Check out this profile of Nick McNally by Eleanor Bailey, sports editor of The South Hills Almanac
At Seton LaSalle, Nick McNally is the center of attention.
"His bravado," is what makes him so, says Rob Carter.
The high school social studies teacher and football coach added the Bethel Park resident has the "it" factor that lights up a room when he enters.
"He is a gladiator on the field and a gentleman off of it."
McNally would also offer he has a great sense of humor.
"I like to think I'm pretty funny. I like to crack jokes. I'm not a 'knock-knock' guy. More an on-the-spot guy," he said.
When the Rebels challenge Quaker Valley at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10 at North Hills in the WPIAL Class AAA semifinal game, McNally will be more like Johnny-on-the-spot as he anchors the offensive line. The 5-11, 260-pound senior is prepared to both center the ball and knock the opposition on its tail to assure SLS reaches its destination, Heinz Field, where the championship contest will be played Nov. 18.
"When it comes to football, the team is the center. The whole shebang," said the 17-year-old son of Blake and Joanna McNally. "I'd like to say though that I do have a major role out there on the field. The snap is so important because if it's bad then it could mess up the whole play. I take it very seriously."
