Foose Names A Leader

Every once in a while, you come across an individual with enormous size and the foot speed to go along with it. At 6-foot-6 310 lbs., Jr. Dan Foose is that type of athlete. This terrific young guard out of Paramus Catholic H.S. (NJ) has a bright future on the offensive line of the prestigious D1A university of his choosing.

Early on, Rutgers seems to have positioned themselves quite well.

" Rutgers is my current favorite", Dan stated. He continued, "I love everything about the program. I was there a couple days ago for spring practice, and although it was the first day, it was still intense. My parents got an academic tour and loved the place as well. I watched guys like Anthony Davis and saw how hard he worked on every drill. The players were real friendly. They talked to me and my mom for over an hour. I was impressed."

Dan Foose also mentioned, "I love the intensity of Coach Butler, the philosophy of Coach Schiano and the great teaching of coach Flood. Flood is the type of guy who can get you to the next level. I feel that all of those guys really care about the kids they recruit."

Dan is a terrific athlete and his ability to move makes him a game-changer on the high school level. "My coach likes me at guard as opposed to tackle because it gives me the opportunity to pull and get to the outside. I love to run block and pancake guys. I am aggressive, always finish off blocks, and like to get my backs into the end zone", said Foose.

The 1st Team all-NJILLC selection also played defense where he amassed over 40 tackles and 5 sacks in limited time. His quickness and versatility truly separate Dan from much of the 2010 offensive line talent.

Although Rutgers is currently his only written offer, Danny Foose has received verbals from 4 other schools which he neglected to mention until he got the paperwork. The institutions heaviest on his trail are Penn St., Boston College, Connecticut, Syracuse, Virginia, Miami, Ohio St., Alabama, Tennessee and Maryland to name a few. The team that gets the opportunity to attain his services will have a terrific coaching staff, a comfortable location and prepare him for the next level.

This off-season, Dan plans to participate at the Nike Camp as well as camp at Rutgers while preparing for his upcoming season. Foose enjoys lifting weights 5 times per week with his team and also has two personal trainers. One trainer works on his upper body and the other, his lower extremities.

Dan hopes to declare his collegiate choice prior to his senior year of high school in order to be able to concentrate on the season at hand. SOR will keep you in tuned.
