"Coach Mac said he was going to start me out on the defensive line, but that they could always move me to offensive line if need be. As long as I'm on the field, I'm happy to play on either side. My goal is to come in next year, learn the playbook, and work for a spot on the field as a true freshman."
Looney's older brother, Joe, had an outstanding career at Wake Forest on the offensive front and is currently in his rookie season with the San Francisco 49ers. He also played at Lake Worth, in Palm Beach County, before going to Winston-Salem. The team is struggling this season, just 1-8, but Looney is hoping to go out a winner this Friday on senior night.
"I had a good game last week against Atlantic," Looney said. "I had two sacks and a forced fumble just playing in half of the game. Unfortunately, we didn't make the playoffs. I'm just going to use the time to weight lift and get myself ready for spring ball."
The Lake Worth Trojans will host Palm Beach Gardens (7-1) and hope to spring a big upset in their season finale. Looney will graduate in December and will enroll at Wake Forest in January.
