|High School:||Cardinal Mooney|
Hoof Prints: Earned the starting job midway through the season, becaming the first true freshman to start at quarterback since Drew Willy in 2005...versatile, physical quarterback who is an equal threat to run or pass... comes from a football pedigree as his father Mike starred at Penn State and with the Philadelphia Eagles, while his brother Michael plays at Penn State.
Freshman (2010): Showed great promise at quarterback as a true freshman before an injury ended his season... made four starts and saw action in five games total, throwing for 428 yards and a touchdown in that time... was even more dangerous in the running game, averaging 30 yards per game and rushing for two touchdowns... passed for a season-high 210 yards and rushed for a touchdown on 16 attempts against Miami (OH) (10/30)... led the team in rushing yards after picking up 59 yards on 20 carries at Ohio (11/4)... threw for a touchdown and ran for a score against the Bobcats... despite leaving the game early with an injury, he rushed four times for 30 yards against Ball State (11/12).
High School: Quarterback of one of the top high school teams in the nation, serving as captain and leader of Cardinal Mooney’s state champion (15-0) powerhouse…UB coaches were impressed by how he manages the game and call him a tough, physical, smart player with a strong arm…despite a strong running game under coach P.J. Fecko, he ranked #102 among all dropback quarterbacks in ESPN rankings.
