OL/DL Connor Pappas Proving Size Doesn’t ALWAYS Matter

November 15, 2022
Press Contact: Barnegat, NJ: Out of necessity, Connor Pappas has always played out of position.

For the last two seasons, the 6-foot, 185-pound senior has started on the offensive and defensive lines for the Barnegat (NJ) Bengals, who are 4-5.

As former Barnegat coach Rob Davis said, "He's a skill position kid playing with his hand in the dirt. But he's quicker than most tackles and he uses that to his advantage.''

Undersized for his positions, Davis feels Pappas can play on the Division 3 or even 2 level. but it would probably have to be at linebacker.

"No doubt,'' said Davis. "He's instinctive, quick and he can move. The experience of playing on the line will help him on the next level. This season I would say he has a chance to be a Second Team, All Division kid. He improved a lot since he was younger.''

Pappas has bench pressed 215 pounds and squatted 345. He has run a 4.7 fully automatic time in the 40. A multi-sport athlete and starter on the wrestling team, the team won only eight matches, but Pappas personally won 12 of his bouts at 175 pounds. He is also a member of the lacrosse team.

Scouting Report: ''Undersized for his position, Pappas used his athletic ability, his quickness and his field awareness to get the job done. On the college level, Pappas will probably move to linebacker where he will no doubt use those attributes to be successful.''

Pappas is hoping his post-season highlight footage will get the attention he needs to be recruited to play on the next level.
