McKeesport 2015 Football Preview

Written by Keith Barnes on .

McKeesport coach George Smith is a realist when he looks at his team coming into this season.

"It always depends on the younger guys," Smith said. "To be really good at the Quad-A level, your best defensive linemen have to play offensive line and [in camp] is where you find them so you don't have to use them all the time and they don't have to go both ways."

While the Tigers search to fill a few spots along the lines, their skill positions are fairly set with third-year starter Khaleke Hudson (5-10, 210, Sr., RB-LB) ready to carry the load again. Hudson, who had 179 carries for 1,644 yards and 26 total touchdowns in 2014, is projected to play defense in college and has already received more than 30 Football Bowl Subdivision offers.

Though Hudson is receiving the most attention, he's not the only Tigers player with offers on the table.

McKeesport coach George Smith says whenever McKeesport needs a play offensively or defensively, they call on Hudson. And he has delivered plenty of times. As a running back in 2014, Hudson was the fifth-leading rusher in the WPIAL in the regular season and finished with 1,644 yards on 179 attempts. He scored 26 touchdowns. He also is a standout defensively at strong safety. He also will be McKeesport's punter this year.



Football: McKeesport star postpones decision

Written by Brad Everett on .

Schools hoping to land one of the WPIAL's top players will have to wait a bit longer to find out his decision.

Khaleke Hudson was set to make his college decision Saturday, but the McKeesport star tweeted Wednesday that he has postponed his announcement.

Hudson tweeted: "After talking it over with my family I've decided to not commit this Saturday and continue through the recruiting process!"

Hudson is a 6-foot, 200-pound running back/defensive back who is ranked by Rivals as the No. 9 senior in Pennsylvania. Most schools are recruiting Hudson as a safety, but some believe he could have a future at running back.
