Another Shore Conference product is set to play Division I football. Raritan linebacker Ryan Dickens has given his pledge to play for the UConn Huskies

Raritan linebacker and fullback Ryan Dickens has given a verbal commitment to play Division I football at the University of Connecticut.  Dickens made the announcement via his Twitter page:

Dickens ranked 5th in the Shore Conference with 127 tackles, 75 of them were solo.  He helped the Rockets win a Central Jersey Group 2 state championship.  Raritan was 3-5, but rolled off four consecutive victories to win an unlikely championship.  In addition to his defense duties, Dickens was an invaluable blocking fullback for Derek Ernst and will be a key senior leader for coach Anthony Petruzzi’s team in 2016.
