LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Joey Mondia – Joey has great skills in both coverage skills and defending the run. Joey is a great leader for the team and that leadership will follow him to college.
Blake Coughlin – Blake is very athletic with great his amazing speed. He was All-Conference in both football and track his junior year. Blake excels at stuffing the run and rushing the passer.
Elijah Hickman – Elijah is dominate on both sides of the ball at both DT and RB. His combination of speed and strength help him get off blocks and get in the backfield consistently. At RB he has great potential to be a goal line back and has the speed to break a few out for big plays.
Ahmed Arain – Ahmed is also a great two-way player for us at DE and WR. He is very disciplined at DE staying with his outside contain forcing the run back in or even shutting it down in the backfield. His big 6’4″ frame helps him out lots at both positions and he can make plays in open space at WR.
Plainfield East Head Coach Terrance Terry on Singletary on and off the field
“DeMarkus is a special football talent. He’s extremely versatile and coachable. He’s the type of kid who will do everything you ask him to do both on and off the field. In addition to being a tremendous talent, DeMarkus is also a great leader for our defense. Whenever guys are down, DeMarkus is a voice we can always expect to be positive and encouraging. That’s just the type of person he is.”
