McNamara DB Nico Law lists Maryland, Virginia
Nico Law never played organized football until he reached high school. Now, after two years on the JV and one on the varsity, McNamara's rising senior defensive back is trying to decide between 16 scholarship offers.
"My coach told me I should have a lot more to come," Law said. "All I'm focused on is getting better. I'm looking for a place to play, a place where I can be a better man and a better football player. I don't want to be just a good football player, I want to be an elite athlete."
Law, who is 6 feet 3 and 190 pounds, has narrowed his choices to Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Rutgers, Illinois, Cincinnati, Iowa and Louisville.
Having so many options shows how far Law has come.
"My parents never let me play football when I was younger," Law said. "I was always like a mama's boy. I was real skinny and small. Even if you look at me now, I only have like five percent body fat on me. I'm very muscular.
Even after talking his way into being able to play as a freshman, Law was far from the player he is now.
"My freshman year, my coach told me how much I could benefit from football but I didn't study the playbook or any of that," he said.
The following season, however, Law was a two-way standout on the junior varsity at wide receiver and linebacker. He slightly dislocated his shoulder last summer but was cleared late in the preseason and made an immediate impact in a scrimmage against Suitland.
"I got in for two plays and made two straight big hits," Law said. "From there on, I just started."
