With the commitment of junior college offensive lineman Linwood Foy, I wanted to find out more about this new addition so I turned to the head coach of College of the Canyons, Ted Iacenda. Coach Iacenda was gracious enough with his time to share his perspective of the new UofL offensive lineman.

“Linwood is a tremendous young man who has made College of the Canyons very proud. He is the epitome of our Cougar Culture. Under recruited out of HS, he came to College of the Canyons as a 6’3 230 LB /TE/DL with long frame and a tremendous work ethic and the will to get better.”

“Over the course of the last 3 years he has pushed and worked so very hard in our strength and conditioning program and has transformed himself into the 6’5 295 lbs man you see today. After his Freshman season in 2014 I asked him to consider making a position switch to the OL. And to his credit he trusted me and jumped in with both feet. Under the tutelage of my OL coach Marc Dumlao, he has blossomed as true Big Time talent at the OT position. After 1 year at the position he has only begun to scratch the surface as to how good he can really be. I have no doubts whatsoever that he will continue to grow and learn, and am looking forward to watching that growth over the next 2 years.”

“As a young man, you won’t find a better character. He is a young man who carries himself with a great deal of pride and dignity. His attitude is always positive and upbeat. He is not a player that [you] have to prod to work hard or to motivate. His work ethic and attitude are just inherent in their nature. Teammates gravitate towards him because of his infectious demeanor. He really is a gem. As a HC I couldn’t ask for a better young man to have been a part of my program. I will sorely miss his presence in my program, and I can only hope that my younger players will follow his lead.”   – College of the Canyons Head Coach Ted Iacenda
