Mulcahy brushes up with the best

Richy Mulcahy is a 6-4, 265-pound lineman from Mill Creek (Wash.) Jackson, and while the focus on campus has been around his teammate, Craig Chambers, and Chambers' verbal commitment to the University of Washington, Mulcahy got a chance to rub elbows with the state's best this afternoon at Montlake for a feature on ESPN with recruiting analyst Tom Lemming. He was one of only two linemen to get picked for this prestigious event.

"Me, Craig and CJ (Marsh) went down to U-Dub," Mulcahy told Dawgman.com tonight about his day on campus. "We went to the football offices and said hi to Coach (Keith) Gilbertson. We were told to go there to get directions, so he let us know where to go. We went to the stadium, and there we saw Tom Lemming there. Johnny DuRocher was there, and David Lewis too. Brett Thielke was there. (Tahj) Bomar was there for a little bit, Todd Basler and Kyle Trew was there too. There was one other player there, I can't remember his name."

For Lemming, most of the focus was on Chambers, according to Richy. "It looked like a lot of it was for Craig," he said. "They took a picture of him with Reggie Williams. That was pretty cool."

The players filled out questionaires, then Lemming talked to them as a group and also to them individually. "Then he took pictures of us in our uniforms, first individually, then a couple of shots as a group," said Mulcahy. Richy thought that some of the info Lemming compliled would be on ESPN, but some of it would be for his recruiting publication, Prep Football Report.

Richy enjoyed his time on campus. "It was fun, because there was about a half-hour where we just got a chance to hang out and talk to the other players," he said. "It was great to meet guys that I've been reading about on the net. (Johnny) DuRocher was a funny guy. He was probably the leader, in terms of talking. His quarterback tendencies came through."

JHS has seen it's share of college coaches come and go through head football coach Joel Vincent's office during the month of May. "Stanford came by to pick up my transcripts," Richy said. "It sounds like have an interest. Notre Dame has been there. U-Dub came by on the first day. Washington State, Oregon State... Nebraska too."

Track was taking up most of Mulcahy's time this spring, but now it's back to the gridiron. "Track is over now," he said. "I'm going to the Oregon NIKE camp, then I'll stay the next day for the Oregon mini-camp. Then I'm going to the U-Dub camp and then our team camp at Western (Washington)." Richy ended up throwing the shot 50-1 and the javelin 147 feet, an improvement of nearly 20 feet this spring.
