It was a long time coming for Chester Springs native Cary Angeline, the former All-State tight end at Downingtown East High School, writes Samuel Evers for the Rocky Mountain (N.C.) Telegram.

Angeline, a redshirt sophomore at N.C. State, made his first catch on the college level – a 14-yard touchdown reception in a recent 35-21 win over Virginia – worth the wait.

“He was so excited – it was the first time I’ve seen him excited, really,” Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said. “I told him that was the first of many. I’m really happy for him. It was something that was coming.”

Angeline redshirted the 2016 season at USC, then, after finding himself behind two other well-regarded tight ends on the depth chart, transferred to N.C. State and sat out the 2017 season.

After having to sit out the Wolfpack’s first two games this season, Angeline finally took the field in Raleigh against the Cavaliers. His last catch prior to the touchdown grab was three years ago, against Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.

“It’s been a while,” Angeline said. “I didn’t think it would take this long.”

“Cary’s just very confident in himself,” said Doeren, whose team is 5-0 and ranked No. 20 in the country. “That’s one of the things that probably helped him carry himself through not playing football for so long.”
