Vince Shinnefield of Mater Dei, The Times Orange County lineman of year, has decided to attend Fordham, Coach Bruce Rollinson said.

"I was thrilled," said Shinnefield, 17. "I just love New York. I'm not sure what to expect, but I think Mater Dei prepared me for college football."

A two-way player for the 14-0 Division I champions, Shinnefield did not allow a sack and his blocking graded out in the 90% level every week. On defense, Shinnefield made 22 lead tackles, seven assists, and had three sacks. He will play defense at Fordham, a Division I-AA program.

Shinnefield also was named to the Southern Section and All-CIF Division I first teams.
