Chandler Park Academy (MI) senior wide receiver Csont'e York put on an offensive display Friday as his Eagles(1-1) dominated Summit Academy (MI) 56-6 to get their first win of the season.
A 2013 Michigan commit, York finished the contest with four catches for 59 yards including a 22-yard TD reception. He also had two 2-point conversions catches and a sensational 65-yard punt return for a score late in the fourth quarter.
"I just tried to work on my routes and get the ball in my hands," York told GoBlueWolverine.com. "You know, my coach, he just told me to attack their corner. You know if you play up on me, it's a fade. If he plays off, short routes, post, curls, hitches. That's what we did today."
At 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, York was a mismatch for the Summit defense, especially with them covering him in one-on-one coverage most of the game.
"Yeah, I am like, man, just throw the ball up," York said with a chuckle.
Getting better, looking ahead to Michigan
This past Summer York traveled and played in many top camps and 7-on-7 ournaments, and said the experience has helped him as receiver going into this season.
"Oh it helped me a lot going up against some of the top corners," York explained. "Vernon (Hargreaves III), Damon Webb, John Kelly, you know those are good players. They held me a lot trying to get off the jam—like trying to get off the jam (to) beat the cover three—and I appreciate that. I have been working hard to try to better my team. So we're doing good."
York said he intends on attending the Michigan home opener versus Air Force next Saturday. He said he looking to build relationships with other Wolverine commitments. He also stressed that he would like to further his relations with the Maize & Blue coaching staff.
"I am just trying to get to know them more," York said. "We are trying to build family wise, cause it is a family thing in Ann Arbor. It's about the team and family. That's all it's about. You know, respect and loyalty. So that's what I am looking for."
Currently, York wears the No. 1 jersey for Chandler Park. He stated that he would like to earn that opportunity once he arrives in Ann Arbor.
"Yes it's a goal, Yes," York said with a smile. "One of my goals—like Braylon Edwards, he was an awesome player at Michigan. I think I can do what he did if I put my heart and mind to it. I am looking forward to working hard to get that number one."
