Spada Likely to Decide After Season

Spada Likely to Decide After Season

Steve Spada has football in his bloodlines and will surely be going on to the Division I level several months from now to continue that tradition within his family, but first he must choose the right school for him, something he is in the process of doing. Currently he holds three offers and is planning to make a decision after his senior season.

Steve Spada, a 6-foot-2.5, 260-pound center from Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell, N.J., was recently ranked the 17th best long-snapper in the entire country by Pro Kicker which just gives him another plus to add to his impressive resume. Army, Temple and New Hampshire have already extended written scholarship offers his way and he recently made a second trip to Philadelphia to learn a bit more about the Temple program.

"I went down for the Temple prospect day and really had a lot of fun," Spada said. "I talked to all of the coaches who were great and also met a lot of the current freshmen and players who had already committed for this class. I think the most attractive thing about the entire visit to Temple was the incoming class for this year because all of the players I met where just great people and that is what I want to be surrounded by when I go to college. When you add that to the amazing staff you really have something going for you, which Temple definitely does."

"They took us on a tour of the historic parts of Philly and then showed us a lot of the new facilities and buildings being constructed on campus and you could really see the pride and belief in the school and the football program during that tour," Spada added. "All of the people involved in the process at Temple are very in tune to what the plan is for the football program and I see them going places in the next few years."

Right now Spada has just about equal interest in Temple, Army and New Hampshire and plans to spend his senior season evaluating all three schools before making a decision after his senior year.

As a junior, Spada was named second-team All-League as an offensive lineman and was recently given the MVP Award for offensive line at the Elite College Combine. Recommended Stories
