Tyler Matakevich, a two-time all-state and all-Connecticut Post linebacker at St. Joseph, confirmed today he will be headed for prep school at Milford Academy.
Matakevich posted and later confirmed the news on his Facebook page earlier this evening.
Matakevich, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound native of Stratford, was a three-year starter and led St. Joseph to back-to-back state championships in his junior and senior seasons.
Despite missing the first five games of 2010, he ran for 508 yards and 11 touchdowns and caught 20 passes for 301 yards and five touchdowns in eight games as St. Joseph won the Class S championship over Ansonia. He scored 17 touchdowns total his senior year, including four in the Class S title game.
He will join Ansonia RB Montrell Dobbs, Connecticut Post’s 2010 MVP, and Montville all-state linebacker Tyler Girard-Floyd at the prep school in New Berlin, New York.
