Camden senior Andrew Stevens has committed to Maine on a football scholarship.

Stevens said he made his decision Sunday morning after returning home from a weekend visit to Maine.

"I liked the environment," Stevens said. "They treat you great. I'm excited to learn more about football and continue to improve."

The 6-3, 275-pound Stevens was recruited as a defensive lineman.

"That's what I love, playing defense," Stevens said.

Stevens led Camden to a 10-1 record and the WJFL Royal Division title last season.

He also is a standout wrestler with a 15-0 record at 285 pounds.

Stevens said he was undecided on his major.

Maine is a member of the Colonial Athletic Association with Villanova, Delaware, Towson and William and Mary, among other programs.

Maine won the CAA last season with a 7-1 record and was 10-3 overall.

"It's great football," Stevens said.
