and 3rd team All-County honors as a QB. He also starred as the teams Punter, having a long of 63 yards and averaging 38 yards per kick. As a punter he also earned 1st team All-League and 3rd team All-County honors. Furthermore, because of his athleticism and leadership abilities, he played OLB and was one of the better players on the defensive side of the field. Kyles dad said He is a competitor. He is a 3-sport athlete in Football, Wrestling and Track. This will be his 3rd year as the starting QB at Cresskill. He was actually the teams kicker as a freshman. He has played DE and is now at OLB. He is rangy and covers a lot of ground on the defensive side of the ball. As a wrestler, he had a very good year at 215Lbs, 32 and 4, and District Champion.. And he was one of the top javelin throwers in the state last year.
On the surface, Elliott sounds a bit like Ray Henderson, the former Cresskill QB star who went on to have a very productive career at Boston College. There have
been some comparisons between the two of them.
Elliott is looking for his first offer. His coach, Bob Valli, has sent tapes to schools in the Big East, ACC, and Big Ten. A lot of film has gone out and he has received a good deal of interest. The offense that we play is a bit on the conservative side. It utilizes a lot of touch passes. But his strength is his arm. He can throw it 70 yards. He is going to have to go to camps and combines this summer and show people he is a capable QB.
And thus far, he had a standout performance at the Scout.com All-American combine
in San Antonio. Kyle stated on my way down there I was a bit nervous to
see how I could perform against these top guys. But as time went on, I settled
in and did very well. My arm felt very strong and I threw some great balls with
velocity. It was an honor to throw to some WRs with big time D-1 offers and
have them tell me, Hey you have a great arm. We need to have you throw
Elliott recently attended the Junior Day at Rutgers. It was very good. Coach Schiano stressed the importance of family, but afterwards you saw the passion come out in the man. He spoke about winning a National Championship at Rutgers. He is an incredible speaker and a great coach.
This spring and summer, Elliott will attend numerous combine and camps. The whole Cresskill team will camp at Rutgers. He is also looking to camp at UConn, Maryland, Duke, Stanford and Michigan State.
