Cadogan Ready for Upcoming Season

Jr. Sherard Cadogan of Camden Catholic (NJ) is apart of a 3-head monster along with Joe Brennan and Terrence Casper, who was highlighted a couple weeks ago. The talent of this explosive DE/TE led to a 1st Team All- South Jersey selection as well as interest from many schools in the region. SOR contacted Sherard for an update on his recruitment.

"Recruiting is going good. Penn St., Rutgers, Stanford and Virginia are showing me the most interest and I currently have an offer from Pitt", stated Sherard. Currently he claims no clear leader. Sherard Cadogan's rapidly growing list of suitors may be due to his 12 sacks on defense, and 35 catches, 481 yards receiving and 6 TD's on offense in 2008. At 6'3 227 lbs., Cadogan has the measurable to play on either side of the ball in college.

As for Rutgers interest, he claims, "I went down for a visit and a game. I really liked the facilities and enjoyed the student section. The fans were crazy. I enjoyed it". Facilities, academics and the state of the football program at selection time are essential factors in his next level institutional choice.

Sherard led his team to a 9-2 overall record last season until running into a wall called St. Joe's. "We had a good year. We lost to Montvale in the playoffs. They had some very talented linebackers and running backs which proved to be too much, but we plan to do better next year with a lot of guys coming back", mentioned Sherard. Cadogan was a huge part of the Camden Catholic's success this past season while displaying the dependability college coaches are looking for on the next level.

Sherard stated, "I am dependable and am a leader who takes pride in helping others around me". He further mentioned, "I am aggressive, like to play down field and attack the quarterback on defense. As for offense, I truly enjoy catching the football".

Not only is Sherard a talented football player, but he excels in the classroom as well. He carries a 3.89 GPA and is a standout at playing the guitar and base. The coordination it takes to play football can be attributed to the vast amount of rhythm it takes to play the guitar. This young man is truly a student of the arts.

Sherard hopes to declare his next- level destination by the end of the summer after taking selective visits. SOR will keep you informed as to the state of his recruitment.
