HS Senior Season

 

Lester McCorn is rounding out his career at Detroit Country Day School where McCorn handled starting cornerback duties, often pitting himself up against the best wide receiver from the opposing team, as well as kick/punt return duties. Detroit Country Day School finished their season with a 7-2 record, qualifying for the 2018 Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 4 Playoffs. They are scheduled to host a first round game against Harrison HS. Keep an eye out for McCorn as he hopes to complete his senior season and depart DCDS with a State Title, which every high school senior football player aims for. 

 

Mr. Cornholio has had a rough senior year at Don Bosco Prep -- after experiencing immense team success during his freshman season with a 9-3 campaign, Don Bosco Prep has gone through somewhat of a rebuild of their own. Nice thing about a rebuild is that Cornholio got to see a lot of playing time after sitting out much of his freshman year. A growth spurt helped Cornholio attain status on the football team and his physical ability/football IQ has responded very well -- but the team has only finished 5-4. Don Bosco Prep will play against Delbarton the following week in the quarterfinals of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association Non-Public Group 4 Football playoffs.

McCorn/Cornholio Update

 

There has been a breaking news out of the Lester McCorn camp. After a disappointing 13-10 loss to Harrison High School in the first round of the MHSAA Division 4 Playoffs where McCorn had an interception and recorded eight tackles along with three pass deflections - McCorn was distraught by the disappointing end to his senior season of high school and tweeted out some questionable things. However, those tweets were shortly deleted before it became viral. Over the weekend, news broke out from his family that Lester McCorn had apologized for his actions and seems to have verbally committed to a NCAA D-I Football Program. More details to come out as they are shared with the public. 

 

In other news -- Mr. Cornholio and the rest of his Don Bosco Prep teammates had a nice weekend off after a long, grueling season. There were a number of players-only meetings where Cornholio, one of the few seniors on the team rallied the team and held numerous team-building activities. It is Cornholio's hope that this relaxing weekend will be what DBP needs in order to formulate its own run through their NJSIAA playoffs slate. Mr. Cornholio has not made a decision yet on where/which school he plans on taking his talents to as he is continuing to field offers and talk to people around the nation.

McCorn/Cornholio Update #2

 

Lester McCorn's high school football career has concluded last week, but that doesn't mean that McCorn is done with high school football. There have been rumors that McCorn received an invitation to play in the Under Armour High School All-America Game. This is a prestigious honor for the McCorn family and the family intends on bringing the whole flock to Florida for the annual January high school football game. At the same time, there are also rumors that McCorn was seen in Florida over the weekend touring a college - while we know that McCorn seems to have already verbal committed - we cannot ascertain that this college was where McCorn was planning on playing his college football at. 

 

Mr. Cornholio and his Don Bosco Prep were back on the football field last Saturday -- the Ironman came out victorious in the first round of the NJSIAA playoffs, winning 42-22 over Delbarton. Mr. Cornholio had a big role in the passing attack, catching 3 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown as the team ran all over Delbarton. Don Bosco Prep now moves on to the Semifinals of the playoff, where they will go up against #1 ranked and long-time rival Bergen Catholic. A win over BC would be icing on the cake of Cornholio's senior season. With the NCAA offseason approaching soon, Cornholio will have to make a formal announcement of which NCAA school he seems to have decided to take his talents to.

McCorn/Cornholio Update #3

 

Lester McCorn is one of the few college prospects planning on playing in the S10 Army All-American Game. The last update was mistakenly advertised by the family as McCorn participating in the Under Armour High School All-American game -- this high school football spectacle has since then been taken over by the U.S. Army. McCorn has already proved himself as a highly-touted recruit who can back up his talk. Rumors have leaked through the grapevines that McCorn has accepted $1 Million Dollars from the University of Miami to redshirt through S9 along with earning some training hours on campus with the intention of fully enrolling at the university this upcoming season. This will be fully confirmed sometime throughout the game as high school players declare their intent to play. 

 

Mr. Cornholio was one of the few active high school football players remaining in the nation -- his Don Bosco Prep Ironman were in the Semifinals of the NJSIAA Nonpublic Group 4 Football playoffs with an intense matchup against longtime rival Bergen Catholic. The Ironman were outclassed by Bergen Catholic by the final score of 35-17 after holding on to a 10-7 halftime lead. Cornholio contributed on special teams as well as several critical catches to advance the chains - but couldn't find pay dirt at all. This was a somewhat disappointing end to Cornholio's career. However, Cornholio seems ready to move on to greener pastures of the NCAA. There are talks that Cornholio has already accepted a redshirt scholarship at the tail end of S9 and is ready to hit the ground running with a full scholarship in S10.

