Name: Tim McAvoy
Weight: 291 lbs.
High School: Bloomington High School in Bloomington, IL
Position: Offensive guard/center
Class: 5th year senior
Jersey Number: #62
2008 statistics: 5 starts at left guard
Prediction for 2009: Backup center
McAvoy started five games at guard last year and has played center in the past. As a fifth year senior, he should be pretty adept at reading defenses and calling out blocking schemes and protections. He lost his starting guard job to a converted DT last year, so he’s probably not starter material. But as the only player who has snapped the ball behind David Molk, he could be useful as a backup at all three interior line spots.
