For quarterback Brendan Nosovitch of Allentown (Pa.) Central Catholic, the last few weeks have been a very memorable time for the talented junior. Nosovitch was named the player of the year in Pennsylvania, led his team to an undefeated state championship season and also picked up his first offer last week.
"Recruiting is pretty good," said Nosovitch, who is 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds. "I got my first offer from Virginia about a week ago."
With the offer coming only a week ago, and Nosovitch being fully engulfed in his junior season until this weekend, he is still gathering information regarding the Virginia program and school.
"I don't know too much about them, but I know that they're one of the top business schools, which is what I'm interested in," said Nosovitch. "I also heard that the facilities are great."
Other schools showing serious interest already are Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Northwestern. Nosovitch had time to take visits this fall to both Penn State and Rutgers.
"Both visits went well," said Nosovitch. "Penn State was really exciting, and I got to meet Coach McQueary. Rutgers was also a good experience."
While Nosovitch was already a known commodity with college recruiters, his performance on the field this fall will likely take his recruiting process to another level.
"It was an unforgettable season," said Nosovitch. "We took everything one day at a time and stayed focused on each opponent. We had some guys go down and other guys step up. It was an exciting way to end the season undefeated and winning a state championship."
On the field, Nosovitch finished with approximately 3,100 yards passing, 1,700 yards rushing and a total of 68 touchdowns in 16 games.
"I think I made smarter decisions as the season went on and I improved every game," said Nosovitch. "I was playing my best towards the end of the season."
