McDonough sorting through camps
Cole McDonough has been working hard this off-season to prepare himself this summer on the camp circuit. That effort is something he hopes pays off considering all the time he has put in.Bel Air offensive lineman
"I've been lifting and doing agility training five days a week. I have been keeping my grades up and trying to be prepared for the upcoming season."
McDonough feels that there is one major area that he has gotten better at.
"The most progress would be in my bench. Going into the season, it was around 265 pounds. Right now, it is at 310 pounds. I am going for 315 pounds when we test out again."
There is a lot for McDonough to sort through on the college camp front.
"I'm going to Maryland, Pittsburgh again, and some of the schools I've been talking to lately. It has been the Naval Academy and Ivy League schools like Cornell, Yale, Columbia, and Bucknell. I want to see what coaches show me the most interest and where I would have the best time."
McDonough has recruiting interest from a number of those programs.
"At this point, I'd say Columbia, Bucknell, Yale, Delaware, and the Naval Academy. The guy from Navy came down and sounded very interested. He was talking long term. The coach from Delaware was talking long term. I missed their spring game because I took the SAT."
A favorite is something that McDonough is declining to name.
"Not exactly. I am still looking to see where I can get the best education and play the best football. It has to balance out both ways to see where will be the best for me and my long term future."
