Duquesne football got another commit from Montour with Roman Macek announcing Wednesday on Twitter that he will become a member of the Dukes family. Other Montour graduates who are enrolled or recently graduated from Duquesne include Dillon Buechel and Tom Sylvester.
Buechel was a four-year starter at quarterback for the Dukes. Sylvester will be a sophomore receiver this upcoming year for Duquesne.
The 6-foot-2, 265-pound Macek played defensive end and offensive guard for the Spartans. He was recruited as a defensive tackle, where he did most of his damage in high school.
In his senior season, Macek recorded 62 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and 10 sacks. Macek was a two-way player for three seasons and was named first team all-conference for his junior and senior seasons.
Duquesne competes in the Northeast Conference in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision.
“During my official visit, I had that home feel and felt like I fit right in with the other players,” Macek said. ”The coaching staff at Duquesne is full of great coaches. Coach Papley (defensive line) is an awesome coach and an even better person.”
Macek is also a member of the Montour wrestling and track and field teams. He has a career record of 98-26 and is 18-0 this year. He is a section champion.
In track and field, he throws shotput and discus and qualified for the WPIALs.
Macek has nine career letters which qualifies him for the AW Wall of Fame at Montour.
