BLASDELL, N.Y. (WKBW) — After being named a Connolly Cup finalist for the second time in his high school career, Jake Ritts won the 2019 Connolly Cup on Saturday.
"It means a lot to me, but it doesn't define me as a person overall," Ritts said. "I feel like any one of these guys could've won the award."
Ritts led the St. Francis Red Raiders to an 8-2 record in his junior season. According to MaxPreps, Ritts threw for 2,431 yards and 28 touchdowns.
"It doesn't change me, it doesn't change what I want to do, and it doesn't change how I'm going to play the game," Ritts said. "Honestly, I was surprised I won it, but thankful at the same time."
