So, St. Paul’s Logan Marchi has been busy this week…

Yea, so news about St. Paul quarterback Logan Marchi has been blowing up your Twitter feeds recently.

Marchi received a pair of Division I offers within 24 hours of each other: First from Temple, then UConn.

It started last weekend when the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Winsted resident, who has played for three years almost exclusively as a starter for Jude Kelly’s spread offense, came back from a Temple football camp pretty amped up:

But he wasn’t finished yet. After thanking his many well wishers after that Tuesday announcement, Marchi had another one Wednesday morning:

According to assistant coach Zach Etter, Marchi also has dates to visit Oklahoma, Northwestern and Rutgers in the coming weeks.

Marchi has completed 50 percent of his passes for 6,482 yards, 74 touchdowns against 35 interceptions during his three-year career.

As a team, however, St. Paul has struggled. Since coming within a fingertip of knocking off New Canaan in the 2009 Class MM playoffs, St. Paul has won just six games in three years, outscored by an average margin of 44-28.