McCorn/Cornholio Update #4

 

The dust storm from recruitment saga is finally over and the landscape picture is clear once again with every high school football prospect having declared their intentions to play at the college of their own choosing. 

 

For cornerback Lester McCorn, it was the University of Miami. McCorn had gotten contacted by several colleges with varying degrees of interest (Alabama, Michigan, Texas, USC), but McCorn was compelled by The U, it’s history, swag and reputation for developing excellent defensive backs. Due to McCorn starting his recruitment process early, he was able to get a significant head start over his fellow freshman classmates in terms of training in a strong recruiting class for Miami as the program attempts to crawl back up the totem pole. McCorn projects to start at one of the cornerback positions for Miami and should make an immediate impact.

 

Sharing many resemblances and parallels to McCorn, not to mention the distant family ties— Mr. Cornholio, on the other hand, did not go to the University of Miami and chose to forge his own path to the EFL. Cornholio put on a strong showing in the Army All-American High School Football Game as an exclamation point to his school that worked diligently to recruit him over other programs. Cornholio wasn’t as coveted as McCorn for some reason, but from the looks of it, Cornholio could be just as good, if not better than McCorn. So... where did he end up going? None other than the University of Michigan! This was a dream come true for the hybrid wide receiver/tight end and Cornholio is looking to make an impact on the field from Day One onwards.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #1

 

Lester McCorn has been having fun as a member of the Miami Hurricanes football team and has no regrets about his decision, except for one part... McCorn came to Miami fully expecting playing time, ladies, booze, and wins. Well, this has all proved to be true, except for the latter. McCorn has assumed the #1 CB duties on Miami and has fully embraced it with open arms. In the S10 Opener, Miami lost to Michigan by the final score of 27-7 despite holding a 7-3 lead at one point. In the second game, Miami bolted out to a 17-0 lead against USC only to blow it in a 26-20 defeat. McCorn has made an impact on both games, recording 10 tackles in the opener and 6 tackles along with an interception against USC. Miami isn't expected to be a threat this season, but McCorn fully expects the team to not blow leads and has given the offense a hard time about this. We shall see if the Hurricanes can turn things around this season before it becomes too late. 

 

Mr. Cornholio has made an immediate impact upon his arrival in Ann Arbor -- his exemplary work ethic has seen Cornholio shoot up the wide receiver depth chart up to the #2 spot, playing across Julian Isola. Cornholio has gotten his share of touches, but perhaps his biggest impact has been in terms of boosting Isola's production. The threat of Cornholio has forced defenders to play honest in both the running and the passing game, which has freed up Isola to make more plays, as well as Michigan's young running back duo of Emery Park and Razor Ramon. Cornholio has huge aspirations for himself as he is hopeful to earn the NCAA Freshman of the Year award, but Cornholio has verbally stated that he would rather see the team win over Corn having big games albeit in a losing effort. By the looks of it, this guy may be the biggest signing of Michigan's S10 recruiting class.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #2

 

Lester McCorn has finally tasted the sweet taste that is victory last week, as the University of Miami picked up their first win of the season by defeating Notre Dame. Even though McCorn’s two-game interception streak was snapped (then again, kinda hard to get an interception if the opposing team only passes 13 times...) McCorn made a huge impact on special teams, picking up his first touchdown of the season on a breath-taking 48-yard punt return. McCorn instantly got the attention of several EFL GMs with that play — but it’ll be a long time before they’re able to have the chance to get their hands on the rising young cornerback. 

 

In other news, Mr. Cornholio has made strides while carving out his role on the dynamic Michigan Wolverines offense that has shown to be unbeatable so far. In Week 4 against Oregon, Cornholio finally hit paydirt, picking up his first touchdown of the season and was fortunate to get a TD moments before McCorn’s punt return (which gave Cornholio the win in a bet between the two). It looks like Cornholio’s role will be modified going forward, as fellow Wolverine teammate Emery Park has uncapped and seems ready to carve out a bigger role with every intention of helping Michigan overcome the tyrant that is Alabama. There has been no word out of Ann Arbor as to how the new look offense will operate.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #3

 

Lester McCorn has been relatively quiet since his two-game interception streak earlier in the season - but that doesn’t mean McCorn is sitting back, doing nothing. McCorn has been all over the field, making tackles left and right in support of a young Hurricanes defense. One notable display of McCorn’s hustle was in a game last week against Texas when McCorn ran down Longhorn running back Crowbar Threek, downing him at the one-yard line after a 70+ Yard run. Miami coaches have been praising McCorn for his overall display of passion while playing football. 

