CRANFORD - Accompanied by family, friends, and his coaches, Connor Katz signed his national letter of intent to play football at Georgetown University. 

"It's a great education and Division I athletics," said Katz on his decision to commit to Georgetown. 

Katz spent the past two seasons as Cranford's starting quarterback, but he knows the jump to the collegiate level will provide new challenges.

"Time management and speed of the game will be different," said Katz. "You go from playing teams with three or four good athletes to everybody on the team is a division one athlete. With time management, you have meetings, lifts, practices, and class all year round now."

Katz mentioned that his favorite memory of high school football was this past year's 35-20 victory over rival Summit. In that game, Katz completed 13-of-22 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown. He also had two rushing touchdowns.
