DL Steve Cline Update

He may be playing for a different team, but <b>Steve Cline</b> is still making an impact. The 6-3, 275-pound Florida TE/DT was forced to move to Boynton Beach to make sure he could play football his senior season after it was determined he couldn't follow his former coach back to his former school.

But regardless of the circumstances surrounding Cline's move to Dwyer, it's worked out great for all involved.

"He's having a pretty good season, with 45 tackles, 18 for a loss, 7 sacks and 2 forced fumbles through 8 games," Steve's brother Brian told Dawgman.com. "Dwyer is 6-2, with a big district game remaining. They can't win the district, but are still in good shape for post season play at either 8-2 or 7-3."

His season is drawing attention from some big-time schools, and even bigger ones apparently are looming in the background. "The calls from Kansas State, Iowa State, Rutgers, Wake Forest and UConn keep rolling in," Brian said. "We also hear through Steve's current head coach that Georgia is interested and from his former defensive coach at Pope (John Paul II) that Miami is interested and have indicated that Steve should just be patient with them at this time."

Another team Steve will have to be patient with is Washington, who is breaking down film of Cline right now. Brian hopes that his younger brother will show the Husky coaches what they need to see to offer him a full scholarship. "I sent Steve's game v. Martin County," said Brian. "He had 7 tackles, 5 for a loss and 3 sacks in the game as well as a number of big yardage springing blocks from TE. Hopefully this will be enough to get the job done. We'll have to wait and see."

The Wildcats aren't pussyfooting around, as they have Steve already set up for an official visit to Manhattan on December 8th. That is the only official visit Cline has set up so far.
