McQuaid senior tight end/defensive end Demetrius Breedlove has five offers to play college football, including four on scholarship.
Cornell University, like other teams in the Ivy League do not offer athletic scholarships. The Big Red, who play in the NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision (formerly known as I-AA) certainly remain among Breedlove’s choices. The rising senior plans to attend a camp at Cornell this month.
Breedlove, listed at 6-foot-3 inches and 245 pounds, said he has scholarship offers from Syracuse, Lafayette (Pa.), Army and Lafayette, a FCS team in Pennsylvania.
“I really don’t know where I want to go,” Breedlove said. “I just want to go somewhere where I’m comfortable, can excel academically and athletically.
“I’m still trying to find a place where I’m comfortable, that’s the big thing.”
Breedlove, a member of the 2014 Democrat and Chronicle All-Greater Rochester team, had eight sacks as a defensive end position and two touchdown catches last fall.
“Some want me to play offense, some want me to play defense,” he said.
U.S. Under-19 tryouts: There is still one huge cut to be made, but four All-Section V lacrosse players are in the running to make the United States Men’s National Under-19 team roster.
This national team is being put together for the 2016 FIL Men’s U19 World Championship in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.
Pittsford long-stick defenseman Jared Conners is a rising senior and among the area players in the pool of 50 to make the 23-man under-19 national team. Webster Thomas midfielder Kevin Hill, Pittsford midfielder Brandon Barker and Penfield goalie Willie Klan just completed their senior high school seasons.
Hill is a Penn State-recruit. Barker and Klan are headed to Ohio State, while Conners gave a verbal commitment to play at Virginia.
