Aaron Lands First Offer

Austintown (OH) Fitch will be one of the top teams in Ohio this season, and they are loaded with college prospects. One of the more unknown players is junior transfer Billy Aaron, but he already holds one Division-I offer. Aaron impressed the Pittsburgh staff in camp and walked away with a Panther offer.

Most of the high school football fans in Ohio are aware of the talent at Austintown Fitch, led by Demitrious and Chris Davis, Billy Price, William Mahone and others.

One of the more unknown talents is junior safety Billy Aaron, who transferred from Cardinal Mooney after impressing as a sophomore last season.

"Last year, I lettered as a sophomore for Mooney, which is good in that program," Aaron stated. "We had a lot of seniors, but I got a lot of reps and played well. I thought I played really well at strong safety, and the coaches played me a lot."

"I think I'm better on offense as a receiver or runningback," he added. "I will play anywhere the coaches want me to play, and I will probably be recruited as a safety. I'm working on getting bigger, faster and stronger, just like all football players."

Aaron, 5-foot-10, 180-pounds, attended the Pittsburgh camp, and impressed the coaching enough that they went ahead and offered him.

"I went to camp and did really well," he explained. "When I left they told me they were going to review things and get back to me. When we spoke next, they said they were offering and they would be staying in contact over the next two years. I'm very tight with the Davis twins, and I'd love to go to school with them."

"That offer was really exciting for me," he stated. "I worked out on offense, but they see me as an athlete. I know the Davis twins spoke to them about me, and we will all stay in touch. I'm looking forward to playing my junior and senior seasons at Fitch, and trying to help win a state title."
