Here is a look at the all-Southeastern Pennsylvania first-team defense:


Jewhan Edwards, Roman Catholic.

Strong and quick, the Minnesota recruit consistently caused problems for opposing linemen. In the Catholic League Red Division final against St. Joseph's Prep, he blocked a punt that was recovered for a touchdown.

Rob Lohr, Phoenixville.

The two-way end posted 45 tackles, 15 sacks and recovered a fumble for a touchdown. He has orally committed to Vanderbilt.

Pete Massaro, Marple Newtown.

Despite missing three games with an injury, the Penn State recruit totaled 36 tackles, including nine for losses, and six sacks.

Jeff Matteis, Haverford High.

At defensive end, he registered 70-plus tackles for a unit that allowed only 11.6 points per game and notched three shutouts. Temple, Villanova, Brown, Lehigh and Yale have been in contact.

Shahid Paulhill, North Catholic.

The Falcons' two-way tackle was an interior force, always active, and did not take plays off. He is headed to Temple.


Bob DeLucas, Archbishop Wood.

His gritty play as a running back and middle linebacker helped the Vikings reach the Catholic League Blue Division championship game.

Jabair Khan, West Chester Henderson.

A quick-footed linebacker, Khan was involved in 100 tackles and recorded four sacks. He also was one of the area's most dangerous kick returners.

Mike Pereira, St. Joseph's Prep.

The hard-nosed junior was always around the ball and a fierce hitter. With Pereira leading the way, the Hawks yielded only 7.8 points per game and had three shutouts.

Chris Spence, Frankford.

A rugged tackler with excellent range, he was the centerpiece of the Pioneers' defense. After Frankford had to sit out the playoffs because it used an overaged player, Spence made sure he and his teammates finished strong.


Louis Brown, Upper Dublin.

Quick and versatile, Brown was involved in 70-plus tackles, made 10 interceptions and recovered three fumbles (two for TDs). He played wide receiver, running back, quarterback and kick returner.

Greg Castillo, St. Joseph's Prep.

The shutdown cornerback did not see many passes thrown his way. Castillo also chipped in as a receiver (21 catches for 538 yards and nine TDs) and kick returner. Bowling Green and Stanford, among others, have offered scholarships.

Jim McGoldrick, St. Joseph's Prep.

A smart player with excellent instincts, he was arguably the Prep's most valuable player. At safety, he covered and tackled well. McGoldrick also returned four punts and a kickoff for TDs.

Abdul Smith, Perkiomen School.

The lightning-quick safety is getting recruited by top-flight Division I-A programs across the country. He had 59 tackles and four interceptions.


Jordan Waxman, Quakertown.

Drawing recruiting interest from Temple and Toledo, he averaged 39 yards per punt, with a long of 61 yards. Five of his punts were downed inside the 5-yard line. For his career, Waxman had 16 field goals and 54 PATs.
