Top Prospects Anchor St Ignatius Defense

      Cleveland St Ignatius could very well have two of the top ten football recruits in the Ohio Class od 2014. Neither one are a finished product, which is really good news to Head Coach Chuck Kyle. For me, I think that the sky is the limit. Kyle Berger plays linebacker and can play both inside and out. Dameon Willis is a very active strong safety.
      I have been fortunate to see Kyle Berger (2014) play both basketball and football. The hoops game I saw, he was resting a sore ankle. But I saw him play earlier against St Clairsville. Agressive on the basketball court. Really like his energy. On the football field he does just as well. Good balance. Stays on his feet. Excellent closing speed. Maybe his best strength is that he finishes plays. Listed at 6'3-215, he will need to add weight and strength. His motor is always running. Good hips. Changes direction well. As I talked with him, he just gets it. A low-key attitude with a top speed competitive attitude.
      Dameon Willis(2014) just keeps getting bigger and stronger. Listed 6'1-205, I believe that he is bigger than that. Plays with an attitude. Maybe just alittle out of control, but not often. Excellent closing speed. Much like Kyle Berger, he finishes plays. Lines up at strong safety, but will eventually be an outside linebacker. Runs well downhill. Needs to improve change of direction, but part of the problem is that he is so aggressive.  Watched him at the NIKE Combine last week. Same smile-same competitive attitude.
      Two different personalities. Two different body builds. Both good character guys. Both athletic. Both fun to talk with. Perhaps the best and most important likenesses are that they both love football and both will "rock" a ball carrier. St Ignatius Coach Chuck Kyle's defense has two college prospects, who are even better young men.
