Prendergast and Savage have a lot of similarities: They're both big and fast and both can play offense and defense. Savage has an edge in strength, but Prendergast nearly doubled his production in the passing game. He caught 54 balls for 1,253 yards and 12 scores.
Prendergast is also a monster in the ground game. He carried the ball just 21 times last year, but ran for 310 yards and three TDs. That's nearly 15 yards per carry.
Prendergast had 1,746 all-purpose yards as the Pirates went 8-2.
I've talked about a new QB being in play for the Pirates, in Dustin Gregg, but with the number of threats Santa Ynez has it shouldn't be a problem for the offense to finds its groove early on.
On defense, Prendergast uses his height and speed to become a stellar defensive back. He had 54 total tackles last year (32 solo), three tackles for loss, a sack and four interceptions.
Prendergast also had a 90-yard kick return for a touchdown. Currently, Prendergast has been generating interest from some Ivy League schools and San Diego, so he has a future in major college football.
There is a lot of competition for that second spot on this list, but after what he did last year I feel there's no argument to be had here. Prendergast is a legit play-maker.
