Two York-Adams big-school standouts make Tremendous 25 list for Mr. Pa. Football Award
Two York-Adams standouts are still in the running for one of the most prestigious awards in Pennsylvania high school football.
Central York quarterback Beau Pribula and York High running back Jahiem White made the Tremendous 25 list for the Mr. Pa. Football Award in the big-school divisions (Class 4-A through Class 6-A). Both Pribula and White are coming off all-state seasons in 2021.
Last fall, the 6-foot, 2-inch, 210-pound Pribula completed 141 of his 197 passes for 2,575 yards with 33 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 417 yards on 76 attempts, averaging 5.5 yards per rush. He also ran for eight TDs.
The 5-9, 195-pound White averaged a whopping 13.1 yards per attempt, finishing the 2021 season with 163 rushes for 2,128 yards. He scored 30 touchdowns and led the York-Adams League in scoring with 204 points.
The Tremendous 25 big-school list is packed with talent, including Governor Mifflin running back Nicholas Singleton, who has already won a couple of national player-of-the-year honors, as well as a host of other players who have committed to NCAA Division I Power Five programs.
Pribula has already joined the Penn State program as an early enrollee, while White, who is just a junior, has already committed to West Virginia. Singleton is also an early enrollee at PSU.
The other District 3 players on the big-school Tremendous 25 list are: Manheim Township wideout Anthony Ivey, Bishop McDevitt athlete Mario Easterly, Central Dauphin East athlete Mehki Flowers, Lampeter-Strasburg lineman Nick Del Grade and Cocalico lineman Ryan Brubaker. Ivey and Flowers are also PSU recruits.

Del Grande, Brubaker and Shippensburg’s Anthony Smith made the big-school Terrific 10 list for the Mr. Pa. Football Lineman Award, while Mack, Williams and Broadie made the small-school Terrific 10 for the linemen.
