Orange Offer Lorditch

Chris Lorditch broke a Philadelphia Catholic League record that has stood since before he was born this weekend with his 23rd career touchdown catch. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Warminster, Pa. native also let us know he has picked up two offers since we last spoke.

"I was very proud and at the same time, surprised at how long the record had stood," Lorditch said. "Apparently the record has stood since 1978 and considering the awesome talent that has played receiver in the PCL with guys like Marvin Harrison (Roman Catholic) and Maurice Stovall (Archbishop Carroll), I was honored."

Lorditch added offers from New Hampshire and Syracuse University over the past months to bring his total up to three. He hasn't set a timeframe for decision yet, but did talk a bit about his recruiting picture.

"I liked it at Syracuse and got along great with Head Coach Greg Robinson," Lorditch stated. "One of my coaches grew up in Syracuse and is a big Orange fan, so he was really excited that they offered me. They campus is awesome and it's only four hours away, so that distance wouldn't play a factor."

"I really have no favorites right now between Syracuse, New Hampshire and James Madison. They're all within six hours, which is really my distance limit, so that won't play a factor. I'm just looking forward to getting on campus when students are there when our season is over so I can make a decision."

Lorditch caught 31 passes for 586 yards and seven touchdowns last season for Archbishop Wood while taking three punts and one kickoff to the house. Because of his excellent play he was voted second team Associated Press Class AAAA All-State and third team All-State by the PA Football News.
