Two Manchester High Athletes to Sign With Division I Schools Wednesday

A pair of Manchester High football players will sign recruitment letters with major college programs on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013.

History will be made at Manchester High School on Wednesday.

For the first time ever, two MHS players have earned football scholarships to Division 1 colleges in the same year.

Andrew Isaacs, who is going to the University of Maryland, and Marquis Little, who is headed to Boston College, will sign their "letters of intent" at a ceremony in Bailey Auditorium at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday -- which is national signing day.

Isaacs, who plays tight end and linebacker, is 6-3 and 215 pounds. Little, best known as the starting quarterback for MHS last season, is 6-3 and 220 pounds, and is projected as a linebacker at BC.

The last MHS grad to earn a Division 1 football scholarship was Seth DeValve, who two years ago was signed by Princeton. Devalve played quarterback at MHS but is a wide receiver in college. Last season he caught 20 passes including his first-ever college TD, against Harvard.
