Roanoke resident and Cave Spring High School rising senior Dylan Brucki recently committed to play football in 2013 for Liberty University. The 6’5” 300lb offensive tackle plans to study engineering at the Lynchburg, Va. school and will receive a full athletic scholarship. Brucki drew recruiting attention from many colleges following his junior season where he helped pave the way for a Knight team that rushed for over 3,900 yards, won the Region IV Championship and advanced to the state semi-finals. His efforts earned him several post-season accolades including First Team All-District, First Team All-Region, First Team All-Timesland, First Team All-State Underclassmen and Second Team All-State. He serves on his team’s Leadership Council and has also received numerous academic honors.
Recruited by schools from the ACC, Ivy League, Big 10, Conference USA, CAA and others, Brucki chose Liberty because “it was the perfect fit for me,” he said.
“Liberty has everything I was looking for academically, athletically, socially and spiritually,” Brucki said. “They have impressive facilities and an outstanding coaching staff and it was obvious from the beginning that they really wanted me to be a part of their family, both as a football player and as a person. When I shook hands with Coach Gill, Coach Wagner and Coach Torbush and made my commitment, it was a longtime dream come true.”
“I also want to say a big thank you to my current coach Tim Fulton, all the other Cave Spring coaches and all of my teammates because they have helped me more than they may know,” Brucki continued. “I’m really looking forward to a great senior year.”
Brucki is the son of Richard and Laurie Brucki, and he and his family moved to Roanoke from North Carolina just prior to his sophomore season. He played football and tennis as a freshman at North Lenoir High School in Kinston, NC.
While Brucki has made his commitment to the Liberty Flames, formal signing day will be in February 2013.
