2024 Snyder (NJ) High offensive lineman Mareon Tisdale was on hand to watch Syracuse’s 24-9 win over NC State on Saturday, and left thinking that the atmosphere at the Dome was ‘amazing.’

Tisdale was part of a sellout crowd of 49,705 that saw the Orange take down a top 15 opponent. It was the first time a ranked Syracuse team had hosted a ranked opponent since 2001, and the first time since 1998 that the teams were inside the top 20.

“The atmosphere was amazing,” Tisdale said an interview with The Juice Online. “The game was good. Loved the energy of the crowd.”

Of course, Tisdale was particularly focused on the offensive line, and he was not disappointed. Quarterback Garrett Shrader and running back Sean Tucker combined for 179 yards on the ground, averaging 6.0 yards per carry.

“I was impressed with how the offensive line didn’t give up a single sack,” Tisdale said.

The Orange improved to 6-0 on the season, and they’re now ranked within the top 15 in the AP and Coaches Polls.

“After watching the game,” Tisdale said, “(it) had me excited to see the next game.”

As for Tisdale’s recruitment, he said he would continue to remain in touch with the Syracuse coaching staff, who has been intrigued with his 6-foot-6, 290 pound frame, and his versatility as a swing tackle.

Said Tisdale: “The coaches said they would come down around spring to see how I’m doing.”
