Dylan Lonergan is not your everyday great football player. Sure, he holds nearly a dozen Power-5 offers in football from some of the biggest programs in the country, but he's also one of the nation's top baseball prospects. 

Lonergan is currently a top-20 caliber baseball player in the class of 2023 and is slotted to be a mid-to-late first-round draft pick if he chooses the baseball route. In only his sophomore season at Brookwood High School, Lonergan is constantly throwing in the low 90s with great command on the mound. 

Though there's still some time before his decision needs to be made, it's going to be a tough one. Currently, his plan is to play both baseball and football in college. So, he's in the midst of quite the summer schedule. 

In between playing with the baseball team this spring, Lonergan is balancing offseason workouts with Brookwood for football, as well as school. He took time out from his busy schedule to join us for an episode of Breaking the Huddle.

"Whichever ball is in his hand at that moment." 

That was Dylan's father, Dan Lonergan's response when asked which sport his son loves the most. 

He added, "When he's on the mound, he's in love with that sport. When the football is in his hands, he's a football player. Though, there's no better position in all of sports than quarterback." 

Dan Lonergan speaks from experience. He played quarterback at  Penn State in the early 1980s. The Nittany Lions were one of the first schools to offer Lonergan. 

As for where Georgia fits in for Lonergan, they are one of the few schools that holds a premier program in both football and baseball though that quarterback room is awfully jam-packed with Brock Vandagriff in 2021 and Gunner Stockton in 2022. 

The Diamond Dawgs offered Lonergan in the eighth grade and he talks to head baseball coach Scott Sinclair as well as Buster Faulkner and Todd Monken from the football staff on a regular basis.
