David Seagle is waiting to make a decision on where he will go to college. He has the offers, just wants to make the right choice.

The 6-foot-5 lineman from Cascia Hall said he has to find the right place that has a good balance of athletics and academics.

“It can't be one way or the other,” Seagle said.

Tulsa is a valid candidate to land the hometown kid. Seagle's father went to Tulsa and he said it would be cool to carry on that tradition and also that his friends and his family would be able to see him play more.

Others include Ivy League schools Dartmouth and Cornell as well as New Mexico.

Chosen to The Oklahoman All-State team as an offensive lineman, Seagle shined on both sides of the ball during his senior season for the Commandos. He protected his quarterback and menaced opponents.

Seagle started at center his junior year and moved to left tackle this past season. Cascia Hall head coach Joe Medina said they were running behind Seagle every time they needed the yardage.

When the Cascia Hall offense didn't have the ball, Seagle didn't take any time off. Lining up in the middle of the line, Seagle totaled 35 tackles and two sacks this year.

“It's a great feeling. My coach told me I'm the first kid from my school to be selected to this,” Seagle said about All-State. “Looking back on it (the season), doing as well as we did and getting as far as we did with the number of starters coming back, I'm pleased.”
