Brother vs. Brother
Westlake High, home of the Chaparrals
Twin brothers and twin defensive linemen Roy and Matt Schwartz from Westlake HS just outside of Austin were both recruited by numerous Ivy schools.
The Texas twin brothers are splitting up.
The 6-2, 240 lbs. Roy has committed to Columba and Matt is going to Penn.
Roy made his district’s first team defense, a big deal in Texas high school football.
Here’s a local TV news report on the Schwartz brothers and their personal rivalry… that’s about to get a lot edgier I think. Roy is #48. He will be the first documented Westlake alum to play for the Lions.
Westlake’s team nickname is the Chaparrals, not to be confused with incoming freshman Colton Bishop who comes from Chaparral HS in Arizona.
New Canaan HS senior WR Kevin Macari is still up for grabs after not getting the big scholarship offers he was hoping for earlier this week. He does still have an offer from Columbia.
Perhaps senior Nico Gutierrez, who also went to New Canaan High should talk to him?
Speaking of Nico, the Columbia football roster still lists him as being on the team, but since he stayed on the roster for his sophomore season despite a second ACL tear, I’m not sure he is getting a 5th year exemption from the Ivy League. But if he is, that’s great news for the Lion receiving corps.
Our unofficial list of probable incoming frosh and newcomers now stands at 20.
