Greater Latrobe OT/DT Dylan Colucci attracts D-1 interest
Written by: Josh Funk on Monday, June 20th, 2011
One of the Foothills Conference’s top returning offensive linemen has been doing well at recent camps and has been attracting attention from Division-1 football programs.
Dylan Colucci, a 6’5, 285 pound offensive tackle/defensive tackle combination for Greater Latrobe High School, holds a verbal offer from Youngstown State and has received interest from programs like Cincinnati, Connecticut, Michigan State, Penn State, Pitt, Wisconsin and West Virginia, according to his head coach Ray Reitz.
Reitz said he is surprised Colucci did not receive an offer from Pitt this past weekend after the Latrobe lineman performed well at a camp there. Reitz guessed schools may be waiting to offer Colucci until they see some film from his senior season.
Colucci can bench 420 pounds and runs a 5.34 40, Reitz said.
A selection to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Foothills Conference team on the defensive line, Colucci was part of a Wildcat defensive unit which allowed an average of 17.3 points per game, holding five opponents to 13 points or less, with one shutout. Offensively, Colucci helped to pave the way for a Latrobe unit which averaged 19.4 points per game overall – including 28.2 points per game in five Wildcat victories.
Greater Latrobe finished 5-4 last season, just missing out on the WPIAL AAAA playoffs. The Wildcats are 9-10 in the last two seasons.
