FinestPreps has been hitting you hard with the top high school football prospects in the state of Pennsylvania!!
Today we take a look at another rising prospect from the Keystone State!
This gifted prospect stands at 6’4″, 210 pounds and plays for the Gateway Gators (Monroeville, Pa.)!
Who’s the latest prospect from Gateway you should keep your eyes peeled for this fall?
Look no further than Cody Conway–a scrappy defensive end for head coach Terry Smith’s program.
When taking a look at his highlight tape below–you’ll see a player who is oozing with potential at the defensive end position.
Blessed with long arms, Conway has a non-stop motor and is relentless in his pursuit of the rock.
Whenever you see him get within striking distance of an offensive player, he’ll shoot his long arms out and corral them to the ground.
He’s able to maintain his ground when being blocked and can still grind it out in order to make the tackle.
As a junior last year–he racked up four sacks and 28 tackles (14 solos, 14 assists) for the Gators.
Currently listed at 6’4″, 210 pounds, it’s clear that Conway must put on some weight in order to play football at the collegiate level.
College coaches have contacted him and told him they would like to see him get his weight up to 220 or 225 pounds.
He’s being recruited as a defensive end and tight end by several Division I-A schools across the country.
Conway doesn’t currently have any scholarship offers but plenty of colleges are showing interest.
Temple, Akron, Miami (Oh.), WVU, Pitt, and Syracuse are just a few of the schools that have contacted the Gateway standout.
Look for his recruitment process to heat up sometime in the future!
