NOTE: Attached is a list of Oregon’s top athletes for the 2019 class. Most freshman don’t play Varsity ball so expect to see a host of additions as the year progresses.
-Big thank you to Line Pro founder/coach Alex Linnenkohl for providing his insight on some of the state’s top young lineman.
*No Particular Order
Patrick Herbert 6-4 215 WR/ATH Sheldon– Herbert has the potential of being the top player in Oregon for his class. He comes from a ridiculously talented family with his brothers Mitch (Montana St So. WR) and Justin (Oregon Fr. QB) ranking as the state’s best. Patrick scored multiple Varsity TD’s last season and is an unquestioned D1 kid.
Chris Todd 6-2 190 LB/ATH Lake Oswego– Before all is said and done Todd could be one of the top players on the West coast. His 6-8 brother Drew Todd did well at WR for the Lakers, with Chris projecting as a high profile D1 kid.
Jailen Hammer 6-0 180 ATH/S Sprague– Jailen had a breakout off season as part of the Team Oregon/EForce Freshman group. He accounted for close to 30 TD’s (Receiving, Passing) for the Olympians during the regular season. Hammer could be one of the top players in the GVC as a Sophomore.
Ethan Long 6-2 200 QB West Linn– Long will project as one of the top QB’s in the West for his class and an unquestioned D1 kid. The importance of learning from a coach (Chris Miller), that has played and succeeded at the highest level can’t be understated. He will also benefit a great deal playing behind the likes of 2x Oregon Gatorade Player of the Year Tim Tawa.
Pone Aisea 6-1 220 RB/LB Roosevelt– Unreal overall athlete that could play a high level of D1 football. His brother Lopeti was equally talented.
Dawson Jolley 5-10 170 RB West Linn- One of the best backs in Oregon covering the next couple of seasons. Dawson broke off Sherwood in the state semifinals last season, going 60+ for a score. He will get a chance to learn from Elijah Molden and share carries with the 4* star talent.
Isaac Flemmer 6-4 220 T Valley Catholic– Flemmer is long and gifted with size. As of right now he could be the best the of the bunch for his class, projecting as Oregon’s top O lineman at the 4A level
Will Scadden 6-3 175 WR Lakeridge- Look for Scadden to start as a Sophomore and be one of the state’s top WR’s for his class. He has all the tools and will get an opportunity to play early for the Pacers.
Bryson Breeze 5-11 175 SS/WLB Lake Oswego– The younger brother of 4* star Duck commit Brady Breeze. Bryson played Varsity ball as a freshman, and should play a prominent role this season.
Jacob Ferenczi 6-5 260 OL North Bend– Very similar to Flemmer as he has D1 size and an outstanding work ethic. He traveled across the state to train with Line Pro founder Alex Linnenkohl.
Ryan Bertelsen 6-3 230 DE Lake Oswego – Comes hard off the edge and will be one of the state’s best DE’s/ OLB’s before he is done. Could play early for the Lakers.
Zach Carr 6-2 215 LB Jesuit- Carr is a beast and can play multiple spots on the field. Look for him to contribute at the Varsity level this season for the Crusaders.
Jake Bushman 5-10 190 LB Clackamas– Head coach Joe Bushman has done a good job with his son. He’s a great kid that should play early for the Cavs, and be one of the top Sophomores in the Mt Hood.
Matt Sebolsky 5-10 160 CB Lake Oswego– Tough and talented athlete. Can get it done on either side of the ball. Not the biggest kid on the field but talent wise he is a player.
Kelsen Hennessey 6-4 230 DE Clackamas– Another kid with size that looks the part. With continued progression and game experience he has the potential of being one of the region’s best.
Jacky Ha 5-9 150 CB Madison– One of the fastest kids in the state. Ha plays with no fear and will rank as one of the most versatile athletes in Oregon for his class.
