RFH Student-Athletes Make College Commitments

Three Rumson-Fair Haven football players made their college choices official by signing “Letters of Intent” to continue their academic and athletic careers at colleges and universities on the East Coast. Surrounded by their families, friends, coaches, teammates, teachers, and administrators, the athletes donned their new colors and celebrated their hard work both in the classroom and on the sports field.  Alex Cady and Christian Smith will both bring their talent, work ethic, and determination to New England; Cady will look to reprise his role as safety at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut while Smith will join the ranks as an offensive lineman at Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts.  Charles Pearson, also an offensive lineman, will look to make his mark on the field with the Blue Jays of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.  These athletes will join countless others from RFH, both past and present, who have risen to new heights in the NCAA.  Congratulations, Dawgs!


The complete list of athletes and their commitments:

  • Alex Cady-football, Trinity College
  • Christian Smith-football, Merrimack College
