RADFORD, Va. (WFXR) — Months after making his commitment public, Radford kicker Connor Lytton made it official.
Lytton put pen to paper and signed his letter of intent to join the Eagles on Monday morning in a small ceremony held at the school’s gymnasium in front of family and friends.
“It’s coming to fruition and I’m excited to start my new chapter up in Boston,” Lytton said.
His commitment to the Eagles wraps up a bittersweet year. While Lytton chose Boston College among 20 schools he was considering, he won’t get to take the field for his final campaign as a Bobcat during the condensed VHSL football season in the spring.
Instead, Lytton chose to graduate high school early so that he can get a head start at becoming a college kicker.
“”That kinda just changed in the last couple of months. Another opportunity to get into the weight room and get used to school up there and get ready for the upcoming season,” Lytton said. “Not knowing if we would have a high school season forced my hand a little bit to go ahead and graduate early and get up there.”
Lytton says he’ll head up to Boston College in January and begin taking classes in the spring.
“It was tough, not getting to play with my teammates. But I’m excited to get up there though.”
