Sand Creek’s Alec Muck commits to Central Michigan University for football

By DOUG DONNELLY

SAND CREEK — Alec Muck has accepted a preferred walk-on offer from Central Michigan University and plans to play football for the Chippewas.

“It’s a dream come true,” Muck said. “I went up there for an official visit and it just felt like home.”

Muck is Sand Creek’s all-time leading rusher and five-time state track champion with his senior year of track still to go. This past season he earned his second Daily Telegram Offensive Player of the Year honor and third First Team All-TCC award when he led the Aggies to the playoffs by rushing for 1,492 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Muck finished with more than 5,500 all-purpose yards* in his 4-year Aggie career and scored 72 total touchdowns.

*(Stats do not include interception and fumble recovery return yards)

Muck said he could end up being a red-shirt his freshman season but the CMU coaches also see him as a potential kick and punt returner.

“I just want to thank the whole Sand Creek community, all of my coaches and Legacy Football,” Muck said. “They did so much for me, helping me sharpen my skills. To play Division I football has always been my dream.”

Muck finished his career as the second most prolific scorer in TCC history with 352 points in league games. The only league player to score more points in conference history was Mathew Sexton, now a wide receiver for Eastern Michigan University.

EMU and CMU both are Mid-American Conference schools and play at Mount Pleasant next season.
