Destefano Announces Decision on Monday


 Patrick Destefano, the top offensive lineman in the state, will announce his commitment on Monday afternoon.

“I will announce my commitment on Monday at 3 PM.  I will be announcing in the press box at Dorman,” said Destefano.

Although his decision won’t be public until Monday,  there is no longer any questions about his college destination.

“I have made my decision.  I am just waiting to announce.  It has been a gradual process.  It really has.  There wasn’t one moment.  It was just a process,” said Destefano.

Why did the Dorman standout decide to go ahead and make his decision public next week?

“There was really no reason to hold out.  I know where my home is and my heart lies.  I hope by committing early I can help my new coaches and have a positive influence on building a strong class,” replied Destefano.

Patrick is glad to have his decision made.

“I am relieved.  I know where my heart lies.  It is just the first step in the whole process.  It will be a long journey,” said Destefano.

Spring wraps up for Patrick and his Dorman teammates on Thursday.

“We have our spring game tomorrow.  The first part of spring went great, but then I tweaked my hip flexor.    I am good now and pumped for the spring game tomorrow,” said Destefano.

The 4-star lineman believes Dorman will be back for another title run in 2011.

“Yes sir.  This summer will be key.  Our running game looks good and our offensive line looks good.  Our defense is really coming along,” said Destefano.
