Kyle Sakowski verbal commitment

Kyle Sakowski  5-11 195  DB   Don Bosco   Home: Chester, NY  (Mike Schmidlein)   2* rating from  Named the North Jersey Defensive Player of the Year by Bergen Record
Chester’s Sakowski to play at Lafayette

Kyle Sakowski’s visit to Lafayette over last weekend began with a sit down with defensive backs coach Doug McFadden.

McFadden told Sakowski, a star free safety at national powerhouse Don Bosco Prep (N.J.), that he expects a lot of him. And even on Sakowski’s best days, the coach would expect even more from him.

At that point, it basically was a done deal: Sakowski, of Chester, was headed to Lafayette. He verbally committed to Lafayette on Tuesday night and will sign his national letter of intent on Wednesday.

“I’ve had a smile on my face since I committed,” said Sakowski, who has helped Don Bosco to the last two Non-Public Group 4 state championships. “During my visit, the coaches just reminded me a lot of the coaches at Don Bosco. They were really intense and I like that. When I was talking to (McFadden), it was like I was in the film room talking to coach (Greg) Toal at Don Bosco.”

Sakowski, who is 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, also received serious attention from The Citadel, Georgetown and Penn.   Very Happy

A 2 year starter at Bosco.   Coach Toal on Kyle:

"Kyle is an absolutely great leader — he's the best leader on the team," Don Bosco coach Greg Toal said. "He's an outstanding player and very smart. We expect a huge year from Kyle."

"Kyle has been tremendous for us for the last two years," said coach Greg Toal. "He's very smart, very tough and an extremely good athlete. Kyle's probably the hardest worker in the program. It's not an accident that he makes so many big plays."


Congrats to Kyle on being named to the Maxpreps All-America team today!

Goslar and Sakowski named to MaxPreps All-American team

Marlboro punter Erik Goslar missed most of 2010 with a pulled quad, but he came back last fall with a bang. Or should we say boom, as in, the way he hit punts.
Goslar averaged 52.4 yards per punt for Marlboro, which led the nation, according for MaxPreps. He and his big leg have been named to the MaxPreps U.S. Air Force All-American Football Team. Joining Goslar, a senior, on the squad is free safety Kyle Sakowski of Chester, who helped national powerhouse Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) to its second consecutive Non-Public Group 4 New Jersey state championship this year.
Players were picked for the team based on their 2011 performance as well as by local honors received after the season. Goslar, who helped Marlboro to its first Section 9 title in school history this fall, was a Varsity845 first-team all-star. He was also named second-team all-state by the New York State Sportswriters Association.
Sakowski, who verbally committed to Division I-AA Lafayette this season, had six interceptions this year. He had two interceptions in each of Don Bosco’s wins over rival Bergen Catholic, including the state championship game. Sakowski was named the defensive player of the year by
Bogus Megapardus

I got a good feeling about this kid's ability to wreak havoc with Lehigh and Holy Cross pass routes.

This is the get of the year!  DBP is probably the best HS program in the country.  He works hard and wants to work more.  I know he will be a frosh, but will he start?

I am surprised by his comparions to Toal and our coaches.  Intense? Maybe our guys checked out mentally sometimes despite our coaching preparation.  DBs were injured alot this year and still were burned as a result, but I think they played better collectively.  It's a scheme thing IMO... and hinges too much on our DL pressure.

Congrats, a very nice recruit. he will be an A-A for Pards before he is done
