Injuries are a harsh fact-of-life when you play football and unfortunately for Nassau OT Zenel…
Nassau's OT is a physical specimen
"It was tough facing guys a lot shorter than me and getting used to snapping the ball, but I did it and the coaches said they thought I did pretty well. I will say this though, I'm glad I'm back at tackle now."
Demhasaj possesses the ideal size and athleticism to be a standout on either side of the line, depending on the need of the school where he signs, but at this point no schools have been in contact.
"Honestly, no schools have talked to me yet," Demhasaj said. "I'm open to anyone that wants to recruit me and my coaches have told me just to be patient. They said my athleticism is what sets me apart and I feel like I'm probably a better pass-blocker than run-blocker, but I feel like I've improved in both areas and I can do well with wherever a team needs me."
The talented lineman prepped at nearby New Utrecht High School in Brooklyn, New York and was a non-qualifier according to the NCAA Clearinghouse.
"Nassau was close to home, but that wasn't the main reason I came here," Demhasaj said. "It's a great school and a great program. They do really well getting guys D-1 scholarships so that was a big reason I wanted to come here and also because it's a good school all the way around."
Demhasaj is on pace to graduate in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