 

Mr. Cornholio seems to have adjusted to his new role on the offense rather well, playing off both Julian Isola and Emery Park on the dangerous Michigan Wolverines offense. In last week’s disappointing loss against Alabama (Michigan’s first of the season after a 7-0 start), Cornholio led the team in receptions with 8 and added a touchdown reception. Cornholio might not be a burner, but his overall all-around game gives him great value that has caught the eye of some EFL scouts and places himself in the conversation for Freshman of the Year. There also has been rumors that Cornholio could bolt for the EFL early, as soon as after next season.

McCorn/Cornholio 2018 Holidays Brand

 

So we’re here at the Holidays point of the 2018 calendar year— a time for festival, family gatherings, gift exchanges, and merry times by the traditional evergreen tree. With the one-week break on the site, this was a good time as any for distant family members to get together. 

 

The McCorn/Cornholio family gathered together in upstate New York in the Adirondacks region where they got away from it all and shared each other’s company. It was a jolly old time on most part and everybody enjoyed catching up on old times. 

 

Lester McCorn and Mr. Cornholio have been putting together solid freshman campaigns and it was only fitting that Cornholio gave McCorn an interception in the annual family tackle football game, which was played through an epic Northeastern snowfall. McCorn celebrated this interception, only to get cheap-shotted by Cornholio. A shove-around ensued until it was interrupted by a family member offering free Fireball shots for everybody, and then all was fine soon afterwards. 

 

Both freshmen impact players look forward to closing out their seasons on a strong note. For McCorn, he aims to climb atop the interceptions leaderboard while Cornholio hopes to bring Michigan to the National Title game after a five-season drought.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #4

 

Lester McCorn has been enjoying himself on the Miami Hurricanes' bye week, taking in a little bit of rest and relaxation by hitting up some of the finest beaches in Miami. After a stunning 7-3 defeat against the Louisiana State University Tigers, which gave LSU their first win of the season - Miami Coach told everybody to take the week off and get their minds off everything. It is the coach's hope that the week off will give all Miami players a much-needed deep breath and put everything in perspective. With just three games remaining in the regular season, Miami hopes to finish out the season on a strong note and build something positive toward next season. 

 

Mr. Cornholio has been one of the more impressive freshman in the NCAA this season -- the wide receiver/tight end hybrid has seen a tremendous amount of playing time within the vaunted Wolverines offense that has the team off to a strong 9-2 start this season, tied with Texas for the best record in the nation. Both losses to date have come against Alabama, which could be a sign of concern for the team especially as both teams are scheduled to go up against each other in the Eastern Conference finals (with Miami and LSU as non-threats). Michigan will need to solve Alabama soon if they're to have any chance of making their first trip to the National Title game. Cornholio is going to have to step up his game, that's for sure.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #5

 

With the workouts this week, the dynamic freshmen duo of Lester McCorn, Miami Hurricanes cornerback, and Mr. Cornholio, hybrid wide receiver/tight end for the Michigan Wolverines, will have reached their maximum NCAA TPE cap. If one more TPE was recorded, then either/both players would be required to declare and enter the EFL in the subsequent draft. This is an amazing progression for both players, accomplishing this before the end of their first year on campus (then again, the duo had a redshirt year worth of head start on most of their peers).

 

McCorn has definite plans of staying all four years on campus in order to gain sufficient weight to become a defender-of-all-trades. He also has his eyes on the all-time NCAA career interception records to go along with marking his territory on some Hurricanes program records. The coaches have assured McCorn that the team WILL get better with each passing season, so we’ll see how that goes.

