Fafoul has been in contact with Princeton and Maryland recently, adding that colleges have only recently been catching on to him because he played as Loyolas backup last season. Im talking to Coach Franklin, he liked me, Fafoul said. He said he looked forward to watching me play this year and wants to exchange e-mails.
While Loyolas running game struggled against a physical and quick Good Counsel defense, Fafoul performed solidly, engineering two long drives. We got a lot of work to do, Fafoul said.
Two Division 1-AA schools – Stony Brook (N.Y.) and Towson (Md.) – have offered Dancel, and Maryland Offensive Coordinator James Franklin and Recruiting Coordinator Dave Sollazzo have been in contact with him. Dancel said he wants to go to a school where I fit in. I dont care if its a big or small school, I just want to be somewhere where the coaches are welcoming.
Dancel noted that Maryland scouts said theyd be paying close attention to his performance through the first three games of the season against three tough squads: Gilman (Baltimore), St. Xavier (Cincinnati) and State College (Pa.). [From the Maryland coaches perspective], its all about the first three games, so well see, said Dancel.
A repeat WCAC championship might improve Dancels stock, and solidify scouts opinions on the quarterbacks leadership ability. Were very pleased with [Dancel], said Good Counsel Head Coach Bob Milloy. Having him out there is like having another coach on the field.
Diggs, who has earned offers from Maryland, Pittsburgh and Rutgers, said he has been talking with Recruiting Coordinator Dave Sollazzo lately. He added that the three schools are all pretty much even on his list right now, but expressed a lot of interest in Maryland.
Diggs cited his big hands and ability to move in the open field as his best attributes on the football field. He said that, although hes not sure on which side of the ball hed prefer to play in college, he likes offense. He added that he hopes to improve his speed and strength this year.
