FAIRFIELD — Cameron McGregor only needed on offer.

McGregor, a senior who played linebacker and cornerback for the Armijo High football team, signed a letter of intent to play football for Southern Utah University, Wednesday.

The Thunderbirds, coming off an 8-5 campaign, were the only team that expressed interest in the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder and McGregor was pleased to accept their half scholarship.

“My brother (Michael Ng) played with the defensive coordinator there, so he kind of got in contact with him (about me) and sent my tape to the coaches,” McGregor said. “There was just Sac State (that I sent a tape to and didn’t hear back). That was the only other school (I pursued).”

McGregor hasn’t seen the campus in Cedar City, Utah, yet, but was in touch with the coaches over the phone.

“I’m taking a trip there next week,” he said. “The coaches are all nice. They want me there. I like to cover (as a linebacker), I like to be like the leader of the defense.”

McGregor, who plans to redshirt his freshman season to get a jump on his degree in business management, likes the idea of getting his college feet wet without having to jump all the way in his first season.

“I’m going to redshirt my first year and them just go through the year of practices, so next year I’ll go in and be ready to play,” McGregor said. “I’ll need to wake up in the morning and push myself like nobody else can push you, self-motivate myself.”

McGregor also noted that going to school at Armijo and playing for coach Karl Finley prepared him to take the next step.

“Armijo prepared me to go to college with a different coaching staff every year, how to learn to how to deal with different changes and adversity,” he said. “Coach Finley, he made me more disciplined. He taught me more about life (than just football), like you have to make the right decisions. You have to stay calm.”
