Corey McBride-Property of LAFM


LAFM: Name, position, school?

My name is Corey McBride , and I played football for Dutchtown High School. I am now signed with Texas Christian University.


LAFM: Current height and weight?

6-2,  180 lbs


LAFM: I know you injured your hand this past season. Still, did you receive any honors?

I missed about half the season with a broken hand. I did get 2nd Team All-District. My hand is all healed up now though and feels great. 


LAFM: What other schools were next in line to TCU if you had to say 1-3?

Well I was committed to Arkansas until they withdrew my offer. I needed a place to go and had the opportunity at TCU. TCU is a great school with a great football program. They have small classes, and I know I am going to receive a great education at the school. Looking back, I think I am gaining more at TCU then I would be at Arkansas.


LAFM:  What position does TCU want you to play?

 They want me to be a WR. 


LAFM: What are some things that stand out about TCU which made you choose them?

I loved the coaching staff. They really stood out among other colleges. Besides that, the program and the education are excellent. It is a wonderful college and I am glad to be apart of it.  


LAFM: How does it feel to be going to TCU with Torrance Mosley your teammate and cousin?

It is going to be nice to have someone I know with me. We are cousins and good friends.


LAFM: I know you also do track. Are you going to continue with track as well at TCU?

 I am going to see how it goes with my first year. Football will already take up so much of my time that I am going to make a decision once I get a feel for everything. After my first semester, I will probably make my decision. 


LAFM: Who are some people that stand out as major factors in helping you along the recruitment process?

 Coach (Benny) Saia is definitely one. He really helped me out throughout the year. He told me to patient and not too worry. He let me know everything will fall in place. 


LAFM: What do you bring as a player to the TCU football program?

 Speed. Speed. Speed. I have speed. Mentally, I am a hard working guy and always give 100%. I am good at  handling adversity as well.


LAFM: What is one thing you think that you need to improve upon going to the next level?

 I would say my decision making. Deciding when and where to make a move and  “in-game” decisions is where I need to improve.  

LAFM: What advice can you give to the 2015 class on their recruitment process?

 Definitely wait. Do not commit on the first offer. Take as many visits as you can. Pick the college that You like. Do not let anyone pick the college for you. Make sure you consider everything the college offers. Everybody is going to show you the shiny stuff like neat facilities and what they are going to do next year. Take in as much information as you can. Be patient and wait. 


LAFM: How did Dutchtown High School prepare you for playing football at the next level? 

They work us hard in the gym and the practice field. Also, running track helped me because it keeps me in shape all year long.
