Cole McCrary’s game is simple. His key attributes are effort, motor, and passion. “I have a high motor and play with a chip on my shoulder. My will to be around the ball every play separates me from other recruits at my position,” said McCrary. The 6’2″ 230 pound two-way athlete has used these skills to dominate at the High School level.
McCrary was nominated as a Senior Captain and helped lead the Woodrow Wilson (Dallas, TX) Wildcats on both offense playing Tight End and defense playing Defensive End. He was a 3x All-District player who finished his career with 17.5 sacks, 15 Quarterback hurries, 151 total tackles, 30 tackles for a loss, 5 forced fumbles, 4 pass knockdowns, 2 blocked Field Goals, 1 interception, 9 touchdowns, 400 receiving yards, and 30 receptions. His Senior season was extremely special because he played with a broken hand in a cast and still found ways to make an impact. “I improved my game a lot, became a better leader, and improved my weaknesses,” he said.
McCrary is now ready to take his talents to the next level. Due to his play last season, he has more than 10 offers on the table from schools including McNeese state, Mount Union, Texas A&M Commerce, Harding, West Texas A&M, and Sioux Falls. There will surely be more offers on their way as well. “I don’t know where I’m going to go yet, but my goal is to be a difference maker for a team. Being Freshman of the year would be awesome,” he said. Wherever he ends up, his effort, motor, and passion will surely help him make a name for himself at the Collegiate level.
