6-5, 235-pound Zack McCray plays defensive end and tight end for head coach Jeff Woody and the Brookville Bees (Lynchburg, VA) varsity football squad. McCray, who has been verbally offered by six Division 1A program, is one of the top players in the state of Virginia’s 2010 class.
“If you ask why he is so good, you see him physically with the way he looks and also with the way he works,” Woody said. “Those things are paired with the performance he put together last year. He caught passes and looked real athletic doing so. At defensive end, when he does it right he is pretty good and he is only going to get better.”
McCray has joined his cousin, Logan Thomas, on the recruiting trail this off-season and has taken a number of unofficial visits. He discusses a possible early college decision, among other things, in this “Q&A.”
