CMU Is On Lovelocke-Down

Standing tall at 6-foot-4, 200 lbs, Edmondson-Westside High School (Baltimore, MD) quarterback Jerry Lovelocke has been receiving a lot of interest for much more than just his measureables. His tremendous accuracy, superior pocket presence, and incredible size are just a few of the qualities setting him apart from other quarterbacks across the nation. So Far, Boston College, University of Maryland, University of Virginia, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, and Central Michigan are taking interest in Lovelocke's services. Currently, Central Michigan is the only division one school that has made an offer.

"An offer from CMU means a lot to me," Lovelocke explained recently in an interview.

"I am just happy that a school like CMU is taking notice because it is an incredible opportunity for me, and it is one that I definitely am not going to take lightly."

Though he hasn't had an opportunity to come visit CMU's campus just yet, he remains excited and hopeful that he will be able to visit in the near future.

"I want to attend a school with great academics, a rich tradition, and a student body that embraces its sports teams."

"So far from what I already know, CMU seems to fit that description pretty well."

Growing up in New Jersey, Lovelocke began playing football as a child because it looked like a lot of fun. As he grew older, his love for playing football evolved into becoming a true student of the game.

"Once I began to learn the X's and O's it became a lot more natural to do some of the things that I would see my favorite players doing, and since then it just stuck with me."

As he nears the end of his high school career, Lovelocke wants to make sure that he leaves no stone untouched. He creates short term and long term goals to keep himself focused.

"Right now, I would say that my short term goal is to help my team get to the state championship game, and win it."

"As far as my long term goals, I would like to one day be good enough and talented enough to play football as my career."

In preparation for his upcoming senior season, he is staying in shape by playing on the basketball team and the baseball team (as he does each year). In addition, when he has spare time, he enjoys working out and running.

"I know that it is my job to stay in shape so I never have to worry about being tired."

As he prepares to make a decision on which school to play for in college, his entire family provides their support in any way that they can.

"At the end of the day, I know that my family ultimately has my back, even if we don't always agree on the same decision, and that is something that I am truly thankful to have."

With CMU senior quarterback Dan LeFevour going into his final year of eligibility, it is no secret that CMU is looking for a quarterback for the future. Could Lovelocke be the next CMU quarterback?
