LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing 7on7 or are you playing any other sports?

CC: This offseason consists of a lot of morning workouts, followed by team camp including weight lifting after. With all the talented/top players on my team, each morning with them makes me a better player and person. Outside of my team I do not play 7 on 7 but I am strongly thinking about joining a team soon.

LPI: You currently don’t have any offers, but I believe you have what it takes to play at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?

CC: Strongest factors of my game is my leadership and size. As being a bigger running back standing at 6’2″ 220 pounds I am very athletic and explosive. My size and speed is what makes me the player I am today but lastly my leadership is also hard to miss, I take pride into building those around me as players and people.

LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?

CC: As being only a incoming junior Iowa state, Toledo, Minnesota, Miami of Ohio are showing serious interest in me. But there are plenty of more schools I’ve talked to like Western Kentucky, Iowa, Illinois State, McKendree.

LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or camps/showcases set?

CC: I have visited Toledo for camp which went really well. I’ve also attended North Central satellite camp which is where I spoke with Iowa State and South Dakota. As of right now there are no more further camps as the season gets closer.

LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?


Noah Shannon – One of the top defensive linemen in the state. He is the leader of our team and brings so much to the table for us on both sides of the ball.

Josh Shodipo – Top corner in the state and is extremely athletic. He brings toughness and speed to our defensive side, he’s being heavily recruited by several D1 schools.

Julian Bell – Also a top defensive back in the state, with no offers. As of right now he is by far the quickest/most athletic we have on the team on both sides of the ball.

Jamal Fomby – Rising junior wide receiver with great hands and speed. On the passing side of our offensive he becomes a big target for us.

John Luke Patterson – Lengthy defensive back with good speed and plays the game very smart.

Dane Millard – A 3 year defensive varsity back who is extremely tough and plays the game with passion.

Coach’s Corner

Oswego Head Coach Brian Cooney on Coleman on and off the field

“Charles is a great player and an even better person. He’s a “yes sir, no sir” kind of kid. Since completing basketball he’s been working. Expecting big things out of him.”
