Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga linebacker Kory Gedin can't wait to get back on the football field again. However, he'll have to wait another week to play again.
"Now that the whole sniper thing is done, we have one regular season game re-scheduled and we begin an eight team playoff the weekend after," said the 6-foot-2, 233-pounder. "I have to sit out this weekend's game though because I'm still recovering from a knee injury. I don't want to rush back and have to miss the playoffs."
Gedin was injured a few weeks back before the D.C. area saw all high school football games shut down due to the Beltway Sniper.
"I'm almost back to full strength," he said. "I'm glad we'll get to have the playoffs at least. We're the No. 1 seed so I'm excited about that. The whole playoff system makes no sense because we play the No. 5 team, No. 2 plays No. 6, No. 3 plays No. 7 and No. 4 plays No. 8. Then we play the winner of 3 versus 7 if we win. It's all messed up, but I don't care. I just wanna win."
On the recruiting front, Gedin has already been to Georgia Tech on an unofficial visit but isn't really considering the Yellow Jackets at this time. He has an official visit set with North Carolina for Dec. 6 and has three other places he'd like to visit.
"Boston College is one visit for sure and I want to go to Northwestern and Vanderbilt for visits also," he said. "I might go to Maryland also but I don't know if that will be official or unofficial."
So who leads?
"Right now Boston College leads," he said. "I like the coaches and I also like the fact that I could play early there. I won't know for sure until I see all of the schools though."
