Future Black Knight's season is kicking off

Army commit Andrew McLean season is well underway, as the 6-foot-3, 240-pound defense end is off to a strong start with a total of three sacks in Louisville (Colo.) Broomfield High School's first three games of the season. "One sack a game is not bad, but I am trying to step it up more, because I know I can do a lot better," says McLean when discussing his performance thus far this season.

Presently Broomfield is 2-1 and have their homecoming on Friday against Littleton High School.

The defensive end prospect, who is equally as effective against the pass and run, is also keeping his eyes on his future team, the Army Black Knights.

"I've watched every game and it's fun to watch the offense when they get it going and the defense is struggling," declares McLean. "But they've definitely made improvements from what I've seen in the little technical things."

Needless to say, Colorado native has stayed in contact with the Army coaching staff and finds himself rooting for the guys in the Black & Gold.

"I actually spoke to Coach Guyader today and as usual, it went great," he adds. "We caught up on how both our seasons were coming along. He was also sharing with me that the cadet had midterms this week, but also getting for football once the test were over. I told him I can't wait to get started there."

So can he visualize himself wearing the Black & Gold? "Yes I have and I looked at Michie Stadium ... and it was cool to see it, because I've been there and I've been on that field, but there was no one there when I was there," chuckles McLean, when referring to his unofficial visit to West Point.

"But then to see the stadium full of Army fans ... man, I can't wait to be playing on that field and to be playing where the cadet before me have played. It's an honor for me."

Future Teammates

McLean is also well aware that the Black Knights also have a commitment from 3-star offensive lineman Patrick Joseph and indicated that he hopes the two connect very soon.

"We haven't spoke yet, but hopefully very soon ... especially through Facebook," he shared.

It still has been determine if McLean will enter the academy as a direct admit or via the USMAPS.
