DeMatha quarterback Beau English announced that he will play college football at the Air Force Academy on Independence Day.
The rising senior cut his list down to the Navy, Army and Air Force on July 1. Outside of those programs, English was offered by Cornell, Robert Morris, Morgan State, Howard and Lafayette.
English is another quarterback from the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference that’s going to a military based school. Former Bishop McNamara standout Ramar Williams signed with the Naval Academy, and will be playing for the team this season.
Prior to English’s commitment, he expressed that he wanted to stay close to home.
“I’ve always kind of wanted to stay home,” English explained to Testudo Times in April. “I really love this area not just from a football standpoint but a life a standpoint. I really love being in the DMV. Staying home or staying close to home, at least, is a big thing for me, and I’d like to be able to stay in Maryland.”
English helped the Stags win two of their three straight WCAC championships. Last season, he threw for 1021 yards, 11 touchdowns and an interception.
