Micheal Carroll, also known as “Big Mike,” is a highly sought-after football prospect from Doylestown, PA. Standing at an impressive 6’6″ and weighing 300 pounds, he’s a force to be reckoned with on the field. With over 25 offers from top universities, including SEC, Big 10, ACC, Big 12, and Power 10 schools, he’s proven himself as the number one offensive lineman in Pennsylvania.

Big Mike comes from a family of all-star athletes. His dad played football for Penn State and his mom was a hall of fame basketball player for Michigan State. Micheal has sports in his blood. He’s dedicated and hardworking, always pushing himself to be the best.

Michael’s journey as a football player is not just about the game. It’s about the relationships he’s built, the lessons he’s learned, and the impact he’s had on his community. His passion for the sport is contagious.

 Penn State head coach, James Franklin, flew in via helicopter on his birthday just to meet with Micheal. In an interview, Micheal expressed his gratitude and excitement for the opportunities that his hard work has brought him.                                                                                                                                            “Big Mike” is excited for the next steps and what his future holds.

Michael’s accomplishments have been seen on and off the field, and have been widely recognized by his coaches and teammates.

East head coach John Donnelly said, “The visit from Coach Franklin was a unique and historic event for Central Bucks High School East, with a helicopter landing for the first time ever. It was a day filled with logistics and coordination, but it was all worth it to see Mike happy and enjoying the experience. Coach Franklin even took the time to take pictures with teachers and students, making it a memorable day for everyone involved.”