 

On the other hand, Mr. Cornholio’s future plans is still up in the air. Cornholio has put together a strong freshman campaign and is hopeful that it’s worthy of earning the Rookie of the Year award. But nothing is definite and Cornholio is focused on finishing out the year strong with some individual and team hardware. Due to Cornholio’s all-around skillset, he could easily bolt for the EFL after next year, but the athlete seems very non-committal at this point - preferring to see through this year before deciding on anything.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #6

 

It's been nearly four months since McCorn and Cornholio made their last brand appearance and had to stop or otherwise risk being forced into the EFL draft. Since then, the duo has gone through their sophomore and junior seasons without much fanfare. But before we get started on hyping these two players' final NCAA offseason and senior season... let's quickly review their seasons this brand have not had a chance to cover. We'll start with the duo's sophomore season, move on toward their junior season next week and finally hype up the grand finale year. 

 

McCorn had one hell of a sophomore season, aiding the University of Miami in their turnaround from a 2-10 mark and third-place finish in S10 to atop the Eastern Conference in S11 with a 8-6 record. McCorn paced all NCAA players with 9 interceptions, finished 2nd in deflections with 15 to go along with 61 tackles and 2 defensive touchdowns. On top of that, McCorn also returned a kickoff for a touchdown in what was a season for the ages. For his efforts, McCorn earned the Defensive Back of the Year honors to go along with Defensive Player of the Year. Miami was finally the Eastern Conference champions for the first time in 6+ seasons, a historical achievement. Miami would make it to the National Championship game only to get bounced by a loaded Oregon team. 

 

Mr. Cornholio had an outstanding freshman season, culminating with a NCAA Championship and the Freshman of the Year award -- his sophomore season would be very different, especially on offense. Michigan's defense continued to live up to expectations in spite of the offense's shortcomings from time to time. Cornholio's reception totals took a step back compared to his freshman season [makes sense when you go from the uncap John Smith to a junior filler Gavin Rose] and the offense becoming a little more conservative and leaning on the run more. However, his receiving yards went up as Cornholio finished 6th in the NCAA with 1,214 yards and was tied for third in touchdowns with 9 - as the lone decent option in the passing game. Michigan took a step back and ended up falling short against Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #7

 

Last week we covered McCorn and Cornholio's sophomore seasons. Today, we will be looking at the duo's junior season. 

 

McCorn had a bit of a junior slump (apparently this is a thing now). While Miami improved upon their S11 with a 10-4 campaign in S12, they were not able to claim the Eastern Conference crown for the second year in a row. Falling short by a game to Michigan both in the regular season as well as in the Eastern Conference Finals. This is despite Miami sporting the best passing defense, total defense and the second-best scoring defense in the NCAA. McCorn led the NCAA in pass deflections with 17 and added 69 tackles and four interceptions in what seems like a down year. McCorn has already come out talking last week, stating that he was going to become the best cornerback in the NCAA and one of the best draft prospect in recent memory. We will see if McCorn backs up his talk heading into his penultimate NCAA senior season. 

 

Cornholio also had a quiet year before coming on strong toward the end of the season, which is rather odd considering he had an uncapped quarterback in Gavin Rose throwing passes his way and the Wolverines finishing the season with the third-best passing offense in the country. A part of the reason can be attributed to the heavy focus/usage of star running back Ricky Razor in the offense, which may have taken away opportunities from others. Nonetheless, Cornholio posted 78 receptions for 1,118 yards and eight touchdowns. Michigan started strong, going 9-0 before slumping a little toward the finish line with a 11-3 mark. This was still good enough for the Eastern Conference regular season title, which Michigan would go on to win in the Conference Finals before falling short in a heartbreaking 21-20 loss to Notre Dame in the title game. In this very game, Cornholio was practically nonexistent - which has angered him to the point where he will be very determined to come back bigger, stronger, and faster in order to wrap up his NCAA career how it started - with another title.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #8

 

So we're here at the duo's senior season. There is tremendous promise in the S14 Draft. You have approximately 22 guys who have already accumulated over 200 TPE, the threshold to enter the EFL Draft. Some of the big names are those such as Notre Dame running back Duke Starscream and cornerback Casey Archer, Michigan brother duo of quarterback Max Byrd and cornerback Jax Byrd, Alabama running back Boaty McBoatface, Texas duo of Matt Saracen and Luke Cafferty among others. The NCAA competition is going to be real this season. 

