Countryside has a knack for producing linemen who play in college.

In the past five seasons, four offensive tackles for the Cougars — Tyler Moore (Florida), Jeff Albert (Jacksonville), Brandon Pertile (Mesa Community College) and Giovanni Negron (Southeast Missouri State) — moved on to the next level

Riley Metheney could be the next.

The rising senior, who transferred from Dixie Hollins at the start of the semester, is 6 feet 4, 280 pounds. He already has an offer from Alabama-Birmingham and anticipates picking up more this spring.

“I’ve been working as hard as possible,” Metheney said. “There are some other schools that have showed interest. My goal is to have multiple offers by the end of the spring.”

Metheney switched schools because his family moved to Clearwater. It didn’t hurt that he was joining a program with a reputation for churning out collegiate prospects up front.

“As a lineman, I couldn’t ask to be at a better place,” Metheney said. “This is what they’re known for.”

Metheney said there was not too much of an adjustment in picking up the offense because the Rebels ran a similar style of spread. He will continue to work in the weight room and attend camps this spring.

“These guys are used to winning, and they’re hungry to make the playoffs,” Metheney said. “Hopefully, we can get there.”
