LBHS Senior Tariq Cole Signs Letter of Intent to Play Football at Rutgers

With his parents at his side on Feb. 5, Long Beach High School senior Tariq Cole signed a letter of intent to play college football at Rutgers University in the fall. A four-year varsity player, the 6-foot-6, 375-pound offensive lineman was named the Marine’s senior captain in the 2013 season. Among his many accomplishments, Tariq was named to the All-State football team in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Tariq has attended two summer camps in Piscataway and had already met and worked with the entire Rutgers football staff, so he had no hesitation about officially becoming a Scarlet Knight.

 

“Tariq is simply the best offensive lineman this school has produced in the last 20 years,” said head coach Scott Martin.

When I went to the old LBHS on Lindell, our big thing was track.
