While Matt Ciccone ’19 has been dreaming of the day he would sign his National Letter of Intent (NLI) even before he began his career at Newark Academy, when the moment finally came, Matt was happy to finish the process.
Matt signed his NLI to play Division I baseball at Rutgers today. Matt will compete with the Big Ten university starting in the 2019-20 baseball season.
“It’s obviously a proud moment for me and my family,” said Matt, who signed his NLI with his parents, two brothers, classmates and teachers looking on. “All the hard work these past three or four years ever since I was a freshman, was up to this moment. It’s kind of a relief to get it over and done with.”
