Anthony Khalife of James M. Coughlin High School picks up his first verbal offer
Anthony Khalife picked up his first offer this past Saturday from Colgate University. He also has some interest from schools like Buffalo, Connecticut, Duke, Maryland, Pittsburgh and all the Patriot schools are looking at him.
Khalife, a 6’4″, 240-pound tight end / defense end led his team with 92 tackles, 55 first hits, four sacks and three fumble recoveries. “We play a 4-4 defense and he is a stand-up end,” said head coach Ciro Cinti. “I think if he is going to play defense in college he would play a five technique tackle. His range is from a five technique tackle to a end.”
On offense he caught five passes for 130 yards and one touchdown. “He was our main receiver and he was our tight end that we ran too. He is a very good blocker.”
He started on the offensive line at guard his sophomore year and has played both offensive guard and tight end last season. “His first two years he started at guard for us”, said Cinti. “In one game he started at tight end and finished the game at guard. That shows how versatile he is.”
He was named 2nd team all-conference and All-State 3A honorable mention.
Not only does he do it on the field, he does it in the classroom. Khalife has a 4.0 GPA and is ranked 7th out of about 240 kids at Coughlin High School.
