Andrew Isaacs, Marquis Little Make It Official

Wednesday was an historic day at Manchester High School.

For the first time ever, two MHS players have received football scholarships to Division 1 colleges in the same year.

Andrew Isaacs, who is going to the University of Maryland, and Marquis Little, who is headed to Boston College, signed their “letters of intent” at a ceremony in Bailey Auditorium on Wednesday — which is national signing day. A large crowd turned out including lots of family members and members of the media.

Isaacs, who plays tight end and linebacker, is 6-3 and 215 pounds. Little, best known as the starting quarterback for MHS last season, is 6-3 and 220 pounds, and is projected as a linebacker at BC.

The last MHS grad to earn a D1 football scholarship was Seth Devalve, who two years ago was signed by Princeton. Devalve played quarterback at MHS but is a wide receiver in college. Last season he caught 20 passes including his first-ever college TD, against Harvard.