 

Lester McCorn has had an interesting NCAA journey. From one of the best NCAA player during his sophomore season to completely overlooked in the DBotY conversation during his junior season despite a NCAA-high 17 pass deflections... McCorn is hungry. Hungry for interceptions, that is. Those kind of plays change games, seasons... even national titles. McCorn has been a gym rat in the Miami's weight room, often being one of the first to arrive and one of the last few to leave. He fully intends on leading the Miami by example and with his play on the field. The senior has high expectations of himself and nothing short of a plethora of individual trophies as well as a National Title will be viewed as a disappointment. 

 

Mr. Cornholio has been working hard on his game and hitting the gym. The results have been evident and Mr. Cornholio impressed the Michigan Wolverines coaches and his fellow teammates during spring practice. Cornholio has aspirations of earning his first Wide Receiver of the Year award at the very least, which he has come up short the last two seasons. With stiff competition at the cornerback positions this season, it won't be easy for Cornholio to put up video game like numbers.... but that certainly isn't going to stop him from trying. With an uncapping quarterback and an uncapped wide receiver working together... history seems to indicate that they (along with Michigan) could be set up for a great year ahead of them.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #9

 

McCorn's Hurricanes have gotten off to a rough start this season. There was a considerable amount of turnover in Miami from last season to this season - but with the amount of talent on both sides of the ball, the expectations was that Miiami would still remain contenders in the East. This hasn't been the case -- although Miami's played two 2-0 teams so far (@ Oregon, vs. Texas), people were expecting at least a win by now. Miami's posted the best rush defense, but their passing defense is 6th in the NCAA in what was thought to be a staple of the team. McCorn did get an interception in the first game, but other than that, he's been okay. A nice start for a highly touted defensive player, eh? 

 

On the other hand, Mr. Cornholio has posted a strong start in his first two games. Through the first two weeks, Cornholio is second in the country in receptions and leads everybody in receiving yards to go along with a touchdown in both games. During this time, Michigan has posted strong wins in their first two games, showcasing the nation why their offense was to be feared. The Wolverines sports the nation's best scoring offense, total yards, and passing offense, to go along with a defense that's the best in total yards and passing yards as well. They were able to extract sweet revenge against Notre Dame on their home field in a highly-touted rematch from last season's national championship game. Looking good.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #10

 

Lester McCorn and his Miami Hurricanes teammates have a trying start to the season. Despite a positive point differential (112 points for versus 86 points allowed), the second-best rushing defense and the third-best passing defense - Miami finds themselves 1-3. Although the point differential got a huge boost after the 54-0 drubbing of USC Trojans in Week 4... but still. These Miami Hurricanes can play, but they haven't had the easiest schedule to date. With two winnable games in the next two weeks (Week 5 @ND, Week 6 vs. LSU)... this is a golden opportunity for Miami to get back on track with a .500 record through their first six games and start planning toward a trip to the Eastern Conference Championship game at the very least. McCorn has also been relatively quiet, only recording 18 tackles, two pass deflections and an interception. So much for the S11 NCAA DPotY's chances of getting another one in S13. 

 

Cornholio, on the other hand, has been a menace on the gridiron this season. He leads all receivers in receiving yards (by 73 yards), has already racked up 4 touchdowns and averages 22.0 yards per reception. All this is being done while featuring an offense that has topped 52 points three times in four games already and sports the #1 passing attack in the country to go along the third-best total offense yards. At this pace, this Michigan offense could really become one of the greatest offense in NCAA history. If you take a look at their schedule, it's been relatively cake -- three games against opponents with one win combined through the first three weeks and then Alabama who is just eh. The Wolverines do have a big test on their hands the next two weeks with a road date at Oregon and a home affair vs. Texas. Should be fun to see if this Michigan offense can keep throwing points up on the board.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #11

 

Miami Hurricanes' Lester McCorn, once a highly heralded cornerback who reached his peak during his sophomore season when he was named the S11 NCAA Defensive Back of the Year as well as the Defensive Player of the Year. Ever since then, he's been relatively quiet... especially during his uncapping senior season when many expected him to retake the crown as the best defensive back in the nation. Through the first half of this season (S13), the Hurricanes' pass defense is the 5th best in the country (to go along with the #1 ranked rushing defense and #3 total defense in terms of yards allowed). What is more alarming is the fact that McCorn has only recorded three interceptions and six pass deflections... a far cry from his ballhawking ways of old. There's been speculations that McCorn has appeared to be under the influence of something during gamedays as his overall body language and demeanor has been troubling for the Miami football coaches. This could have serious implications on his draft stock... more to come on this as details are unveiled. 

