS 

Offensive MVP

Jahiem White Jahiem White 5'9" | RB William Penn (York) | 2023 State PA (RB) 2023

Watch out for the kid with the beanie! Jahiem White Jahiem White 5'9" | RB William Penn (York) | 2023 State PA is without a doubt has been one of my favorite players to watch this camp season. Before camp season started, I loved his tape at running back and wanted to see what his hands were like. Whether or not White has pass-catching ability was going to be a deciding factor as to who offers him and what opportunities may arise. White has done nothing but dominate all camp season and has shown off FCS-level pass-catching ability. The kids got unassuming size but has been seen on tape leaping with anyone, high-pointing the ball standing at a modest 5’9″. Jahiem had 6+ touchdown catches on Day 1 alone. His stock is through the roof.

Defensive MVP 

Mike Bentivegna (RB/FS) 2023

We have talked at naseam about White and teammate Mike Bentivegna on this site. It’s great to see both of them continue to trend in the right direction. It’s surprising to see this kid doesn’t have any offers yet. Athlete is the best way to describe Bentivegna, as he can contribute on both sides of the ball and shows quick change of direction ability and well as great range at safety. I actually think Bentivegna is special with pads on. His football IQ stands out with or without pads. We hope coaches along the east coast pounce on this prospect before it’s too late. We see a future FCS safety.

Overall MVP 

Jake Phillips Jake Phillips 6'2" | QB Hempfield Area | 2023 State PA (QB) 2023

Reading this stat line, there isn’t much else to say.

16 TDs, 0 INTs, four games. 3-0 with just one incompletion on Day One. Jake was comfortable and in command all tournament long. He was seen throwing with anticipation as well as placing throws where only his wideout can make a play on it. This sophomore is ahead of the curve and is due for a breakout junior season.

Best of the Rest 

Amari Mack | 5’11 175lbs | ATH | GCC | C/O 2023
Jermiah Johnson | 5’11 175lbs | DB | C/O 2022
Cruce Brookins | 6’1 175 | DB | Steel Valley | C/O 2023
Noah Dudik Noah Dudik 5'11" | WR Norwin | 2023 State PA | 6’0 160 | WR/DB | Norwin | C/O 2023
Many of the prospects listed above have been mentioned on our site previously. We want to shed some light on lesser-known names that are new to us! Brookins, Dudik, and Hines have been nothing short of dominant this camp season and will see a rise in their rankings.

Michal Scott | ATH | C/O 2025

An incoming freshman who is absolutely electric in the open field. He flaunts some of the best open-field acceleration I’ve seen amongst under-classmen. He’s hardly even considered one yet! This kid’s going to be a star in the making and is a lock to be featured on our early 2025 prospect rankings. His Hudl tape already shows more than what some 2022 and 2023 prospects have to offer. Excited to see him develop!

Aidan Hudak | DB | Franklin Regional HS | C/O 2024

Another young prospect that Coach Coleman has raved about. Coach had this to say about Hudak. “Explosive athlete, great ball skills and has track speed and can jump out the gym, made multiple plays on offense and defense”. We haven’t had a chance to see Hudak in person or on film, but we can take Coach’s word for it. He’s been added to our watchlist.

Jaire Rawlison Jaire Rawlison 5'10" | DB Bishop McDevitt | 2024 PA | DB/WR | Bishop McDevitt | C/O 2024

This kid fits the DB mold to a tee. Long arms, reps at wideout have helped with ball skills, and serious ball tracking skills are what Rawlison brings to the table. Bishop McDevitt has got another talented DB which seems to be a given at this point.

Noah Sanders | DB | Jeannette | C/O 2023
Sanders might be the most gifted and well-rounded athlete of this group and that’s saying something. He’s an unassuming 5’9″ defensive back that is highly physical despite his frame. He’s got serious talent and it runs through his bloodline. His brother, James Sanders recently committed to SFU. Serious FCS talent and that’s his floor.
