NEWS CENTER – Thornton Academy football star Andrew Libby may have missed his senior season due to a knee injury, but his playing career is far from over.
The 2012 Gatorade/USA Today High School Football player in Maine has committed to play at the University of Massachussetts.
Libby missed almost the entirety of the 2013 season after tearing his ACL in week one against South Portland.
According to coaches at UMASS, Libby is being projected as a fullback for the Minutemen.
He becomes the first Mainer to sign with a Football Bowl Subdivision school (Formerly Division I-A) to play in college football’s top tier since Cheverus star and 2010 Fitzpatrick Award winner Peter Gwilym went to Ohio State as a walk on in January of 2012.
Libby led the Trojans to the Class ‘A’ state title as junior in 2012 amassing 30 touchdowns, 98 tackles, and six interceptions.