 

It wasn't too long ago that McCorn appeared to be the better draft prospect compared to Cornholio -- how the tides have turned. As McCorn has gone down, Cornholio's has skyrocketed this season. In 5 out of 7 games this season, Cornholio has topped 100 receiving yards (6 if you're talking 99 yards, and 7 if you're talking 91 yards) and this wide receiver/tight end hybrid is averaging a touchdown per game. If he keeps up at this pace, Cornholio could pose a legitimate threat to more receiving yards (not just career, but single-season records as well). EFL Draft Scouts aren't sure what is behind Cornholio's immediate improvements (better offensive scheme, a quarterback who actually likes Cornholio, or just Cornholio's general improved all-around build), but they are liking what they see right now. With four games coming up on the schedule against teams with .500 or worse records, this could be feast time for Cornholio.

McCorn/Cornholio NCAA Update #12

 

All the talk of McCorn and his falling Draft stock  a couple of weeks ago may have been premature. McCorn seems to have been picking up the slack as of late, recording another multi-interception game as well as a pick-6. This performance surge seems to have cemented his name in the conversation for DBotY at the very least. McCorn has been focusing on his speed and footwork, calling it long-term preparations for a successful career. 

 

Cornholio continues his hot streak, averaging more than 100 yards and a receiving TD per game. When he’s involved in the offense, it is often associated with Wolverines’ offensive success. For some reason, when Cornholio hits these two benchmark numbers - the offensive coordinator stops calling his number and the offense grinds down to a crawl. This may have been the reason behind Michigan’s collapse against lowly LSU. If the Wolverines can. Make the necessary adjustments, they should be in good shape - especially with games coming up on the horizon against Texas and Oregon.

Lester McCorn has been largely a disappointment ever since his breakout sophomore season in S11 when McCorn earned the NCAA Defensive Player and Defensive Back of the Year honors. What happened? People aren't sure and there has been speculation that McCorn hasn't been himself the last two seasons. Could he have reached his peak too early and been on a steady decline since then? That is something that EFL scouts will be concerned about during the Combine/Draft process. 

 

McCorn will fall way short of the career interceptions, pass deflections, and Defensive Touchdowns record, having only recorded 24, 53 and 4 through his four-year career (current NCAA career record: 35, 65 and 8 by Alabama's Isaac Martin). Interestingly enough, Lester McCorn has always matched up well against Mr. Cornholio when playing head-to-head. Can he elevate his overall consistency from a matchup to matchup toward a weekly basis in the EFL?

 

On Special Teams, it does indeed look as if McCorn could cement a record for himself, thanks to his involvement all four years. He is only 52 yards shy of the career NCAA Kickoff Return Yards mark (currently 1885 yards held by R. Golden). He'd need 9 more KRs to break Dewey Jackson's NCAA career KR mark (130), which is definitely unlikely.... so you can probably bet on McCorn hoping for a high-scoring game so he gets more opportunities to break the KR Yards mark. PR records looks out of the question unless McCorn picks up another PR touchdown (which would make him the second member of the 3-PR TD club with Notre Dame's Samson Steiner).

As for Mr. Cornholio, it appears that he has some career records locked up with a strong possibility of adding one or two more by the time he's done with the University of Miami in Week 14, his 56th regular season game. Career reception records is now Mr. Cornholio's as he passed Patrick Kelley's record of 320 receptions in Week 12. Cornholio will need 137 yards and a touchdown to tie Oregon's Patrick Kelley's NCAA career receiving yards and receiving touchdown marks. 

 

On the special teams front, Cornholio is also the second player in NCAA history to record 2 Kickoff Returns TDs and is the ninth player in the NCAA to record multiple Punt Return Touchdowns (which ironically all happened during his sophomore season). It will be interesting to see if Cornholio can become the first player to record three KR TD's in his last regular season game where a couple of NCAA records could be at stake. Is it doable? Mr. Cornholio certainly hopes so.  

 

Week 14 should be interesting but bittersweet at the same time. I'm keeping my expectations low, but it'd be nice if I got a couple more NCAA career records for these two first-gen four-year players.

