Lancaster Catholic offensive lineman Adam DePietro is one verbal scholarship offer shy of double-digits.

The 6’4, 250-pound senior-to-be at offensive guard holds nine verbal Division-1 scholarship offers, including five from FBS programs, according to national recruiting services and  DePietro has been offered by Boston College, Central Florida, Michigan State, North Carolina State Northwestern, Pitt, Rutgers, Villanova and West Virginia.  The Crusader prospect has also received interest, but no offers, from programs like Georgia, Nebraska, Penn State, Purdue, Stanford and Virginia.

Scout ranks DePietro as the #18 offensive guard in the nation in the 2012 recruiting class and a three-star prospect.  DePietro is the #2 offensive guard in Pennsylvania according to Scout, trailing only Archbishop Wood’s Frank Taylor (#11), who holds a total of 14 FBS & FCS verbal scholarship offers.

DePietro helped to pave the way for a productive Lancaster Catholic offense that averaged 398.6 yards (241.3 rushing, 157.3 passing) and 39.9 points per game.  The LC offensive arsenal included weapons like an 1,800-yard passer, a pair of 1,000-yard rushers and five receivers with between 222 to 482 receiving yards on the season.  The Crusaders scored 67 offensive touchdowns (44 rushing, 23 passing).

Lancaster Catholic finished 11-1 in 2010, falling in the District 3 AA playoffs in an upset loss to Wyomissing.  The Crusaders have posted an 82-11 (.881) overall record since the start of the 2004 season, winning three District 3 AA crowns and the 2009 PIAA AA championship in that span.
