Quarterback Andrew Dini had an extremely efficient year as a senior, helping GRC to a 5-6 season and a first round playoff appearance. Dini felt good about his overall performance.
"I was very pleased with my performance this season. I threw for 2072 yards and 17 touchdowns with just one interception," he said. "I also rushed for 550 yards and nine touchdowns. It was a good year," Dini continued.
While the team effort was there, it didn't always pay off on the field in wins and losses, but Dini thought his team did a pretty good job.
"We started out 3-0 but finished 5-6. We struggled down the stretch and lost a few close games. Depth and injuries really hurt us. We still had a good season, but our record didn't reflect that," he continued.
Even though the season has come to an end, Dini's work is still going on as he continues to prepare for the next level.
"I have continued my dedication in the weight-room and throwing the ball, along with sprint and speed workouts," he said. "Footwork, accuracy and mechanics are the things I am working to perfect. I want to be the best player I can possibly be."
And several schools see Dini as a viable quarterback prospect. Dini's hearing from Western Kentucky, Robert Morris, Eastern Kentucky, Murray State, Toledo, Marshall and some others. Dini has also received scholarship offers from all the NAIA schools in Kentucky. But Dini is still mulling over his options.
"I have a good idea of the size of the school and education I will pursue, but still haven't made a decision. I haven't taken any officials yet, but I'm working on setting those up," said Dini.
Dini will compete in the Kentucky-Tennessee Border Bowl on January 15th.
