New Level Athletics will be bringing the Badger Sports 7v7 Passing Camp to UPMC Indoor Facility this weekend and will have plenty of coverage of the event.

After stops in Akron and Ohio State the past two years, New Level Athletics is bringing their Midwest 7v7 Passing Camp to the University of Pittsburgh this weekend. There will be plenty of talent on hand and the industry leader in recruiting coverage will be on hand covering the event.

Here is a preview of the running backs that will display their skills at this event. Who will shine the brightest one of these known commodities or will an unknown newcomer rise up and steal the spotlight?


Running backs:

Western PA Swag I features a few players that could play running back like Greg Garmon. The four-star from Erie/Pa./McDowell can play anywhere including defensive back or wide receiver. Western PA Swag II features Pittsburgh/Pa./North Hills junior Isaiah Faulk who will be looking to make a name for himself. The Indiana AWP squad will feature Army All-American Combine standout Te’Vaughn Hurse, who ran for a staggering 2,946 yards and 35 touchdowns last season.

The Steel City Stars (Yellow) features McKees Rocks/Pa./Sto-Rox two-way standout Josh Beverly who is as productive as any back in the WPIAL not named Rushel Shell. Western Mass features one of the smallest, but most electric running backs in the New England states with 5-foot-7, 145-pound, Mel’Quawn Pinkney. Virginia will put its faith in one of the top backs in the East Region Chesapeake/Va/Oscar Smith tailback J.C. Coleman who holds a handful of offers from the likes of West Virginia, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

Maryland Flex will be led by Uriah Bethea who had a solid showing at the Rutgers event. Not to be out done for the Flex team will be the small, but powerful Darius Victor. The Maryland Dream Team features Brandon Neverdon. Neverdon might not get much press just yet, but he is very talented. Former DeMatha standout Josh McPherson is also very capable at running back. The PA Playmakers will feature one of the best underclassmen backs in Pennsylvania David Williams. Williams is a bruising style runner, so 7v7 may not be the best showcase for his skill set.
