Running back Bryce Love helped lead Wake Forest High to the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4AA football title game in 2013, but missed the title game because of a groin injury.
He is a national age group record holder in the 100, 200 and 400 meters for 11- and 12-year-olds and in the 100 and 200 for 13- and 14-year-olds. He is one of the fastest high school football players in the country.
Love said he is fully recovered and looking forward to playing his senior year with his friends.
Q : First, how is the recruiting going?
A . Right now preparing official visits. I’m getting closer to my commitment. I’m going to take my official visits. I plan to use the official visits to go out of state because I know a lot about the local schools. Right now, I plan to visit Stanford, Virginia Tech, Florida and maybe Tennessee.
Q : Do you have a timetable in your head?
A : I’d like to decide sometime during the season, but I’m not going to do anything until I am sure. I don’t know when that will be.
Q : You were slowed down at the end of last year with a groin injury and missed a year of track. How do you feel now?
A .: I’m back to 100 percent. It wasn’t a real serious injury, just nagging, and it took a while to recover. It feels really good to be out there with my teammates.
Q : Was it frustrating last year to be unable to play as well as you usually do?
A: Yes, it was frustrating, but I had faith in my teammates. I was really proud that we got to the state championship. I’m glad that I can contribute again.
Q : Did your high school years fly by or drag by?
A . They flew by, especially athletic. It is hard to believe I’m a senior.
Q. What’s the best thing about going to practice?
A. Being with my friends and making new friends. We’re bonding more and more as a team. I think I’m making friendships that will last a lifetime.
