After 11 years of hard work and dedication, senior Blaize Richards has signed to play football for Edinboro University for the next four years.
Richards is excited to start this new chapter, but the nerves are still there.
“It is exciting to know that all of my hard work has paid off, but it is scary knowing that I am going somewhere else with 100 other guys aiming to do the same thing,” Richards said.
Richards said he has his dad to thank for where he is today.
“My dad pushed me into football, so I gave it a shot. Now, I would never be where I am without him. He helps me every day,” Richards said.
Football has provided many new opportunities and relationships for Richards, and he is grateful for everything it has brought him. In choosing a college, he wanted to make sure he found one that was perfect for him.
“After going on all my college visits, I felt like it was best suited for me,” he said of Edinboro. “I like the surroundings and the people that I was with. It just felt like home.”
