Doylestown Pipeline UPDATED

Alex Gibson

Yet another player from Central Bucks High School East has committed to the Lions for 2016.

This time it's 5-10 195 pound RB Alex Gibson.

Gibson was just named to the 2016 Eastern PA High School football watch list.

This news comes just a few days after Gibson's teammate DE/OL Lamine Nouck-A-Nwal announced he was coming to Columbia next year.

Kudos to Tight Ends Coach Joe D'Orazio, who recruits this area for getting two players from a competitive, high quality football program that had never sent any players to Columbia before.

But D'Orazio knows a lot about Doylestown. One of his best teammates at St. Joe's Prep in Philly was Doylestown native Andy Shalbrack '10. Shalbrack went on to be a four year impact player at safety at Columbia and the man who scored the TD on the best play of the decade, (2000-2009), for the Lions.

It seems crazy to start a list of 2016 commits so early, but it's time to start keeping track as we have five names already:

1) Parker Coogan OL/DT 6-2 270 lbs. Kingwood HS Houston, TX

2) Matt Dame QB 6-2 185 lbs. Suncoast HS Riviera Beach, FL

3) Alex Gibson RB 5-10 195 lbs. Central Bucks High School East Doylestown, PA

4) Lamine Nouck-A-Nwal DE/OL  6-4 250 lbs. Central Bucks High School East Doylestown, PA

5) Hunter Petlansky QB 6-2 225 lbs. Modesto Central Catholic HS Modesto, CA

It would be great to know which band each player is in- probably not possible. It would be most interesting to know the amount of picks that we have in the lowest plan for this year.

College sports madness puts 5 on the preseason All Ivy Teams. Not even a mention Jake?

All in good time. It was up on the official team website.
