Countdown to Kickoff: Football is Back
It's back to football here in South Jersey.
High school teams from across the region are gearing up for their first real test this week.
While his school may not be in the C.A.L., all eyes are on Southern Regional's Mike Gesicki. The Rams tight end is one of the most coveted college prospects in the Northeast, and already has scholarship offers from Penn State, Ohio State, Rutgers, Florida, Miami, and Wisconsin.
We spoke with the senior standout about his busy summer, what he's looking for in his ultimate college destination, and when he expects to have what could be considered the biggest decision of his life.
Click below for more information from Sam Hellman on what other local prospects will be bringing to their schools at the next level.
