Westmoreland County high school notebook: Norwin receiver gets Division I attention

Jackson Pons has two years of high school football left at Norwin, the same number of Division I football scholarship offers he has.
Gardner-Webb offered him a year ago.
The latest offer took him aback.
“I was surprised for sure,” Pons said.
He has been busy playing on the 7-on-7 circuit but knows coaches pay attention to the route-running and receptions in shorts and T-shirts.
“I have been out competing at national camps and showcases the past two years, but I was just at a 24/7 showcase and was named a top performer, so things have picked up a lot since then,” he said. “I am really grateful all my hard work is starting to pay off.”
Pons (6-1, 180) led Norwin with 33 receptions for 457 yards and a touchdown last season.
Penn-Trafford lineman Joe Enick continues to draw Division I FCS attention. Enick (6-3, 290), a center and defensive lineman, received an offer from Youngstown State, giving the junior three offers. The others are from The Citadel and St. Francis (Pa.).
Norwin football player Nate Kadosh-Harris will continue his playing career at Grove City of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference. Harris, a running back and linebacker, rushed for 316 yards and made 43 tackles, with six sacks, last season.
• Norwin senior javelin thrower Aaron Schmook received a scholarship offer from Slippery Rock. Schmook owns the Norwin school record with a throw of 189 feet, 3 inches.
