Football: C.H. West's Verzicco, Mallardi commit to East Stroudsburg

By Phil Anastasia

Cherry Hill West senior football players Jimmy Verzicco and Nick Mallardi have committed to attend East Stroudsburg (Pa.) University, according to Lions coach Brian Wright.

Verzicco, a wide receiver and defensive back, and Mallardi, a linebacker, were leaders for a CH West team that was in contention for the program's first playoff berth with a 4-4 record at the cutoff date.

Verzicco caught a 9-yard touchdown pass in a 16-7 upset of Moorestown, probably CH Eest's biggest victory of the season.

Mallardi returned an interception 32 yards for a TD in a 39-6 win over Woodrow Wilson.

East Stroudsburg is an NCAA Division II program that competes in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.
