Army and Toledo became the first two schools to offer a scholarship to Buffalo Grove offensive tackle Marc Damisch this week. The 6-foot-5.5, 275-pound offensive tackle has been receiving interest from many schools over the past several months and this week things just starting coming to fruition with his first two offers.
"A coach was in from Toledo today during my gym class," Damisch said. "I'm terrible with names and can't recall who it was, but he told me that he was impressed with what he saw from me at the last two camps I attended and wanted to offer me a scholarship based on that. He said to expect a call to my parents soon to talk about Toledo as well. I know that they've had a strong presence in the MAC over the past few years and are a good football program."
"Coach (Tucker) Waugh was in school on Monday and offered me a scholarship to play for Army," Damisch explained. "In the brief time we spoke he just told me about the positive things that Army offers. He said that the average salary for someone coming out of their school is very high and that they had a beautiful campus, among other things. I'd have absolutely no problem serving my country for four years, so I'll be looking further into that opportunity to see what it entails. I know I need to get recommendations which Coach Waugh explained the process of. He really seemed like a nice guy to me."
Army and Toledo aren't the only schools that have been by Buffalo Grove High School over the past couple of days. Bowling Green, Illinois, Indiana and Iowa State were all at the school on Tuesday and others like Penn State and Miami(OH) have been through recently.
