Damaso Munoz, a speedy Safety from Miami Southridge High in Miami, has given Rutgers coach Greg Schiano a verbal commitment to attend the university beginning in 2005. Damaso is the Scarlet Knights' second verbal commitment for the 2005 class.
Damaso is listed at 6'1" and 190: though his weight may seem unimpressive to some, the young man's strength is remarkable. Damaso lifts 325 on the bench press and squats 445. These noteworthy numbers are all a result of his devotion to another sport - wrestling.
A 2003 Regional Wrestling Champion and State (Florida) runner up, Damaso has been contacted by a number of other schools for his wrestling prowess. According to Mr. Munoz, the young man's father, he is delighted his son has been awarded a scholarship for his efforts, as it takes a tremendous financial burden off the family.
