Michigan DB Has An Offer

Detroit (Country Day) defensive back Cortland Selman is the only freshman to start on the varsity football team at Country Day in the past 20 years.

Cortland Selman, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound, athlete from Detroit (Country Day) will be a prospect to watch in 2003.

Selman is the only football player in 20 years to start as a freshman at Country Day.

"I only had a few calls in May," said Selman.

"Most of the schools had the wrong phone number. I have a scholarship offer from Central Michigan University.

"My favorites right now are Northwestern, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio State."

Selman is being recruited as a defensive back. He was named all-area as a junior. Cortland won a regional title in the 110-meter high hurdles.

Selman says he has already been to Bowling Green for camp and he may also camp at Michigan State and Ohio State this summer.
