Bishop Kelly LB Cody McCarthy (Boise, ID) camped at Boise State this past week and greatly improved his chances when it comes to getting an offer from the Broncos. He was one of the top performers at the camp and has a busy week coming up as he will be attending a few other camps as well. "I'm on my way to the All-Poly Camp in Utah," he said. "I'll also be camping at Washington and Washington State," he added.

Cody and his teammates at Bishop Kelly won the 7-on-7 competition on The Blue. Head Coach Chris Petersen also presented him with a LB Award due to his outstanding performance at the camp. Add all that up and there's no doubt that Cody helped his chances greatly when it comes to getting an offer from Boise State. "We ended up beating Rocky Mountain for the championship," McCarthy said. "Our team performed well. We got the chance to put some younger kids in there and let them get their feet wet at the varsity level. We still have a lot of work to do and we're going to get better."

LBs Coach Jeff Choate told Cody that the group of LBs at the camp was the best he had ever seen on The Blue. That made winning the award an even greater honor in Cody's eyes. "It was good to win the award," he stated. "It's always a blessing to be fortunate enough to be selected as one of the top players in the camp. Coach Choate told us it was the best group of LBs ever at the camp."

The relationship that Cody has formed with Jeff Choate goes much further than football. Both are originally from North Idaho and McCarthy feels they both share the same blue-collar mentality. "Coach Choate really understands how to coach. He's really personable, easy to get along with, and loves what he does. He makes me play to my full potential," he said. "We have a couple things in common. We're both from logging towns in North Idaho."

The standout LB currently holds three offers as Washington State, Army, and Idaho State have all offered. It appears an offer from Boise State could be on the way soon. "Coach Choate told me he wants to have a meeting with me as soon as I can. I told him next Thursday would be best," he said. "Obviously, I want the offer and it would be a blessing. I'm just not going to count my chickens before they hatch," he added.

McCarthy (6'1, 220, 4.62) wants to focus on winning a state championship during his senior season. He believes Bishop Kelly has all the tools to make it happen in 2010. "I want to win a state championship and have a big ring on my finger," he said. "I want to be the best team captain and role model that I can be. I want to show people we're here to stay and give everything I've got."
