West Catholic OL Dom DiGalbo racking up D-1 interest
The West Catholic Burrs figure to be one of the state’s best AA football teams when the 2011 season rolls around. One of those key returnees, offensive lineman Dom DiGalbo, is generating some attention from Division-1 FBS and even FCS programs.
The 6’2, 245-pound DiGalbo has received interest, but no verbal scholarship offers, from a combination of nine Division-1 FBS and FCS programs, according to national recruiting services Scout.com and Rivals.com. Interested parties include Akron, Connecticut, Maryland, Northwestern, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers, Temple and Valaraiso.
Including DiGalbo, the Burrs return four starters from their 2010 offensive line (Mike Makor, Eric Wyant and Todd-Jamal Waters). DiGalbo is one of three potential Division-1 prospects returning to the offensive trenches for the blue and white – Makor and Waters are the others.
DiGalbo & Co. helped to pave the way for a powerful West Catholic rushing attack that produced three backs who posted season rushing totals of between 924 and 1,557 yards and a 1,400-yard passer. The Burrs averaged 386.7 yards of offense (285 rushing, 101.7 passing) and 36.5 points per game, scoring 79 total touchdowns (62 rushing, 17 passing).
In the Burrs’ final four playoff games of 2010, (Bok Vo-Tech, Northern Lehigh, Lewisburg and South Fayette), the team ran for 1,538 yards (384.5 rush yards per game), including 400-yard outputs against Northern Lehigh and South Fayette.
West Catholic finished 13-2 overall in 2010, claiming the school’s first PIAA football championship with a dominating 50-14 victory over WPIAL champion South Fayette. In the last four years, the Burrs have won no fewer than 11 games, and are owners of an 80-17 overall record (.817) since 2004.
