Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 242 40: 4.79 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Led the team in tackles as a senior with 156/7/2. Junior totals included 151 tackles after 140 the prior year.
Pos: Active run-defender best in the box. Immediately diagnoses the action and flies around the football, sacrificing his body in order to make the tackle. Intelligent yet tough. Fires up the field and displays excellent tackling technique. Flashes skill in coverage.
Neg: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range as well as speed in pursuit. Swallowed up at the point or taken from the action by opposing fullbacks.
Analysis: A two-down defender with a great head for the ball, McGarigle has starting potential at inside linebacker for a 34 defense.
