NY QB attracting interest of major schools

The state of New York has not been known to produce many elite level quarterbacks over the recent years, but the class of 2007 will feature two top-notch signal callers in Dave Legree and Mike Paulus.

Dave Legree, a 6-foot-4, 210 pound, quarterback, from South Shore High in Brooklyn, N.Y. will generate plenty of interest in 2006.
“I picked up my first offer from Toledo after one of my biggest games last season. I completed three passes for 90 yards and led the team on a scoring drive in the final minutes to win the game,” Legree said. “I am also interested in Notre Dame, Virginia, Penn State, Syracuse, Rutgers, Boston College, and Wisconsin.”

South Shore head coach Tommy Salvato also thinks Legree’s talents will put him in a position to be a successful collegiate quarterback.

“He is a real heads up player who is extremely competitive. We run the run and shoot offense, and Dave is able to move around in the pocket very well and avoid the pressure. He is also a guy that can get outside the pocket and make some things happen,” Coach Salvato said.

Legree has been to Rutgers for a junior day event, and he currently has one more junior day trip planned.

“I went to Rutgers in early December. It was a good experience. We went to the basketball game, saw the weight-room, and got to check out the football field.”

“I am also going to a junior day at Syracuse on January 18. I am really looking forward to that trip. Syracuse just signed my teammate Parker Cantey. I get the feeling that he will be working on me to go to there,” Legree observed.

Legree plans to spread out and see some of the country while participating on the summer camp circuit.

“I am going to the Texas football camp, I am going to the Oklahoma football camp, and I am definitely going to be at the Notre Dame football camp,” Legree said.

Judging by Legree’s camp schedule, it is easy to see that he is a prospect who is interested in a wide variety of schools, but he doubts that he will be playing too far away from home.

“I grew up a Texas fan, but I know they will be looking at their Texas options first, and recruiting a ton of quarterbacks nationally, so I will probably not go that far away from home. I am interested in a lot of programs, but in the end it will all come down to what is going to be best for me and my family,” Legree stated.

As a junior, Legree threw for 1483 yards and 15 touchdowns earning him All-Conference, All-NYC, and All-Borough honors.
