    Moorestown resident marks milestone. PAGE 10

    By MIKE MONOSTRA The Sun

    During an official visit to Lehigh University on Dec. 6 and 7, Greg Gamble, a wide receiver for Moorestown High School football, decided he was going to commit to the school.

    After making his commitment, he had to wait nearly two months to sign his National Letter of In- tent.

    Last Wednesday, National Sign- ing Day finally arrived, and Gam- ble’s long wait to lock in his com- mitment to Lehigh finally ended.

    “The process was long and stressful, but honestly it’s a dream come true,” Gamble said. “I get to play D-1 football.”

    Gamble and three other Moorestown student-athletes offi- cially announced their college choices during the winter signing day on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Gam-

    ble, soccer goalie Carlie Blessing, bowler Andrew Cannuli and foot- ball kicker Ryan Loftus revealed the colleges they would compete for beginning in the 2016-17 school year before a small crowd of families and friends at the Moorestown Athletic Center.

    Each athlete committed to dif- ferent schools at three levels of  NCAA athletics. Blessing and Gamble each signed their Nation-

    al Letter of Intent on Wednesday as they will compete for Division

    I schools. Blessing will be playing soccer at the University of Rich- mond, while Gamble made his commitment to play football at Lehigh official. Cannuli will bowl at the Division II level for McK- endree University in Illinois, and Loftus will be kicking for Divi- sion III Gettysburg College’s foot- ball team.

    Signing day is a formality for many student-athletes. Most

    make verbal commitments to col- leges prior to signing day. Howev-

    er, Division I student-athletes aren’t officially bound to a school until they sign a letter of intent. Last Wednesday gave the athletes a sense of finality.

    “I’m in a group chat with all of  my soccer teammates who are also signing today,” Blessing said. “So it’s kind of a ‘we’re done’ feel- ing.”

    Blessing, a four-year varsity goalie for the Quakers’ girls’ soc-

    cer team, was excited to finally sign her NLI on Wednesday. She

    said she visited more than 30 schools over the past few years and said it was a relief to finally be locked in to Richmond.

    Each athlete was attracted to their schools for different rea- sons, but all shared the same en- thusiasm about their future school.

    “I really like the coaches and the size of the school as well as the girls,” Blessing said about

    Richmond. “It’s just the team en- vironment – overall is very nice.”

    “As soon as I visited, I felt right at home,” Gamble said about Lehigh. “I was going to take some other visits, but as soon as I got done from Lehigh, I knew I want- ed to go there. I loved the campus, I loved the coaches. It was a great fit for me.”

    Loftus has spent the last couple seasons booting field goals and

    This spring, following a monu- mental 2016 Recreation Youth Basketball season with more than 700 young people playing, the De- partment of Parks and Recre- ation is pleased to sponsor the Second Annual Live Civilly March Madness Tournament of 

    Giving! This three verses three basketball tournament is sched- uled for Saturday, March 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is open to

    youth and adults alike. The March Madness Tourna-

    ment of Giving is open to all bas- ketball players in grades three through 12 as well as adults who are just looking for a friendly, fun and competitive tournament that supports a good cause. The March Madness Tournament of Giving is designed for boys and girls, and games are played in appropriate
