Madonna quarterback Ross Comis, the MetroNews Player of the Year, has committed to play college football at UMass.

WEIRTON, W.Va. — Madonna quarterback Ross Comis officially announced on Monday through Twitter that he will play football next season at UMass.

Comis had been on a visit this past weekend after receiving a full scholarship offer from the Minutemen. UMass finished this past season with a 1-11 record out of the Mid-American Conference.

Mark Whipple was officially hired earlier this month as the program’s new head coach – he previously led UMass for six seasons back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, finishing with a record of 49-26.

Comis, meanwhile, finished this past season with 3,630 total offensive yards and 57 combined touchdowns (1,942 rushing and 35 TDs, 1,688 passing and 22 TDs).

The senior signal caller had just four interceptions on the season, leading the Blue Dons to a 14-0 record and Class A state championship. He was named the MetroNews Player of the Year as well.

    Good luck Ross! Great fit, new opportunity abounds for you. Congrats!

  • Bob Sylvester

    Why doesn't a kid like this get recruited? He can play. Great feet, excellent size, an athlete, strong arm, excellent down field vision and an innovative play-maker. He wins, a proven winner. Excellent "get."

    Keep it up.

    Good stuff.

    I like the decision ,I can see him doing well there . Also with UMass in the MAC it gives Madonna fans plenty of opportunity to see him play without having to travel far ( Kent , Akron , Ohio , Bowling Green ect ect) . And with a new coach comes a new attitude and positive vibes that will only benefit Comis. Good luck Ross the State of West Va will be following you and wish you good fortune.
