Coach’s point of view
Free State coach Kevin Stewart shares some stories about Corcoran:
Why Corcoran is projected as a good college linemen: “He’s got good size and good footwork. He’s about 6-6 and 285 pounds. He has good flexibility in the hips and knees and can get low for a big guy. I’m sure that’s what the college coaches like.”
The plays that make you say "Wow": “What makes me go, 'Wow' is that he’s quick enough to reach and hook some of the defensive ends pretty easily. Even though they might be split out pretty far outside he still has the ability to get them hooked and blocked.”

On Corcoran’s college recruiting: “He came in and started his sophomore year and I think the college coaches took notice of him pretty early. He basically had the opportunity to go to whatever school he wanted to. He’s been offered by Oklahoma, so when you’re offered by those guys, you’re pretty much able to choose whatever you want.”
