Every football fan knows that a successful defensive back at any level has to have a solid mix of swagger and the skill to back it up.

Demory Monroe is that perfect combo. So far Monroe has lead his team to a 9-1 record this season and has five interceptions.

"I feel very confident in my game," Monroe said. "Last offseason I put in a lot of work into perfecting my craft. Now I can play around on the field with leverage, break up a pass and I feel smooth when I transition out of my breaks."

On the recruiting front, teams have begun to take notice of Monroe's skills. He holds offers from West Virginia, Wake Forest, Ohio and Hawaii, while also garnering interest from Penn State.

Over the summer Monroe took unofficial visits to Ohio, Wake Forest and two to Penn State to get a good feel for each program.

"Ohio is really standing out to me," he said excitingly. "They've been in the BCS standings this year and they're a good squad. Their coaches are down to earth and they're looking forward to doing some big things."

"Wake Forest isn't a big campus but it's very nice and I really like their coaching staff too and it's a good school academically."

"I haven't been in contact with the West Virginia coaches lately but I really like their offense and they're really trying to step it up on defense. Tavon Austin is my favorite college player so I always have an eye on them."

Monroe is being recruited as a defensive back at the next level but he does it all for his high school team as a returner and a receiver.
