Pittsburgh Central Catholic is preparing for a nationally-televised ESPN game with Archbishop Wood—a game that will feature Maryland commits Perry Hills and Anthony Nixon for Central Catholic, in addition to Florida commit Colin Thompson, Rutgers commits Desmon Peoples and Brandon Arcidiacono and Boston College commit Frank Taylor.
Logan Dietz is an offensive lineman for Central Catholic, and he too has a few Division I offers from Bowling Green, Akron, Toledo and West Virginia. The Vikings have prepared for their big in-state game with Archbishop Wood with scrimmages against McKeesport and one coming up on Friday against Perry Traditional Academy.
"Everything has been going great," Dietz said. "This is our second week of three-a-days, and we've been busy. We scrimmaged McKeesport, and it went very well. I still think there's areas we can improve on. We scored four touchdowns, they scored none."
Dietz said that even though he has never played on a nationally-televised stage like this, his coaches have been doing a good job keeping the team focused heading into the game.
"We're really looking forward to it," Dietz said. "We feel it would definitely be a game that would prove to us where we're at."
As for his summer tour, Dietz has the offers from MAC schools Akron, Bowling Green and Toledo. He camped at West Virginia, picking up an offer from the Mountaineers shortly after the camp.
"They offered a couple days after camp," Dietz said. "I guess I did well enough. The coaches told me I had done very well."
Dietz will take an unofficial visit to the hometown Pittsburgh Panthers this week, somewhere in the midst of one of those three-a-day practices. He's not sure if the Pitt coaching staff is going to come through with an offer on Tuesday, but he is looking forward to getting down there.
"I'm actually going down there on Tuesday, to meet a bunch of coaches," Dietz said. "I'm going to tour the place. I've seen (the facilities) before. I've always been a big Pitt fan growing up. I have a lot of friends down there. It's definitely good. It'll be exciting."
Though he's got a few options, it's still too early for Dietz to map out any official visits.
"I'm not sure yet," Dietz added. "I have to sit down and see what days might be available, see which ones might work best."
