National Signing Day: AJ Fitzpatrick


Kevin Collins '20, Sports Editor

Senior football player AJ Fitzpatrick’ 20 is headed to Beloit College in Beloit, WI for the next four years. Fitzpatrick will join the Buccaneers as a slot/wide receiver, possibly punt returner, and kick returner. He will also be playing baseball for the Buccaneers. Let’s see what played into his decision to go to Beloit.

How do you feel about playing two sports at the college level?

Playing two sports for the next four years will be very hard but it is something I have done my whole life. I understand it’s hard to do in college but it’s a good challenge for me to take on.

Why did you choose Beloit?

I honestly felt it was the perfect fit for me. My dad is an alumnus there and he played a role in my decision. Lastly, I felt the same brotherhood at Beloit as I did here at Saint Pats.

Over your four years of Shamrock football what was your biggest takeaway or what did you learn the most?

I learned how to be a mature man who works well with others and help others around me succeed. The football program was a great experience and toughened me well enough for the next level.
