This rising junior is one of the most explosive and exciting prospects in the WPIAL. Going into his junior year, Cade looks to make a larger impact for the Penn-Trafford Warriors. He was able to gather 295 yards total on 27 touches and 6 touchdowns. He also made an impact on special teams as a returner along with Villanova commit, Ethan Carr. His role on special teams last year showcased his explosiveness and athleticism. Look for Cade to improve upon those qualities . This offseason, he posted on social media evidence of his hard work in a video of his 60” vertical box jump. I decided to interview this up and coming athlete before this season.
