A pair of local talents named their college choices for the 2018 football season on Friday.
Trinity offensive lineman Hunter Becker announced his commitment to Division I Saint Francis, where he will be the team's long snapper.
"The coaching staff is great, they’re coaches who are gonna push you to do your best and get on you if you mess up but also make sure you know when you’re doing a good job too," Becker told The Sentinel via Twitter direct message. "The ability to play Division 1 football, receive a top degree all while getting the feel of a small school is what sold me."
Becker made a Mid-Penn Capital all-star as a senior, as the Shamrocks went 3-7 this season. He's considering majoring in exercise science, forensics or zoology.
The Red Flash, an FCS program in the Northeast Conference, went 5-6 under coach Chris Villarial, who finished his seventh season in charge of SFU. Cumberland Valley grad Zachary Rohland, tight end, completed his redshirt junior year there, while Cedar Cliff OL product Shaun Hastings wrapped up his freshman season.
Meanwhile, Colts wide receiver and defensive back Alex Lantz picked Lock Haven.
He's fresh off a senior season in which he caught 30 passes for 405 yards and five touchdowns. On defense he had 25 tackles and two interceptions for Cedar Cliff (7-3).
The Bald Eagles went 2-9 in the NEC under coach Dave Taynor.
Fellow Sentinel-area products at LHU include Shippensburg's John Ford (junior RB) and Blake Kovin (redshirt-junior OL), Red Land's Noah Parsons (freshman LB), and East Pennsboro's Del'Vaughn Dennis (senior tight end).
