Terps Want Chroniger? Other DeMatha Updates
Now that another WCAC championship award is in the school trophy case, DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor has turned his attention toward getting scholarships for his players.
Here's the quick report:
* Maryland is interested in Tommy Chroniger at safety. Chroniger, the Stags' starting quarterback the past two seasons, started at safety as a sophomore and then again in DeMatha's two playoff victories this year.
"I talked to Ralph [Friedgen] on Thursday about Tommy. Ralph called me. I don't know what his needs are, but Ralph says, 'We're very, very interested.' I don't know what 'very, very' means. ... Maryland wants him as a safety. He will go as a safety. He doesn't care. He just wants to go to a bigger school. His future may be more as that than a 5-11 quarterback."
* Tight end-defensive end Jeremiah Mathis, who had a terrific game in the 34-7 victory over Good Counsel, told McGregor's wife, Brenda, that he has a scholarship offer from Rutgers. Mathis, who is 6-3 and 248 pounds, also holds offers from Syracuse, Akron, Eastern Michigan, Ohio and Liberty.
* Linebacker Raheem Cardwell, who previously committed to Syracuse, is waiting to see who the Orange hire as their next coach.
* Linebacker Derrick Lakins, whose father played at Navy, is interested in going to a military academy and is receiving interest from Army.
* Offensive guard Calvin McDowney, who lost nearly 100 pounds before the season, made first-team all-WCAC. "That in itself was tremendous," McGregor said. "Now we're going for a scholarship. He'll get a scholarship. It's just a matter where."
