Trinity Area QB Cody Endres made a verbal commitment to accept a football scholarship to the University of Connecticut. Endres narrowed his list from ten Big East, Big Ten and MAC schools two weeks ago and made visits to U Conn and Akron. This evening, Endres informed Coach Randy Edsall that he would be accepting a scholarship offer from UConn.
Cody Endres is 6'5 220-pound strong-armed QB with good mobility who led the Hillers to the WPIAL Quarterfinals in AAAA this past season.
He threw for over 1000 yards as a junior and is being counted on to lead Hiller again this season as they move up to AAA and the Big 7 Conference.
Endres, who already owns seven Trinity passing records, has the opportunity to virtually rewrite Hiller passing history with another strong season.
Cody is the son of Dave and Beth Endres of Washington -- his father is a former MAC QB at Bowling Green.
Endres chose the Huskies over interest from Iowa, Nebraska, Akron, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Virginia and others.
He was impressive when Scout.com observed him at the 2005 Pitt 7-on-7 tournament where his strong arm and quick release stood out.
"Those are strengths," said Endres, "But I think I also manage the game well and communicate well and lead the offense."
"I do have a strong and I like to move in the pocket."
During his junior year, Endres threw for 1,062 yards, completed 51% of his passes and connected for eight touchdowns while surrendering only three interceptions.
