In June and July, we recommend that aspiring college football prospects attend college one-day camps to earn scholarship offers.
Effort paid off for Norview athletes Marqeese Dietz (2021 ATH 5-10 165) this week.
Dietz has seen action as a quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back in two seasons at Norview. That versatility only adds to the attraction for college coaches.
“(Their camp Monday) was a great atmosphere to be around. It was very enthusiastic and energetic. The energy level was high. I learned some new things. Everything about it was just good,” said Dietz.
For Marquesee, it’s the third college scholarship offer following Virginia Tech and Virginia University – Lynchburg. His camp schedule will continue and he has high hopes of earning more offers.
“I’m hoping South Carolina hopefully and maybe Pitt (will be next).”
He camped at South Carolina yesterday and will hit NC State on Saturday. Beyond that, he has stops planned for UNC Sunday, then he’ll hit Norfolk State on June 17 to be coached up by the Spartans’ staff as well as the staffs from Virginia Tech and East Carolina. He’ll visit Maryland in two weeks on June 21 and also camp at Penn State next month.
In addition to all of that activity, there’s training with the Norview football team that will be led once again by Head Coach Dealton Cotton.
Cotton coached the football team for several years before giving up that role in order to take the Athletic Director position full time at Norview. After one year under coach Reggie Chavis, Cotton comes back to lead the program. He’ll be athletic director and head football coach this fall.
Star running back Kaytron Allen has decided to transfer to IMG Academy, so his production will be missed. Fortunately for the Pilots, there’s a stable of athletes who stand at the ready. Marqeese Dietz is in an excellent position to lead the program as a rising junior. If he can fill the void of production left by Allen, his offer list should skyrocket.
