The WPIAL’s Class of 2022 adds another player with a Division I football scholarship offer.
Seton-LaSalle lineman Liam Halligan earned his first D-I offer following an impressive performance at a Marshall prospects camp. Halligan (6-foot-5, 300-pounds) plays offensive tackle and nose tackle at Seton-LaSalle.
Following that camp, Halligan was busy again showcasing his talents this past weekend, this time for the Pitt Panthers. Halligan was part of a big group of players that took part in another Pitt prospects camp on Saturday.
”I’ve actually been in contact with Pitt for months now,” Halligan tells Pittsburgh Sports Now. “The experience was great. Just the opportunity to go down there and compete with a lot of great players and workout for such great coaches, it was really a lifetime experience. I had a great time and really enjoyed myself.”
Although this wasn’t the first prospect camp that he’s taken part in, this was different for Halligan because it was at a Power 5 program and the hometown team. Did Halligan have to shake off any nerves at the beginning?
”Of course, I was a little nervous but I tried my hardest not to think about it. I just try my hardest and do my best to perform to my full capabilities. I just go there with the goal of competing.”
”Afterwards, Coach Borbely told me that I have great mechanics and I have great footwork,” said Halligan. “I just have to work on my lateral quickness would help me out and improve me overall. But, I think I am good mechanically like Coach Borbely said but there’s always room for improvement.”
Prior to the Pitt camp, Halligan accomplished a goal of earning a D-I scholarship offer after getting the news from Charlie Huff’s program. Halligan is appreciative of Marshall and is hoping that this is the first of many offers this summer.
”When I heard I had the Marshall offer, it was extremely exciting and I couldn’t have been happier. Marshall is a really good program and knowing that they were the first team to offer me was incredible.”
As I interviewed him on Wednesday, Halligan was driving to Buffalo to take part in their football prospects camp last night looking to impress more coaches and improve his recruiting stock.
