Tommy DeVito has put his Don Bosco team’s 0-3 start behind him. Since September 23rd, Bosco has played three games in New Jersey, winning all of them. Last Friday, DeVito led Bosco to a 31-14 win over the state’s top ranked private school, St. Joseph.
DeVito threw for 295 yards and two touchdowns in the 31-14 win. He took a vicious hit in the first half, but stayed in the game. In the fourth quarter, DeVito moved the chains twice on fourth and short quarterback keepers to ice the win for Bosco.
After the game, he told NJ.com why stayed in the contest.
“I do it for the other 10 guys next to me,” he said. “It’s really just a family thing.”
In Ohio, SU linebacker commit Kadeem Trotter returned to action Friday. He helped his McKinley team win a 19-14 battle over previously undefeated Jackson. Trotter had missed the start of the season with a minor knee injury.
Following the win, Trotter spoke with Scout.com.
“It’s a very great win,” he said. “We’re undefeated and it sends us in a great direction because we control our destiny since we’re first in the league right now.”
Allen Stritzinger’s De La Salle (MI) team has struggled this season sitting at 3-4, but the running back and safety is still having quite the season.
In last Friday’s 49-35 loss to University of Detroit Jesuit, Stritzinger caught a 16-yard touchdown pass and then ran in the two point conversion. He also scored on a four-yard run and hauled in a 35-yard reception that set up another score.
These performances have been consistent for Stritzinger. In an article published online Saturday in the Detroit Free Press, the author wrote that Stritzinger is “going to make a lot of postseason All-State teams.”
SU’s 2017 class is certainly shaping up nicely.
