One of the more impressive multi-sport athletes in Nebraska is Fremont Archbishop Bergan’s Koa McIntyre, who helped lead the Knights to a 12-1 record and an appearance in the Class C-2 state championship game last fall.
The senior-to-be McIntyre, Bergan’s 6-foot-1, 200-pound dual-threat quarterback and safety, racked up 3,443 total yards and 48 touchdowns in 2020. He threw for 2,205 yards and 31 scores while leading the team in rushing with 1,238 yards and 16 touchdowns.
He currently holds two offers to play football from service academies — Army and Air Force — and is excited to hit the camp scene this June now that the NCAA’s in-person suspension has been lifted.
McIntyre is planning on attending camps at Nebraska this Friday, North Dakota State on June 10 and Kansas State on June 20 with a private one-hour workout at Wyoming on June 25.
“I just want to get after it, show the coaches what I can actually do,” McIntyre said. “I’d say I’m one of the underrated kids because I’m at a small Class C school. So I just want to show them what I can do with my talents and hopefully get the offer.”
McIntyre, who’s fresh off a track season where he placed third in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.95 seconds and sixth in the 200 (22.71), has been putting in the work this offseason. Especially with his passing.
“My throwing’s been a lot better,” he said. “My form has been better because I know how to work the mechanics and everything.”
McIntyre, who had 31 tackles and three interceptions at safety in 2020, said he’s going to be heading into these camps at the top of his game, both physically and mentally.
“I think my mindset is a lot better at taking in things from other coaches who I’ve been going to during the winter and spring,” he said. “I did some drills with coaches over time and they just give me more lessons I’ve learned from.”
