Seton LaSalle’s Max Schipani will play college football for a coach who knows his high school very well.
The all-conference wide receiver committed Friday to Albany, which is coached by Greg Gattuso, a 1980 Seton LaSalle graduate. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound senior also listed offers from Air Force, Columbia, Cornell and Rhode Island, but Albany was the first to recruit Schipani in June 2018.
He earned first-team honors this season in the Class 2A Three Rivers Conference.
Albany went 9-5 overall this season, 6-2 in the CAA and reached the second round of the FCS playoffs.
Gattuso just finished his sixth season at Albany. He was Duquesne’s head coach from 1993-2004 and had assistant coaching stops at Pitt and Maryland.
Gattuso was Seton LaSalle’s coach from 1989-91.
His top assistant at Albany is Jim Sweeney, who also graduated from Seton LaSalle in 1980.
It has always been my dream to play Divison 1 Football, now it’s a reality.— ????*+Max Schipani+*???? (@max_ship01) December 14, 2019
