Good Counsel’s (Wheaton, MD) 4-star wide receiver/defensive end Drew Gloster helped Good Counsel to a 31-14 victory over Mount St. Joseph’s. All four team captains scored in the contest, including Gloster’s 92-yard kick-off return for a score. Not bad for a 6-4, 225-pound player who projects as a tight end on the next level.

Up next for Good Counsel is a battle with Robinson (Fairfax, VA). Gloster and the rest of his teammates are pumped up about the game, which is this Friday at Good Counsel.

“The Washington Post showed us a lot of love in ranking us #1,” said Gloster, who also had three tackles and three receptions for 45 yards in the victory last week. “Robinson’s ranked #4. They are maybe the top team in Virginia, except for Percy Harvin’s team. They have a great running back in Lucas Caparelli. It’s going to come down to which team does the little things. All I know is that there’s no way we’re going to let them come in and beat us in our home.”

Gloster has been so focused on his senior season that he didn’t remember that college coaches could start calling on September 1st.

“Actually, I forgot about September 1st,” Gloster said. “I had a lot of calls that day. Coach Hite and I talked. He was just touching base with me, asking me if I felt the same way about them. He asked how our team was looking and told me to watch them on TV [on Sunday night]. I did watch it and I was like wow, I could be playing for them next year.”

One school still stands out above the rest for Gloster’s signature.

“Virginia Tech is still my favorite,” Gloster said. “I still want my parents to get down there to see the campus. If they like it, then I’d commit hopefully.”

Are there any possible dates he’s considering to visit Tech?

“Right now, I’m just concentrating on my season,” Gloster said. “I don’t want to hold off, but I want my parents to see the campus before I do anything.”

Gloster is also keeping open the option of taking all five official visits. If he does, he mentioned the schools likely to receive them.

“If I decide to take all five official visits, it would be to Florida, Georgia, Miami, Virginia Tech and either Oklahoma or Maryland,” Gloster said.
