Harmony’s Tim McCoy Receives Third FCS Offer from Incarnate Word
Harmony’s Tim McCoy got his third Division I FCS offer Thursday afternoon.
The 6-foot, 190-pound senior defensive back told ETSN.fm that Incarnate Word offered him. IWU joins fellow FCS programs North Dakota and Penn as the trio of schools with offers out to McCoy.
For the second consecutive year, McCoy played a key role on both sides of the ball for Harmony, which finished 7-4 with a Class 2A Division I Region III first-round playoff appearance. In the regular season, McCoy caught 14 passes for 381 yards and five touchdowns, while leading the Eagles with 107 tackles. He also had four tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, and three pass breakups.
McCoy had a solid showing at the ETSN.fm Football Recruiting Combine at APEC training facility in Tyler in May, when he registered a 4.62-second laser-timed 40-yard dash and ran the fastest pro agility (4.07 seconds) of the event’s 16 defensive backs. In fact, that pro agility time was the second-fastest time of the combine’s 100 athletes, trailing only Texas A&M-bound Lufkin senior receiver Jamal Jeffery.
As a junior, McCoy ran 74 times for 297 yards and seven touchdowns, while recording 99 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries from his spot in the secondary.
Incarnate Word recently made the jump from Division II to D-I FCS this fall and played an 11-game schedule as an independent. Starting in 2014, IWU football will compete in the Southland Conference with Lamar, Northwestern State, Sam Houston State, SFA, and others.
