Bethlehem (Pa.) Liberty quarterback Dan Persa is not only one of the top QB's in the Keystone state, but one of the top all-around athletes. He has close to a half dozen scholarship offers on the table as a signal-caller, but if that ever failed to work out, Persa is talented enough to play wide receiver or in the secondary in college.
The 6-foot-2 and 195-pound Persa completed 126 of 183 passes for 1820 yards during his junior season. Persa threw for 25 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He also averaged over ten yards per rush, gaining 784 yards with eight touchdowns.
"My offers are West Virginia, Northwestern, Akron, Temple, and Connecticut," Persa said. "The other ones I'm looking at are Boston College, Maryland, Michigan State, and Vanderbilt."

Persa has two definite leaders at this point.
"My top two are West Virginia and Northwestern," he said. "I went to a junior day at West Virginia. I liked the atmosphere. I like their spread offense. It fits my mold pretty well.
"Northwestern is a great school. I went there and really liked the coaching staff a lot. They run the spread offense too."
Persa's plan right now is to take a further look at a number of the schools on his by attending their camps, see if any other offers come in, then make a decision towards the end of the summer.
"I'm going to camps at West Virginia, Maryland, Northwestern, and Boston College," he said. "I'll probably decide in late July."
