Junior Joe Schafer OT is Getting Early Looks

Joe Schafer, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound offensive tackle from St. Paul (MN) Cretin Derham Hall, appears to be the latest in the line of standout Raider offensive linemen. Schafer helped lead his team to a 10-1 mark and runner-up finish in Section 4, Class AAAAA. GoldenSports.Net recently caught up with Schafer to learn the latest of his recruitment.

Joe Schafer is hoping that he can be the latest Cretin lineman to move on to the Division I level, joining former Raiders Matt Carufel (Notre Dame), Ned Tavale (Minnesota), Raef Eubanks (Iowa) and Ryan Harris (Notre Dame).

Schafer said that he is hearing from Michigan, Ohio State, Minnesota, Iowa, Minnesota, Boston College and Wisconsin.

Schafer has been invited to Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa summer football camps.

Schafer is also playing for the Cretin basketball team, which is off to a 9-4 start. He started at center early this season when Broderick Binns was sidelined with a thigh bruise, but has since moved to the bench with Binns healthy.
