Local QB Picks Temple

Ace Insider correspondent B.J. Koubaroulis with the news:

Oakton quarterback Chris Coyer orally committed to Temple on Tuesday, choosing the Owls over offers from Ohio and Central Michigan.

The lefthander led the Cougars to the Virginia AAA Division 6 Concorde District and Northern Region titles this past fall.

A 6-3, 221-pound senior, Coyer threw for more than 1,000 yards and rushed for more than 1,000 yards and scored 32 touchdowns this fall before he was rushed off the field in an ambulance during a season-ending Virginia AAA semifinal loss to eventual state champion Oscar Smith. He fractured his C-7 vertebrae, according to his father, Chris.

Coyer, who is expected to be cleared to play with the Cougars' basketball team by the end of the month, locked up his football future on Tuesday because "it was the right place for him," his father said. "He's in a great spot."

Welcome to Temple, Chris.
The 38th largest school in the country and the 6th largest educator of professionals in the nation.
Great choice.
260,000 alumni living within a 2 hours drive of the stadium, plus 33,000 full-time students just dying for a reason to go to the football games.
That reason: Winning.
You'll make a lot of plays there and win a lot of games and, in the process, fill the best football stadium in the country with its Prodigal Son fans.
