For the second edition of Prospect Watch, I got in touch with Gio Vonne Sanders, from WPIAL Class-A powerhouse Jeannette. Sanders is a 2017 grad, and could hopefully be the next Western Pennsylvania Athlete rocking the Navy and Gold.

Diving into Sanders’ stats, he definitely likes to score touchdowns. Through seven games this season he has around 1500 All-Purpose yards and 25 (!!) Touchdowns. Pair that with last year, when he lead Jeannette to a WPIAL Championship appearance, where Sanders gathered 2300 All-Purpose yards and 25 more touchdowns.