McCorn Bids Farewell to Miami /Cornholio Final NCAA Playoffs

 

Lester McCorn is officially done as a Miami Hurricane. He put together a great four-year career under @CptMatt from S10-S13, sticking with the team through thick and thin. The highlight of McCorn's tenure in Miami was in S11 when Miami shocked everybody by making a trip to the National Championship game where McCorn was instrumental from his cornerback position. The last two seasons seemed somewhat lackluster and Miami couldn't reach their S11 high, going down to sitting outside the postseason this year. McCorn currently owns the NCAA All-time KR Yards record, which is a decent consolation prize I guess. In a recent S14 Draft Class ranking article, McCorn slotted in at #5 behind three other cornerbacks. Only time will tell whether or not McCorn is able to rediscover his amazing form from S11 if he is able to find himself in the right system with ample playing time. Otherwise, he could end up as yet another story of what-could-have-been.

 

Mr. Cornholio's storied career at the University of Michigan isn't quite over yet. He may leave campus as one of the greatest winner in Wolverines football history, having earned his team a first-place finish in the Eastern Conference in three out of four seasons with possibly a third trip to the National Title game if they can hold home field against Alabama in today's Eastern Conference Championship clash. Cornholio won a National Title during his freshman season and he is hoping to bookend this with another title in his senior and final year of NCAA play. Cornholio will also leave campus owning all Michigan receiving records as well as the NCAA All-time leader in receptions (2nd in yards and TDs). In the same S14 Draft Class ranking article, the evaluator ranked Mr. Cornholio the 7th best prospect and the 2nd best wide receiver in the upcoming draft. Interesting perspective I suppose. Anything could happen and Cornholio could even fall to the second round based on team needs and their own evaluation of draft prospects.

McCorn/Cornholio EFL Draft Process

It's finally time. After maxing out at 199 TPE by the end of their freshman season (approximately six months ago) - Lester McCorn and Mr. Cornholio waited anxiously as their four-year NCAA careers played out. Two months ago, their senior season came and the duo was finally back in the gym and on the practice fields honing their crafts. Cornholio put together a great senior season, giving chase to some NCAA all-time records (eventually earning one) while McCorn had a lackluster year, citing his workout focuses on certain areas of his game for the EFL as opposed to producing in the nCAA. 

 

Now it's the week of the EFL S14 Entry Draft! Entering the EFL with an impressive top-heavy class, it will be interesting to see how and where these bright young players will go. With one pick an assured certainty (Casey Archer to New York Herd) -- this leaves the top of the draft wide open for the taking. Both players have received contacts from multiple EFL teams inquiring for their services/interest levels. 

 

Lester McCorn projects to be a fast, agile cornerback who will rely on his hands to disrupt passes. He will need to gain some mass and refine his tackling skills if he's to become an regular at cornerback at the EFL level. As it stands right now, McCorn is looking like a Top-5 pick although there have been one or two mocks that have him going at the tail end of the first round. It seems like a virtual certainty that McCorn will be taken before Cornholio.

 

Mr. Cornholio projects to be an all-around receiver who utilizes his large physique and strength to have his way with cornerbacks. Cornholio also possesses good hands and will go all-out for the airborne balls. He has some work to do in regards to his run blocking techniques - but that's to be expected from most NCAA receivers. Cornholio also projects to go into the Top-5, but it could all depend on EFL team needs and how the top of the first round shakes out. 

 

These two players are ready to make an impact and a difference at the EFL level... they've been waiting for this moment for 9 months now.

McCorn/Cornholio post-EFL S14 Draft

McCorn with EFL Commissioner after being taken #2 Overall by Wisconsin

 

It is official -- Lester McCorn is an exclusive member of the EFL Fraternity. After a lengthy wait since the last game of his NCAA career (a disappointment when you think about his sophomore season versus his last two seasons), McCorn is finally in the EFL. McCorn was selected #2 by Wisconsin in the EFL Draft where it projects that he will immediately step into a cornerback/safety role within the Brigade secondary. The second cornerback taken off the board (behind JJ Hendrix of Texas) in a cornerback-loaded draft class, it will be fun to compare the careers of these cornerbacks the next couple of years.

 

In what is seemingly a pass-happy league, McCorn will prove to be very critical to Wisconsin's success... without much of a transition period to help McCorn get up to EFL speed, quite a weight load for a rookie huh?! McCorn has been hard at work on his speed during his senior season and this hopefully will pay dividends, especially as McCorn prepares himself to go up against seasoned wide receivers, especially the speedsters. McCorn hopes to prove himself useful and make Wisconsin look like geniuses for drafting him. Whether or not he has a chance at the EFL Defensive Rookie of the Year will be up to McCorn to make up for an underachieving NCAA career.

