Eight OHS Athletes Take Next Step With College Cho
Eight Oswego High School student-athletes officially announced their intent to continue their academics and sports activities during National Letter of Intent signing at the Oswego High School.
Athletic Director Scott Sugar welcomed students, parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, coaches, administrators and members of the Board of Education to the signing ceremony in the Ralph M. Faust Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The eighth seniors are continuing their athletic endeavors at the next level.
This is the most students in one year to take this step as in the past a handful of student-athletes would indicate their intentions.
Sectional and school recordholder Drake Becksted heard from over 130 colleges, but has selected Division I Virginia Tech. He is the first Oswego student to attend Va Tech and presented the school banner to Sugar during the ceremonies.
Becksted said, “I rally enjoyed the campus, liked the coaches and team. I really felt I belonged there as it appears to be very family oriented.” He hopes to major in U.S. History and Business.
The Lady Bucs lacrosse program was well represented as four young ladies are bound for the next step.
Taylor Giglio will be playing at Division I University of Albany and noted, “I never expected to say in New York State and play, but I loved the layout and the coach as Albany.” She is looking forward to playing attack and hopes to eventually major in Pharmacy.
Tayler Bowman, a goalie, is bound for Division I Towson University in Maryland. Currently ranked sixth in the nation in her age group by ESPN, Bowman noted, “I always wanted to go there. I attended an all-american tournament there when I was in tenth grade and loved it.” She hopes to major in exercise science and among the other schools she looked at were Mercyhurst, Gannon, Merrimack and James Madison.
Mikayla Place, another member of the attack unit for the Lady Bucs, will play next at St. Bonaventure University. She said, “I loved the campus and it was very family oriented.” She considered Gannon, Boston University, Rutgers and Duquenze before deciding that St. Bonnie would be her next stop.
Rebecca “Becca” Martin will be playing at Edinboro College. Once again, much like her classmates, Martin said, “I really enjoyed the campus and it was very family oriented.” She hopes to move into a career in Law Enforcement.
Softball player Allie Yule will be playing at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa. where she will major in biology and neural sciences. She said, "The moment I stepped on the campus I just knew. It was the level I wanted and it had exactly what I wanted to study."
Soccer player Jamie Bouffard is bound to Liberty University. She noted, "I wanted to go to Liberty since eighth grade and it's kind of like a dream school."
Brittany Kearns will be playing lacrosse at Syracuse University and she is extremely excited over the prospect of playing for former Orange great Gary Gait.
Superintendent of Schools Bill Crist said, “I congratulate each one of our student-athletes and I am very proud of what they have accomplished. They were driven to do their best. They will have the unique opportunity of continuing their love for their sport at the next level while also preparing for the rest of their life. Most of them still have a season left at Oswego High and I am looking forward to watching them compete one final time before the hometown fans.”
Signifying their college choices seven Oswego High School student-athletes are set to continue their careers at the next level. In front (left to right) are Becca Martin, Drake Becksted, and Taylor Giglo while in back are Allie Yule, Mikayla Place, Tayler Bowman and Jamie Bouffard.
