Two local seniors recently announced their intentions to continue their football careers in college.
Neuqua Valley offensive lineman Scott Doehring is headed to Wisconsin-Platteville, the school announced Wednesday. Doehring was a Sun All-City choice and an all-Upstate Eight Conference pick. Platteville, a Division III school in southwestern Wisconsin, finished 4-6 last year and is a member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Meanwhile, Naperville Central running back Nick Kukuc is staying close to home by committing to North Central College. Kukoc, a Sun All-City honorable mention selection and first-team all-DuPage Valley Conference choice, ran for 591 yards and eight touchdowns for the Redhawks.
As reported earlier, Glenn Earl is making a comeback with the Bears. The safety out of Naperville North and Notre Dame signed a one-year deal on Tuesday.
Earl spent the 2007 season on injured reserve and was released by the Texans in August 2008, after being selected by Houston in the fourth round of the 2004 draft. Earl then made 31 starts for the Texans, and secondary is one area where the Bears need a major upgrade.
Justin McCareins understands his role, which is probably why he has stuck in the NFL this long. The unrestricted free agent out of Naperville North completed a one-year deal with Tennessee and is looking for a place to play his ninth season.
His agent told The Tennessean that the Titans could be interested but might wait until after the draft to make a move, and that other teams are beginning to show interest in the 30-year-old wide receiver.
"Justin understands the big dogs are going to eat first,'' agent Cliff Brady said. "He's not looking for $5 million a year. He's not looking for T.O. money...but he wants to play.''
All along, Riley O'Toole said he just likes making plays. It looks like the Naperville Central senior will have the opportunity at Northern Illinois.
O'Toole was not part of the 24-man class the Huskies assembled last month. O'Toole visited Iowa during the football season and discussed the possibility of being a preferred walk-on at Arizona, but he has chosen to stay close to home.
The 6-foot-4-inch O'Toole has been one of Central's most valuable and versatile players across the last two seasons, lining up at wide receiver, linebacker, safety and punter. A unanimous all-DVC selection last year, O'Toole caught 28 passes for 537 yards and six touchdowns.
Naperville Central defensive end Bryan Derence has signed a letter of intent with St. Ambrose, an NAIA program in Iowa. Derence finished the 2008 season with 35 total tackles and four sacks.
