Staten Island Receiver
James Pizzo makes a grab
Staten Island remains the strongest region for New York City high school football, and it appears a talented wide receiver from S.I. is headed to Columbia.
James Pizzo of Monsignor Farrell was a all-league team member for the New York Catholic High School Football League in 2008.
I should mention that Pizzo says he "hopes" to attend Columbia, so this is probably not a done deal.
If he does join the team, he can learn the ropes from fellow Staten Islander Mike Murphy who will be a junior.
And incidentally, the Monsignor Farrell football team's nickname is "Lions."
