Intemann Still Working Hard

Though he verbally committed to Wake Forest several months ago Dylan Intemann is not taking it easy. The 6-5, 300-pound offensive lineman from Wake Forest-Rolesville is making the most of the summer leading up to his final year of high school, and thus, his last year of high school football.

DeaconSports caught up with the three-star lineman, currently ranked the No. 42 offensive guard in America by, and learned that Intemann is progressing quite well. His bench press max is up to 325 pounds and he can now squat around 580. Those are impressive numbers for a rising high school senior. His 40-time is holding steady around a 5.0, meaning he hasn't lost a step even as he has bulked up.

"I've just been working out with my team," Dylan Intemann said. "I went to the Shrine Bowl Combine and got picked for the Shrine Bowl practice. That was good. Other than that I've just been lifting and working out with my team."

Intemann said he remains solidly committed to Wake Forest. He has been keeping in contact with coach Russ, who recruits Intemann's area. "We're pretty cool," he said of his relationship with coach Russ. "He's a cool guy. I like him a lot."

The last time Intemann was in Winston-Salem was for Wake Forest's spring game, so he will obviously want to make it back to his future college home before too long. He doesn't have any plans to go back to Wake in the immediate future, but he will be a regular on campus during football season.

"I'm definitely going to go to some of the games this year. I don't know when my official visit will be yet," he said. "I've been talking to a couple of the recruits. Me and Colin Summers are friends. I've known him for a while."

Summers, of course, is a Class of 2010 offensive lineman from Broughton High School in Raleigh that signed with Wake Forest in February. He will be joining the Deacons program a year earlier than Intemann, but it will make Intemann's adjustment to college life that much easier once he does, especially considering the two play the same position and will be spending a lot of time together.

For now, Intemann's focus is on his high school season. One of the reasons he made an early decision was so he could enjoy all of the things most high schoolers do as seniors.

"I'm hoping this year my team will get the Cap Seven (conference) championship," he said. "Then we'd go to states."
