Need to Know: Tim Foley

After a very strong sophomore season, Rio Rancho corner Tim Foley is ready to establish himself as one of New Mexico's best.

Last season, playing at Rio Rancho High School, cornerback Tim Foley established himself as a player to watch in New Mexico.  The 5-9 165 pounder gained All-Metro honors during his sophomore campaign for the 8-4 Rams on the strength of four interceptions and more than 30 tackles.  On top of his play as a defensive back, Foley is a very solid punt and kick returner.

To build on last year's very successful sophomore season, Foley has been working extremely hard this summer improve his game.  Self reporting a 4.46 forty yard dash, Foley has still concentrated on improving his speed this offseason.  This past spring Foley ran on the Rio Rancho track team, helping the medley relay make it to state.  This summer Foley has continued his hard work, training at Parisi speed school, attending Competitive Edge Sports in an Atlanta and taking part in multiple combines.  Foley also took part in the New Mexico State 7 on 7.  Foley has also been working hard in the weightroom.  The 165 pound corner is benching 210 pounds and squatting 320 pounds.  These increased lifting numbers should help with the rigors of the upcoming football season.

Although very early in the recruiting process, the young speedster cites New Mexico, New Mexico State, Boise State, Colorado and Baylor as schools that he is interested in.  Regarding playing college football, Foley states, "my goals are to go somewhere I can play quickly and get a great education."  If Foley continues to improve, gains some size and puts together two more quality seasons, he may see his goal come to fruition.
