2024’s Chaas Mccoy has aspirations to play college football in the Big Ten

Chaas Mccoy is one of the best players from the Jersey City, NJ area in the Class of 2024. 


The 5-foot-10, 150-pound Mccoy, who attends Pope John XXlll High School, is a dynamic player that works as a receiver and defensive back. 



Mccoy has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as being selected for FBU. 

Mcoy is humbled by the accolade.  

“Means a lot. I’m very happy to get the opportunity to play in those events,” Mccoy said. “It was a great experience and I learned a lot. But  high school is a different ball game and I will go on and learn more.’

Mccoy has attended the following camps: Youth1 combine and Zone 6ix football camp. 

No matter the opponent, every game Mccoy is determined to give it his all. 


Mccoy is going all out. 


The motor is always at full throttle whenever Mccoy steps between the lines.


“My mindset is to do whatever it takes to get open,” Mccoy said. “The man in front of me will not beat me.”


Mccoy has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. Mccoy tells why he enjoys the game of football so much. 


“What I love most about playing is being able to leave all my emotions and problems off the field,” Mccoy said. 


Mccoy has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life. 


“Football has taught me to go hard in everything I do,” Mccoy said. “Hard work pays off. Train the same, remain the same.”


Mccoy takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Mccoy makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.


“I demonstrate being a good teammate by keeping my teammates' heads up. If they see me down, they will get down. So no matter what, if they tend to make mistakes, I will help them learn and move forward,” Mccoy said. “The best advice I’ve given is to stay locked in 60 minutes. Just play every game like it's your last.”


Mccoy is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.


“I’ve learned from my coaches to stay disciplined, stay focused, work hard and keep going,” Mccoy said. 


Mccoy patterns his mentality after this standout. 

“I’ve always looked up to Julio Jones because of his work ethic and his ability to make plays but also his ability to bounce back from his mistakes,” Mccoy said. 

Mccoy lists English as his favorite subject in school. 


“I love writing stories,” Mccoy said. “It shows my creativity a lot.”


Mccoy explains his collegiate aspirations. 


“My top options would be Ohio State, Rutgers, and Penn State,” Mccoy said.
