Defensive End Pleased By First Major Offer

A Hewitt-Trussville High School defensive lineman says that a college from the Atlantic Coast Conference is the first to offer him a football scholarship as he prepares for his final high school season.

Trussville, Ala.--Sean Dailey, a 6-2, 250 defensive end from Hewitt-Trussville High School, was hoping to attract major college scholarship offers this summer.

Dailey, the son of former Auburn defensive end standout John Dailey, says that his first offer is from a college in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

"Florida State called and offered me a scholarship," he says. "I plan to go to their camp and I am going to a one-day camp at Auburn. Florida State told me they liked the video I sent."

Dailey says that he is interested in the Seminoles and notes he met FSU head coach Bobby Bowden when the veteran coach was playing golf in the Birmingham area.

Dailey, who is expected to be a three-year starter this fall, played offensive tackle as a sophomore and defensive end last season. He was selected to play for the North All-Stars and participated in the Alabama High School Athletic Association's junior all-star game at Troy University in December.
