Only a freshman, Dunaway put his talents on display this past Saturday in the Midwest Elite Camp. The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder was impressive, as he showcased good coordination and catching ability throughout the camp.
"I think I am doing okay," Dunaway said. "I have made a couple good catches. I'm working hard out here. I am going as fast as I can in every drill. So I think I am doing pretty well."
Dunaway is coming off a season where he played mostly on junior varsity for the Warriors, but was able to get valuable experience down the stretch as Brother Rice claimed its third straight Division 2 state championship.
"I got pulled up to junior varsity for the season," Dunaway said. "I think I did pretty well for a freshman being up there and doing everything. So I think I did exceptional pretty much. Then I got pulled for varsity for the playoffs. I didn't get much playing time there, but I was at practice every day giving it my all."
Dunway's brother, Jack, currently has a preferred walk-on offer from the Wolverines, and his father played under U-M coach Bo Schembechler. So his first loyalty has always been to Michigan, he says, but was never forced.
"I was pushed a little, but it wasn't forced at all," said Dunaway, on growing up a fan of the Wolverines. "I love Ann Arbor, the city is awesome. I like Michigan. That's all I have to say."
While he doesn't have any offers at the moment, Dunaway says he will make his rounds on the camp circuit this summer. He says he is planning on camping at Michigan and Sound Mind, Sound Body, and possibly at Michigan State.
"I just want to learn," Dunaway said on his upcoming camp experience. "I'm in high school right now. The next level is just that much better. I want to be able to learn and be able to face guys older than me."
As far as his goals for next season, Dunaway says: "I want to be starting at the beginning of the season. I obviously want another state championship, that would be great."
