    Just heard coach mac on 102.3 and he was talking about how he is rooting for LSU because TC McCartney (Fairview Grad) is on the staff and then he brought up his other grandson Derek and said he is 6'4 220 and said the buffs can get him if they do a good job recruiting him. Anybody know anything else about him?

    To add: Grandson of Coach Mac, son of NFL player and Super Bowl champion who also played at CU. I think you have to take him if you have the scholly available.

    He'd make a lot of sense as a PWO.

    Cool. Surprised he didn't go to Fairview to play for Tom Mac like TC did.

    The family is very tied into Faith Christian. I believe his mother works there and has for years. Coach Mac has been a member of the congregation there.

    He is a pretty good athlete. He also plays on the basketball team. I think playing in 2A probably works against him. I agree he would be a PWO.

    Works for me. As long as Embree and staff are talking with him. The previous coach would've whiffed.

    Faith had a kid a couple of years back, an O lineman, who got a scholarship to Texas. Anyone remember his name? I saw Mac, Lyndi and his two grandson's at church a couple of months ago. Great looking kids. I'd love to see Derek at CU. Personally, I'd like to see him get a full ride.
