One emerging prospect is offensive lineman Jack Maly from Regis Jesuit in Colorado. A three-year starter, Maly has progressed by leaps and bounds since last year and he is reaping the benefits from a recruiting standpoint.
"Last year I played at 225," he says. "Now I stand 6-4 and weigh 265. But this weight has been good weight with the help of Bryan Cash and MaxMuscle, because it has come with athleticism. I have also dropped my 40 time to 5.0 and my pro agility to 4.4."
Maly also says he has made significant gains in the weight room. "I have gotten much help in this regard from Loren Landow. In the weight room my numbers have made tremendous strides in the past six months. Loren Landow has helped me with the fast twitch muscles while I have worked on power with Ron Garofalo, a world champion power lifter. Coach Garofalo and Virtus Gym has helped me become who I am today. I started lifting with him in 8th grade and he has constantly helped me with my physical and mental maturity. A few weeks ago I competed at the Raw National Championships for powerlifting and I took 2nd. All of these pieces have shaped me and I would not be the same person or player if it wasn't for these people."
On a recruiting front, Maly has had a busy summer. He says, "I have made three trips out east, meeting with several Ivy League schools. I camped at Harvard, Dartmouth and Holy Cross. In the Midwest, I have visited Air Force, South Dakota State, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Colorado State. I hold offers from South Dakota State, South Dakota, Northern Colorado and Idaho State."
With the season right around the corner, Maly adds, "I have stepped into a major leadership role during this offseason and look forward to growing in that way. I am looking forward to my senior season with Regis Jesuit and I am excited for what lies ahead at the next level."
Academically, Maly has a 3.57 GPA and is a member of the National Honor Society.
