2011 Intro: Dylan Intemann

WAKE FOREST, N.C. --- During its run to the NCHSAA 4AA state semifinals – and a 14-1 season – Wake Forest-Rolesville relied heavily on an offensive line that helped two ‘backs rush for over 1,300 yards. The anchor of that line was Dylan Intemann.

"He had a say in [the rushing game's success]," Wake Forest-Rolesville head football coach Reggie Lucas said. "He takes care of his assignments. He does get down the field and get down on the safety pretty well, also."

Intemann, a 6-foot-5, 295-pouder, has started at right tackle in Wake Forest-Rolesville's wing-T offense since his freshman season.

"We have a real hard-nosed offense," Intemann said. "We do a lot of run blocking and get down and gritty. I think that produces tough linemen."

Typically, Wake Forest-Rolesville two-platoons its team. Thus, Intemann has never played defense. However, that could change this fall.

"He is asking [to play defense] and it is tempting to put that big body on defense," Lucas said. "We lost a lot on the defensive line and I'm thinking about [playing him on defense], but we don't know what's going to happen."

Outside of football, Intemann excels in track and field. At the NCHSAA 4A Indoor Track and Field Championships, he placed second in the shot put with a mark of 50 feet and 2 ¼ inches. He also throws the discus.

Three schools have offered Intemann scholarships – East Carolina, NC State, and Wake Forest. He is also receiving strong interest from Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Oregon, Penn State, Stanford, and South Carolina.

"Obviously, his size stands out," Lucas said. "But on top of that, when they see him on film, I think they're amazed with how fast he moves and how well he blocks, also."

Every school is recruiting Intemann as an offensive tackle. NC State and Wake Forest have been more specific by projecting him as a right tackle and left tackle, respectfully.

Intemann recently attended junior days at NC State and Wake Forest. Both schools now top his favorites list.

"Both are good schools and [offer] a good education," Intemann said.

Intemann's future schedule includes spring practices at Georgia Tech, NC State, South Carolina, and Wake Forest.

Intemann said he doesn't plan to make a verbal commitment until the end of the football season and after taking at least some official visits.

"I don't want to get into something too quickly and regret it later down the line," he said.
