Conestoga Valley (PA) quarterback Jordan Steffy has enjoyed a productive spring. He has fared well in several top East coast camps, and his performance has earned him double digit scholarship offers with more likely on the way.

“I would say I have about 13 scholarship offers at this point,” said Steffy. “Indiana, Iowa, UNC, Duke, Clemson, Maryland, Syracuse, Wisconsin, Purdue, Pitt, and Virginia are some of my early offers. Virginia has offered me verbally but there is nothing official right now.”

Steffy impressed scouts in both the State College and Blacksburg Nike Camps. At State College, he was rated in the top three quarterbacks in a group that included top prospects Chad Henne (Wilson, PA) and Anthony Morelli (Penn Hills, PA). He was rated the number one quarterback at the more recent Blacksburg camp.

The Nike camp experiences have proved exciting and beneficial for Steffy.

“It’s a good measuring stick,” said Steffy of the camps. “It’s good to go against guys who are the best. I would rather compete against better players. I think you get more out of it.”

If you are thinking Steffy sounds like a natural leader, then you are thinking correctly. His leadership ability is what he prides himself on during those Friday night football games.

It may be what separates him from other top prospects.

“My leadership and knowledge of the game [are my strengths],” said Steffy. “You can throw the ball a long ways, complete passes, and make runs, but it’s important to go out there and lead your team.”

Conestoga Valley head coach Gerad Novak often gets offensive playbook assistance from Steffy, who loves to study the game of football.

“Jordan has been a three year starter for us, and he has gotten better each year,” said Novak. “He is a real student of the game – he always draws up plays that he thinks would be effective against the opposition.”

Steffy has more than leadership ability. He can throw the ball a long ways, make completions, and run the football with the best. At 6-1, 210 pounds, Steffy is an athletic quarterback. He can run and he can pass. As a junior, he completed 156 of 246 passes for 2,031yards, 19 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. Steffy rushed for 12 touchdowns in Conestoga Valley’s option offense.

Most schools are recruiting Steffy to play quarterback. Several schools want him as an athlete because of his tremendous athletic ability – he ran a 4.47 in the 40 yard dash at the Penn
