Palm Beach Central OL Kc McDermott invited to Nike’s The Opening 

By Jeff Greer

Palm Beach Central offensive lineman Kc McDermott is one of the nation’s top Class of 2014 prospects.

He’ll get a chance to prove himself against the rest of the best at The Opening, a high school football combine hosted by Nike at its headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. McDermott, a 6-foot-7, 285-pound tackle who verbally committed to Miami, has accepted an invitation to the elite combine.

The Opening features three different events: a 7-on-7 tournament for skill players, a lineman challenge for big fellas like McDermott and then the Sparq national championship, which features the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump and power ball toss.

Kelvin Taylor, Greg Bryant and Will Likely participated in The Opening last year. In 2011, Jessamen Dunker, Angelo Jean-Louis and Patrick Miller attended.
