Geter Helps Sto-Rox To 2-0 Start

Sto-Rox has outscored opponents 89-6, with Pitt commit Marzett Geter playing a major role in that.

Marzett Geter should have a lot to be happy about, helping his team off to a 2-0 start and being committed to Pitt. However, he has a feeling for constant need of improvement. Even after touchdown catches of 60 and 18 yards in his team's opening win over South Allegheny and a 38-yard touchdown catch in Friday's win over Carlynton, Geter is still looking for more.

"I feel that we still have a lot of mistakes to fix, but overall, we're pretty good," Geter explained. "We're hoping to improve on 12 penalties we had (against Carlynton. We're hoping to improve on a lot of the mental things;discipline. We have to get our blocking schemes right, and how to react to blitzes. Basically, just the mental problems."

Geter said he's been spending some extra time with a couple of his position coaches on both sides of the ball, in hopes of improving even in their early part of the season.

"I practiced with our offensive coordinator—coach Bradley—we break down every section of every blitz, and go off of what we read," Geter said. "On defense, Coach Cap(uano), he tells us, we're going to go off and get pressure on the quarterback. He loves to blitz. We have forced a lot of three-and-outs; a lot of turnovers."

Pitt, his future team, is also off to a 2-0 start. He keeps a similar perspective about how his future school has shaped up after two games.

"I think it's lovely," Geter said of Pitt's start. "Everyone saw that Pitt had a couple mistakes last week. That's what practice is for. I talk to (defensive backs coach) Tony Gibson. I called to tell him how I'm doing. Their defensive coordinator (Keith Patterson) came to our game against Carlynton. I'm going to be at the Notre Dame game; I'm being there."

When asked if he keeps in touch with any of his fellow 2012 commits, he talked about one he's close with, and one he's hopeful will join him.

"I talk with them a lot, especially Tyrique Jarrett, we're real close," Geter said. "I'm trying to get (Jaylen) Coleman. He likes Pitt. We should be able to get him."
