Lista-Brinza Looking At Several Camps

Luigi Lista-Brinza has been a key part of Central Catholic's program since his freshman year, and is coming off 960 rushing yards and five touchdowns as a junior.

Central Catholic will once again be a force in 2013. In addition to senior quarterback J.J. Cosentino and junior defensive back Tre Tarpley, the Vikings also return running back Luigi Lista-Brinza.

Lista-Brinza has been a big part of his team's offense the last three seasons, and is looking forward to another big year, his last go-around.

"It's a big deal," Lista-Brinza, said of being part of the Central Catholic program. "It's made me more of a man today. It's made me realize all about school, and its tradition. It's taught me the meaning of hard work, and how to be a better man.

"We're all back this year. We've all become closer as a team. We've developed a strong bond, and we are aiming for that state championship ring."

Lista-Brinza has wasted little time in getting ready for his senior season. He's been to one 7-on-7 camp with the PA Swag team. He also worked out at Temple's regional camp at Penn Hills High School on Sunday. He said the Owls have expressed a little interest.

"I thought the Temple camp was pretty good, I think I did pretty good," Lista-Brinza said. "It was a good turnout. There were probably a couple hundred kids there. I've talked to them a couple times."

Adam DiMichele, a Temple assistant who played his high school ball at Sto-Rox, is a family friend.

Bowling Green is one of the schools that has expressed interest in Lista-Brinza playing offense. He will camp there on Thursday, followed by a trip to the hometown school, Pittsburgh, on Friday.

"I just talked to (Bowling Green) the other day," Lista-Brinza said. "They seem to like me a lot. I'll go up there, and see what happens. Coach (Mark) Carney has come by my school. We'll see what happens."

Pitt has also come by his school a couple times. He's looking forward to the opportunity to camp at his hometown school.

"Pitt is my hometown," Lista-Brinza said. "I really like them. It's always an option. I saw their coaches at my school but i havent really talked to them."
