Holy Trinity, a solid program in Long Island, had three recruits who attended the annual Rutgers football spring game on Friday night. They left impressed with the night and the overall direction of the program.
The three players from Holy Trinity traveled together to SHI Stadium for Friday night’s game:
The three Long Island standouts were among several dozen recruits from the 2023 and 2024 recruiting cycles that were checking out the rebuild of Rutgers football under head coach Greg Schiano.
Holy Trinity finished the season 10-0 with seven wins in conference play.
Check out what Bacon, Briggs and Parisi had to say about their visit to Rutgers football for the spring game. They talk about their relationships with head coach Greg Schiano, offensive line coach Augie Hoffman and assistant coach Scott Vallone.
Bacon on the spring game
“It was a great day. I loved the atmosphere. We had a good time before the game in the recruiting pavilion and post-game with the coaching staff. The program feels like home. I plan on camping their this June and will try to earn an offer.”
Briggs on the spring game
“I had a lot of fun at the Rutgers spring game, yesterday. This was my second visit in the last two weeks. It was a great experience to see the team go live and to be in the stadium. Watching the game yesterday made me even more eager for my season to start. I’ve been training hard this offseason and I’m ready to take my game up another level.”
Parisi on the spring game
“I’ve been to many spring games in the past, but this one seemed more electric. The coaching staff is great….I could really see myself playing for them. I got to see coach Vallone again. I love his energy and enthusiasm. I can’t wait to be back on June 4 for camp. I’ve been training hard this offseason and I feel I made a lot of progress.”
Bacon on what stood out about the Rutgers football team in the spring game and his interest in the program
“The speed of the game and the hitting stood out to me. The team looked physical.
“I am interested in Rutgers. I’m holding an offer from Layfette at the moment and I have interest [from] Rutgers, Duke, Northwestern and Virginia. I’m trying to get out and camp this summer and show coaches what I can do. I only started playing defensive end nine months ago. I’m working on perfecting my craft by improving my technique.”
Briggs on what stood out about the Rutgers football team in the spring game and his interest in the program
“The game was very physical….I enjoyed the hitting. The team looks great.
“I am very interested in Rutgers. I really like coach Augie and coach Vallone. I feel like we have a great relationship. I plan on camping at Rutgers on June 4 and again at the Big Man Academy. Right now, I have an offer from Long Island University. I’m hearing from Rutgers, Syracuse, Maryland and Boston College.”
Parisi on what stood out about the Rutgers football team in the spring game and his interest in the program
“The biggest difference I noticed from years past was the size of the offensive and defensive lines. They are noticeably bigger from years past.
“I have always been interested in Rutgers and I grew up as a Rutgers fan of all sports, especially the basketball team. I got to meet Geo Baker. I didn’t even realize he was sitting two rows in front of me. Rutgers already offered five of my friends and current teammate Josiah Brown. I was also able to see my friends from Erasmus Hall who have Rutgers offers….Caden Brown and Aaris Bethea.”
