What is better for a college football program than picking up a commitment from a key offensive tackle commit midway through the season?
How about two commits.
For the second time in two weeks St. Thomas University got a verbal commitment from a City High offensive lineman as senior tackle Avery Goodrich announced his plans to join twin brother Ethan at St. Thomas with a post on social media.
“Thank you to every coach who has spent time and energy recruiting me. It meant lot to a kid chasing his dreams that you all gave me that chance,” Avery Goodrich wrote on Twitter. “Huge thanks to my parents, brothers and the rest of my family for all of their support. Thank you to every coach I have worked with over the years for teaching me not only how to be a good football player but also a better person. Special thanks to my offensive line coach Ryan McKim and to my head coach Mitchell Moore for all of their time and patience and to my former head coach Dan Sabers for unlocking the door. With that being said after lots of consideration ant talks with my family and coaches I am very excited to announce my commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of St. Thomas.”
Ethan Goodrich announced his commitment to St. Thomas last month with his twin brother following suit just a few short weeks later.
Like his brother, Avery Goodrich is a three-year starter on the City High offensive line.
The 6-5, 265 Goodrich has helped City High to a 6-1 start this season while paving the way for the Little Hawks to average better than 40 points per game.
The University of St. Thomas is in its first season playing Division I football and is a member of the FCS-level Pioneer Football League.
The Tommies are 3-2 this season and 2-1 in conference play.
