Stacey Bedell, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound tailback from William Floyd High School in Mastic Beach, N.Y., has looked over all of his options and will join the Villanova Wildcats at the next level.
"I just committed to Villanova University," Bedell said. "I visited there two weeks ago for camp and had a bad ankle, so I wasn't going to run, but I did it anyway and still ran a 4.48 40-yard dash, so I guess they were pretty impressed as they offered."
"The coaching staff was great with me while I was down there, they're going into the Big East next year which is exciting and it's a great academic school," Bedell explained. "I'll take a visit in the next two weeks to tour the entire campus and see the facilities and everything."
As a junior, Bedell carried the ball 208 times for 1658 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns and returned a kickoff 91 yards for another score. On defense, he had 105 tackles, five pass deflections, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and returned two turnovers for touchdowns. Bedell was named first-team All-Division, All-County, All-Long Island and All-State by the NYSSWA. He was named both offensive and defensive MVP for his division and was also named second-team All-Metro by MSG Varsity.
