A high school football player's senior football season is usually bittersweet. It might be exciting and at the same time excruciating because it's the end of a chapter in his life. For Adam Boselli the 2016 season is best summed up easily and in only a positive way.
"My senior season was fun," said Boselli. "That's probably the best way to talk about it. I actually had a very fun senior season and that's how I would describe it. I think the team went 9-2 and that was the best my high school has done in a very long time. We made it to the playoffs for the first time in I don't even know how many years. Personally I think I had a good season. I led the team in receiving and all that but it was just a fun season."
Even when the Episcopal School of Jacksonville (Boselli's high school) lost to the Florida State University School in the playoffs it didn't ruin the year. The accomplishments had already been etched in history books and Boselli was happy with all he did and all the fun that was had.
Now Boselli is turning his attention more to his future at NC State. He signed with NC State last week after committing to the Wolfpack in November following an official visit. His official visit was that weekend when he watched the Pack play the Noles competitively.
"Me and Coach Ledford talk almost every day," said Boselli. "They've come and visited me multiple times and they stay in constant contact. I'm talking to Coach Ledford and Coach Doeren and those are the two coaches I probably know the best."
Boselli was happy with how NC State finished its season with wins over North Carolina and then Vanderbilt in the bowl game. He was happy but that doesn't mean he was satisfied. He thinks the Pack can achieve a lot more.
"I mean the bowl game, I loved that," hesaid. "I watched every second of it. They manhandled Vanderbilt. The season with all the losses they had, there's definitely room for improvement. But at the same time four of their losses or maybe three of them were within a touchdown.
"There's definitely room for improvement in the win column but honestly they're right on track with where they should be. They have a really good program. They played Clemson to overtime and they should have beat FSU. I was really impressed with how they did."
South Florida, Cincinnati, Duke, Kansas and Central Michigan were the other schools that had offered Boselli before he committed to NC State in November.
