Throughout the 2013-14 school year, a large number of Cascade Christian Cougars football players reported to school in the wee hours of the morning to partake in 6 a.m. weightlifting sessions.
Cascade Christian senior linebacker/tight end Mason Tobeck was one of those players who rarely missed a session during the winter and spring months in preparation for the 2014 season. Tobeck, who has already been offered full athletic scholarships from Montana State, Wyoming, Idaho and Colorado State, enjoys pushing himself through rigorous workouts. He said he is being recruited as a athlete, linebacker and possibly an H-back.
“It’s all about being bigger, faster and stronger,” Tobeck said. “I have been working hard in the offseason.”
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Tobeck is in no hurry to make up his mind on where he will attend college and play football.
“I will know when the time is right,” Tobeck said.
Cascade Christian quarterback Jaelin Goldsmith is glad to have Tobeck as his top pass catcher this coming season.
“The tight end is the safety blanket for a quarterback,” the quarterback said. “I always love throwing to Mason. He has very reliable hands. He is going to be stronger and faster this year. I’m very excited about what he can do. His bench max has gone way up and is 40 (yard dash) time is great.”
Coach Randy Davis said Tobeck has put in the work and is reaping the rewards of his labor.
“He has increased his speed and strength. When he gets to college he will probably grow another inch, and he will probably weigh from 240 to 245,” Davis said. “I think he will be an outside linebacker in college. He runs a 4.7 (seconds) in the 40 right now and is going to get even faster.”
