RFH Football Players Celebrate Accomplishments with Early College Commitments

Four Rumson-Fair Haven student-athletes, all football players who have played integral roles in the program’s success this and in past years, made their college choices official by signing Letters of Intent to continue their academic and athletic careers at colleges and universities all on the East Coast for the upcoming school year. While this signing day might look a little bit different than usual, the athletes and their families donned their new colors and celebrated their hard work both in the classroom and on the sports field at their homes.  Massachusetts will become the new home to two Bulldogs in the fall as Ryan Ruane and James Smith will look to make an impact on the fields at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester and Merrimack College in North Andover, respectively.  Patrick Jamin will make the move further north when he becomes a panther at Middlebury College in Vermont where he’ll show off his abilities on both the football and lacrosse teams. John Volker will stay close to home when takes his exceptional talents to Princeton University. These athletes will join countless others from RFH that have and are currently making a name for themselves in the NCAA.  Congratulations, Dawgs!
