David Schwartz – Longmeadow High School – DE/G – Schwartz stands 6’4” and 240 pounds but runs exceptionally well and plays a very physical game on both sides of the ball. A very quick and disruptive defensive end that really goes after the ball carrier or the quarterback. A physical offensive guard who can pull in the running game and make blocks at the second level. Schwartz is a better known commodity in western Massachusetts as he was awarded this year’s Angelo Bertelli Award given out to the area’s most valuable football player. The junior still has one more high school season left and he has received an offer from Brown University along with interest from Colgate, Princeton, Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Amherst College and Williams College. A starter since his freshman season Schwartz is also a very good student and he exemplifies what being a student-athlete is all about. A good comparison for Schwartz is Xaverian Brothers’ defensive end Cal Flanders who is already committed to Brown for next fall after passing on a preferred walk-on scholarship offer from Head Coach Jim Harbaugh at Michigan. One can only imagine if Brown had Flanders and Schwartz lined up as bookend defensive ends on the same defensive line. If Schwartz adds weight to his frame he could also be moved inside on the defensive line more in the mold of Lawrence Academy’s defensive lineman Ryan Betro. Given this is prime class of 2018 recruiting season we would not be surprised at all if Schwartz gets interest from FBS schools over the next couple of months and ends up playing for a top college football program.
