CFC 100 recruit NCAA bound (VIDEO)

Just when CFC 100 Norvell McGlaun was getting set to return to the Herman Green Griffins of the Windsor and Essex County Secondary School Athletic Association (WECSSAA), opportunity knocked.

Late last month, the 6’0, 307 pound defensive lineman from Windsor, Ontario received an offer from NCAA Division 1 team, Indiana State Sycamores.

It didn’t take very long for McGlaun to make his decision.

“I planned on coming back for an extra semester for the Herman Green Griffins but God opened a door for me at a time when it was least expected,” recalled the CFC 100 defensive lineman. “I took my first NCAA division 1 offer and committed.”

“I had a lot of work to do within the span of a week but I got it done with the help of Simon Lasagna and Coach Harry Lumley (Green Griffins Head Coach).  After a couple of phone calls with the coaching staff at Indiana State, it just felt comfortable because they want me to see the field early. I originally didn’t want to commit, knowing that I could pick up more offers in the next season but with help from my awesome Green Griffin coaching staff I committed.”

McGlaun feels that he has a lot to contribute to the Sycamores.

“I think as a big nose tackle I will be able to transfer a lot of leadership and energy in the middle of the defence, which will hopefully get the rest of the team going,” explained the CFC 100 standout.

In addition to the Green Griffins, McGlaun has previously played for the Essex Ravens of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL). He has received several honours during his career including Lineman of the Year (twice), All-City Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.

With his commitment to the Sycamores, it’s a dream realized for McGlaun.

“My dream has always been to play in an NCAA Division 1 game and to get a chance to do that as a freshman is simply a blessing,” said the Ontario standout.

It is not lost on the CFC 100 defensive lineman all the support, encouragement and assistance he has received in the quest to reach his ultimate gridiron goal.

“I just want to take the time to thank Mr. Simon Lasagna, Coach Harry Lumley and the rest of the Herman staff for their awesome training, support and of course coaching over the years,” expressed McGlaun.  “I also want to give a special thanks to my training family, Jake Francis and Marcus Kentner for always pushing me and having me work with King Performance Training.”
