Division II will determine to opt in or out of an early signing period.

Luke McCaffrey gains 1st offer in State

lgr39cld_200x200The Fourth McCaffrey, Luke has gained some notoriety as the Brother of Stanford RB Christian and Michigan QB commit Dylan as well as Duke graduate Max. However, today the 2019 QB and DB Luke McCaffrey joined teammate Josiah Davis of Valor as the lone Colorado high school of two talented class of 2019 Colorado players to be offered by the PAC-12 Colorado Buffaloes. Luke is a sophomore at Valor in a chase for another State Title with two games left in the regular season. When asked about the CU offer McCaffrey said, “Its exciting and I was caught a little by surprise. I had been up there a couple times and talked to the coaches. So after receiving a call from Coach Darrin Chiaverini, I called him back to hear the news of the offer to CU. It would be pretty cool to play up there!”

When we mentioned teammate Josiah Davis, McCaffrey said he had not spoken with him yet but, “He is my friend and teammate and it would be cool to continue playing with him at CU.” In case you missed it Davis switched jersey numbers this season from #25 to #7

Davis rushed 14 for 84 yards and 2 TDs in a come from behind victory over the Pomona Panthers 29-26. Please see the (Box Score)

A very talented athlete and multi dimensional on the field. Just watch the film and see for yourself. For now CU ranks on the Top of young Luke McCaffreys list but he would like to see a few area players join him as well as a couple other of his current mates. A few schools of interest are Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Washington but Colorado was his first offer.  Luke is listed as 6’2″ and 180 lbs. A few others athletes listed in the 2019 class are shown in this chart.screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-7-53-43-pm
Currently Valor has two regular season games before the playoffs. When asked about the RPI Luke just said, “We have the same philosophy each week. It’s the same preparation to get our jobs done. It’s about us doing what we can do well. We have a lot of guys on our roster that contribute to our teams goals.” Luke also excels on the Basketball court and plays lacrosse. We asked if he would give those up down the road. Luke said’ “My brothers and parents preach to play as long as you want and have fun doing it. It’s good to do what you like because one day you will miss it and not have the opportunity to do it over.” For now the focus is the games week by week but Luke did say, “It would be nice to play and take a crack at JK Mullen or Pomona as both were rough games. Valor will be ready next time if we have another go around.” As for today Luke is feeling blessed and excited and he stated it a few times. “I am blessed to be recognized by CU. The Buffaloes are on the rise and getting good recruits. Coach Chiaverini is on the upswing and so are the Buffs.
JoeDavisCloseupWe mentioned several players choose to play out of state. However, Luke mentioned some names on the above list to keep an eye on and was genuinely excited to be the first McCaffrey playing in this time zone. Christian plays on the West coast and Michigan QB commit Dylan in the Central while Duke graduate Max played in the Eastern time zone. So Buffaloes fans get ready for The Fourth McCaffrey, Luke to stay and play in the Rocky Mountain time zone and in the city of Boulder. As the Buffs continue to win we can anticipate seeing more locals choose a winning culture that they are accustom to obtaining week in and week out. Good stuff out of Highland Ranch today and hopefully a few more down the road.

Two fingers, peace out!
