After beating the No. 2 team in the state 42-0 (Hackensack), we had a bye week but we couldn’t rest.
That's because we play the new No. 2 team in the state, St. Joe’s. We are both 6-0 and I am looking forward to this game. This is the last big test for us, before the playoffs.
Yesterday, I had school until 11:30, then I watched film until 2:00, had a meeting until 2:30 then practice until 6:00. After that there was another meeting until 6:30, then lifting at 7:00 until 9:00. It was a busy day. Than I got home, ate, showered and answered phone calls. So it was a hectic day, but a fun day because it was filled with football.
I am getting excited to start narrowing down colleges and start taking visits. I have been told that it will be the best couple of months of my life. So far, there are still many colleges in the running, but things seem to be getting easier.
Eventually I am going to narrow it down to five visits. At this point I am going to take all five visits and it looks like I'll be heading to Miami on Dec. 19. That's the only one I have scheduled so far, but things will change fast.
This past weekend during my bye week I went up to Boston College to see my brother play the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. It was a great game (BC won 27-25) and I was impressed with both teams. I really enjoyed the game and was able to spend time with my whole family. But, as always, I am still focused one thing -- a quest for a state title.
