St. John's Prep senior Alex Moore, the Globe's Division 1 Player of the Year, has committed to the University of Pennsylvania.
"Their tradition of excellence academically and on the football field, you can't get a better combination than that,'' said Moore, who was the state's Gatorade Player of the Year.
Moore chose Penn over Dartmouth and Brown. Football, as well as the Wharton School of Business, were the deciding factors.
A running back and safety, Moore led St. John's to the Division 1 Super Bowl title. He ran for 857 yards and 14 touchdowns, caught 20 passes for 455 yards and 5 TDs and had four interception on defense. He's lifting this winter, preparing for the baseball season and foootball at Penn in the fall.
