Career: He has career totals of 203 tackles, 3 1/2 sacks and three passes broken up, and is the 36th player in school history to have at least 200 tackles. He currently ranks 35th, and is just 28 tackles from moving into the top 20 and 85 from the top 10. He has had seven performances of at least 10 stops in his 34-game career. His 20 career starts are second on the defense and fourth overall on the team entering the 2014 season.

2014: Listed as the starter at middle linebacker on the preseason depth chart. College Sports Madness named him as a second team preseason All-Big Sky pick.

2013: Earned honorable mention All-Big Sky honors. Started all 15 games at middle linebacker as he took over the position held by Tyler Washburn, who played in a school-record 51 games and had 259 tackles in his career. McCarthy finished with 115 tackles to rank as the 13th-most in school history, including 24 tackles in the last two games of the season. He had 11 in the quarterfinals of the FCS Playoffs against Jacksonville State (12/14/13) to earn team defensive player of the week honors, and then had a career-high 13 in the semifinals versus Towson (12/21/13). Earlier in the year he had nine tackles versus Weber State (10/5/13) to earn team defensive player of the week honors. He led EWU with 11 tackles for losses totaling 41 yards in the 2013 season.

2012: A backup in the 12 games he played, McCarthy was ninth on the team with 47 tackles. He had a season-high 11 against Washington State (9/8/12) and had seven in the FCS Playoffs versus Illinois State (12/8/12). He missed the Sacramento State (10/20/12) and Southern Utah (10/27/12) games with a knee injury.

2011: Named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team. The only true freshman to play on defense, McCarthy finished his injury-plagued year with 41 tackles in seven games to rank ninth on the team. He had a team-high 12 tackles in EWU’s 42-35 overtime win over Sacramento State (10/22/11). He added 10 a week later versus Portland State (10/29/11). McCarthy had arthroscopic knee surgery during the preseason and didn’t make his Eagle debut until the Montana game (9/17/11). He made the first start of his career at Northern Arizona (10/8/11) and had four tackles in his starting debut, a week after having seven against Weber State (10/1/11). He missed EWU’s final game of the season against Idaho State (11/19/11).

HS: Graduated from Bishop Kelly HS in 2011. McCarthy was a four-year starter in high school and set school tackle records in a career (377), season (177) and single game (24). A first team All-State selection as a junior and senior and a second team pick as a sophomore, he was picked as Idaho’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year in 2010 after leading his school to the 4A State title. He was also selected as one of 50 players nationally as Old Spice National Player of the Year. As a senior, the Idaho Statesman picked him as its State 4A Player of the Year. He was a two-time 4A Southern Idaho Conference Defensive Player of the Year and twice earned All-Idaho honors. One of the highest-rated recruits by scouting services that Eastern has ever signed, Scout.com rated him as a three-star recruit and the No. 52 linebacker in the nation. Rivals.com rated him as the No. 36 linebacker nationally. He played as a linebacker and fullback in leading the Knights to a 12-0 record, capped by a 41-28 victory over Blackfoot on the blue turf at Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho. He finished his senior season with a school-record 177 total tackles, including 10 sacks and 20 tackles for loss. He also forced nine fumbles and intercepted four passes. On offense, he rushed for 603 yards and seven touchdowns on 93 carries (6.5 per carry), and caught 11 passes for 172 yards and three more scores. He was awarded the MVP award for varsity linebackers in the 2010 Boise State University team camp. As a junior, he had 151 tackles, 8 1/2 sacks and two interceptions. He also rushed for 109 yards (12.1 per rush) and caught seven passes for 34 yards. Besides earning second team All-State honors as a sophomore, he was a second team All-Southern Idaho Conference linebacker. He became the first player in school history to start all varsity games as a freshman. McCarthy also competed in track and field, and won the State 4A title in the shot put as a junior with an effort of 51-10. One meet earlier, he had a career-best 52-4 1/2. He placed third in the State in shot put as a freshman with a throw of 47-5 and seventh as a sophomore with a toss of 44-11 1/2.
