Full scholarship to Ohio State University! What more needs to be said about Jon Skinner’s ability on the football field. At 6’5″ and 280 pounds, Jon’s service were sought by a number of Division I schools, but it was coach Jim Trestle who convinced Jon to become a Buckeye. Jon first broke into the starting lineup as a freshman near the end of the 2000 season. That experience helped him to become a three year starter at offensive tackle for the Big Red. A devastating pass blocker and a superb run blocker, Jon helped the Tornadoes to a 47-7 record during his four years at MCA. He helped the offenses gain over 18,000 yards for an average of 342 yards per game. His teams also averaged 32.4 points per game while setting a new MCA record with 26 consecutive wins. He was part of two State Championship teams in 2000 and 2002 and an Eastern Conference Championship in 2001.

For his efforts, Jon was recognized as a first team offensive lineman on the Patriot News Platinum 33 team, as well as being named first team all-state by the Associated Press. Jon also picked up first team honors by the Pennsylvania Football News and as a member of the WNEP – 16 Dream Team. Skinner ranks 3rd in a class of 128 with a 100.15 average and 1230 SAT. He is the son of Judy and John Skinner, Mount Carmel.
