Armwood’s McCoy commits to Vanderbilt

Another standout player on the Armwood’s Class 6A state championship squad is headed to college.
Following an official visit to Vanderbilt University last weekend, offensive tackle Kevin McCoy has made a commitment to the Commodores, Hawks coach Sean Callahan confirmed.
The 6-foot-6, 280-pound McCoy becomes the 11th Armwood player to make a college commitment, joining fellow offensive linemen Cody Waldrop (South Carolina), Cameron Dees (Marshall) and Brandon Teeling (Samford), linebackers Keionne Baines (Akron) and Eric Striker (Oklahoma), defensive linemen Allen Covington (Toledo) and Shelldon Lewinson (Wake Forest), running backs Matt Jones (Florida) and Wade Edwards (Akron) and defensive back Jarvis McCall (South Florida).
For McCoy, it came down to Vandy and the University of Central Florida. But after his trip to Nashville, Tenn., where he was escorted around campus by former Armwood quarterback Josh Grady, a freshman on VU’s squad, McCoy had opted to play his football in the Southeastern Conference. McCoy has been a two-year starter for the Hawks and started every game in this year’s undefeated campaign.
