Football: South Fayette's Plack-Tallerico commits to Delaware

Written by Brad Everett on .

South Fayette's Noah Plack-Tallerico was so good as a junior that he earned all-conference honors on both offense and defense.

With his senior season about a month away, the tight end/linebacker has decided where he will play in college. Plack-Tallerico committed to the University of Delaware on Thursday and announced his decision via Twitter.

"First off I would like to thank my family and coaches for pushing me to be the best that I can possibly be. It has been great to be able to visit all of the schools that I have. This process has been very exciting for me and I am thankful to all the coaches that have reached out to me. I'm truly blessed to have all the options that I have. This has been a dream come true. With that being said I am happy to announce that I will be committing to the UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE to continue my academic and athletic career!!! #GoBlueHens" -- @ntpt223

Plack-Tallerico was South Fayette's second-leading receiver his junior season when he finished with 35 receptions for 679 yards (19.4 yards per catch). He also tied for second on the team in touchdowns with 10. Plack-Tallerico helped South Fayette win the Class 4A Northwest Nine Conference title and finish 10-1.

Plack-Tallerico became the second South Fayette player to pick a college this summer. Lineman Ray Eldridge committed to Richmond last month. Richmond and Delaware compete in the same conference, the Colonial Athletic Association.