Cornholio with EFL Commissioner after going to Memphis with the #4 Pick

 

In a situation similar to his cousin, Lester McCorn, Mr. Cornholio's long wait is finally over. Cornholio is now a member of the EFL and he is ready to get to work. Coming off a stellar individual campaign in his fourth and final year on the University of Michigan campus, he did not have to move too far to his next destination. Cornholio is officially headed to Memphis after the Mambas drafted him #4 overall and the second wide receiver off the board (behind TJ Hendrix of Texas). Cornholio was initially surprised by this, but he is now perfectly content to be a Mamba. 

 

The Mambas' offense is a strong aerial attack type of offense, which perfectly caters to what Mr. Cornholio likes to play in/what he played in during his senior season at Ann Arbor. Slated to play behind established veteran DeAnderson Sabathia Jr. and Sunshine Titan, Cornholio will get ample playing opportunities (similar to his freshman season in college). Cornholio already has lofty goals for himself and is determined to utilize his Red Zone WR build to create something unique and dominant like no other has done before him in the EFL. Much like McCorn, Cornholio isn't getting any love for the Offensive Rookie of the Year - he'll have some stiff competition from his fellow draft mates, but Cornholio isn't short on confidence here.

McCorn/Cornholio EFL Update #1

 

Lester McCorn has had his hands full the first three weeks of his EFL Career. On a Wisconsin Brigade team with high aspirations there is no cruise control or transition period. McCorn has been thrown head-first into the fire and he has gotten progressively better. In fact, McCorn was able to record his first pick-6 of his young EFL season in Week 3 against Miami Neptune’s when McCorn intercepted a pass and took it 28 yards to the house... a memorable moment for the young cornerback. 

 

Very much like his family member, Mr. Cornholio stepped into big shoes within the Memphis Mambas organization. Even though there are two seasoned veterans ahead of him in the receiving corps (DeAnderson Sabathia Jr & Sunshine Titan), expectations are high for this young athlete. Cornholio responded with a huge game in Week 1, only to step back into a passive role in Week 2. Cornholio was able to bounce back with a decent outing in Week 3 albeit in a loss. Memphis now finds themselves 1-2... and with some work yet to do if they are to return to the postseason.

McCorn/Cornholio EFL Update #2

 

CIMplaGWUAADnok.jpg 

 

The hype was real. Wisconsin Brigade rookie cornerback Lester McCorn was ready for this opportunity. His first shot going up against Memphis Mambas rookie wide receiver Mr. Cornholio, whom McCorn has had the upper hand in their NCAA days (McCorn for Miami, Cornholio for Michigan). Never had Cornholio gone "off" against McCorn in the NCAA. 

 

Flash forward to the end of the game: the Mambas have walked off the field victorious over the Brigade in a 45-34 high scoring affair. McCorn recorded three tackles, a relatively quiet stat line for a cornerback. That usually means the cornerback minimized his target's impact on the game. Not quite. Even though Cornholio only caught seven passes, he made good use of these catches to accumulate 106 receiving yards which included a 35-yard reception. 

 

McCorn: "Man, the guy got lucky. Bunch of Mamba cowards running cross routes, trying to throw defenders off their paths by running into other defenders. Fortunately nothing major like a touchdown or something happened. We battled as a team and I tried my best to continue to play to the fullest of my abilities. I thought I had a good shot of shutting Cornholio - he got the best of me especially in the second half.  Maybe the offensive schemes  have adjusted and I'm still hanging on with some of the  speedsters. We'll see you again Cornholio and next time,  it's going to be all McCorn.

 

Cornholio: "Don't really care that much for whoever is lining up on the other side of me. I usually don't even notice it myself anyways, until somebody's trying to get up in my face. That way, I am 100% focused and engaged in the game. Talking with my teammates and whatnot, that's normal, but to really rub salt on the wound and bother other people during pre-game warmups, that's something I carry with me. Nothing is sweeter than listening to everything, then dish out  the very same thing and have the last word. Hit me when you're in town brospepfh. 

 

Personal Matchup: 1-0, Cornholio
