Keystone Oaks RB Jordan Maddox generating D-1 interest
Written by: Josh Funk on Friday, June 18th, 2010
Keystone Oaks is in a unique position entering its 2010 season – the Eagles return a pair of 1,000-yard rushers to its fold. One of those 1,000-yard rushers, Jordan Maddox, is generating some Division-1 interest.
Maddox, a 5’9, 182-pound running back for Keystone Oaks, has received interest, but no scholarship offers, from six Division-1 programs – Akron, Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Penn State, Pitt and West Virginia, according to Scout.com.
Maddox and teammate Matt McCann (who is listed in Scout’s database at inside linebacker) return to help key KO’s grind-it-out power run offense. The Eagles’ are one of only two schools in the Keystone State returning a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in 2010 – the other is United High School, a Class “A” program in District 6.
Last season, Maddox amassed 1,439 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns on 171 carries, averaging over 8.4 yards per carry and 119 yards rushing per game. Maddox also caught four passes for 55 yards and another touchdown as a receiver. Defensively, Maddox tallied 77 tackles and eight sacks.
Maddox surpassed 100+ rushing yards in eight of KO’s 12 games in 2009 – reaching or surpassing the 149-yard plateau in six of those games. Defensively, Maddox reached 10+ tackles in two contests and had three games with multiple sacks.
Keystone Oaks finished 10-2, reaching the WPIAL “AA” semifinals before falling to Greensburg Central Catholic, 24-19. The Eagles averaged close to 32 points and 355 yards of total offense per game.
Since dropping down to the “AA” classification after the 2008 season, Keystone Oaks has posted an overall record of 20-4 and earned consecutive berths in the WPIAL playoffs.
