Pickerington Central had a successful season this past fall. One reason was AJ Trapasso. According to a contact in Columbus, Trapasso verbally committed to the The Ohio State University. Read on for more on Trapasso.
Word was floating around that the Buckeyes were soon to land an under-the-radar recruit. Different names were thrown out but no one seemed to mention AJ. AJ is an extremely versatile and athletic football player. AJ played a significant role in Pickerington Central's 9-1 regular season record. The Tigers ran out of gas in the first round of playoffs when they ran into a tough Louisville Leopards team (35-34).
AJ's kicking was impressive enough to earn him 1st Team All-State honors. He averaged over 41 yards per punt and rushed for nearly 1400 yards as a runningback.
While Trapasso is expected to contribute mainly on special teams as a punter/place kicker, but he has tremendous size (6'1 210) and good speed. He could factor in somewhere on the offense or defense if the special teams do not work out.
