Mandeville Safety Is Another Green Wave Visitor
Foyil, 6-foot-4 and 220-pounds was named to the District 5-5A All-District team as a defensive back after totalling 112 tackles and snatching 2 interceptions as a senior but will move to the front seven as a collegian.
District 5-5A includes schools from the New Orleans suburbs and small towns on the Northshore and is one of the most competitive 5-A districts in the state.
A TI representative caught up with Ace Wednesday. Here's the take.
TI: Ace, let me get your vital statistics - height? weight? 40 time?
AF: I'm 6-foot-4, 220-pounds. Run a 4.6 40. My max on the bench press is 310 pounds. I don't squat but I powerclean 340 pounds.
TI: As far as recruiting goes, who are oyou hearing from the most, who do you have the most interest in?
AF: I'm mostly talking to Tulane, Arkansas State and Nicholls State, All three have already offered me a scholarship. I think my coach may have talked to McNeese, but I haven't heard from them directly.
TI: Have you set dates for any visits?
AF: I'm going to Tulane this weekend and Arkansas State next weekend.
TI: Do you have a favorite?
AF: No favorites.
TI: I understand that you played both offense and defense, give us your season stats for both sides of the ball.
AF: I only played tight end in one game, one of our tight ends was hurt. I mostly played defense. For the season I had 64 solo tackles and 48 assists, 112 altogether. Let's see there were 5 tackles for losses, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions and I forced two fumbles in 10 games. We didn't go to the playoffs.
TI: What did you do last summer as far as camps and combines go?
AF: I went to the Ole Miss and USM football camps.
TI: How did Mandeville High do last season?
AF: Our record was 4-6.
TI: Have you spoken to recruiters about what position they project you to play in college?
AF: I project as either an outside linebacker or a defensive end.
TI: And you're already academically qualified?
AF: I took the test in December and got a 21. My overall GPA is 3.3.
TI: What assistant coach is recruiting you for Tulane?
AF: Coach Garrett Chachere, the linebacker coach.
TI: Ace, what are you looking for in a college?
AF: I'm looking basically for a good academic program that will help me after college. And a good football program. Location's important, too.
