Metuchen, NJ - An old saying is that hard work pays off, but for several members of the GMC White  Division champion Saint Joseph football team, this is an understatement. Five accomplished senior student athletes signed letters of intent to different colleges on Wednesday, February 1, to continue their academic success and play football for their future colleges.

“These young men are a great example of what it means to be student athletes,”Head Coach Casey Ransone said. “They are using athletics, which is just a small part of their lives, to help them get an education to be prepared for the rest of their lives.”

Steven Springer of Roselle Park signed his letter of intent to SUNY Maritime College and plans on pursuing a nautical career.
