The Monsignor Bonner-Prendergast Friars have had a great run the last 4 years under HC Jack Muldoon as they’ve gone 33-8. The 23 senior class leaves the school with the most wins in school history in a season (11), 2 city titles and a PIAA playoff win against fellow Delaware County school Interboro. With such success brought upon recruiters for this special senior class and 5 players were able to land football scholarships to continue their academic and athletic careers. Headlined by first year player OL Thaibri Rogers who played baseball in middle school but didn’t play any sports in high school until his senior season. His junior season he walked past a practice and offensive line coach Robert Ford spotted him and encouraged him to come participate and if he worked hard every day the sky would be the limit for him. Thaibri singled out wanting to thank Coach Rob for believing in him and helping with his technique daily. He also thanked Coach Beaty for helping him get in shape and getting stronger heading into his senior season. Finally, he thanks Coach Muldoon for being the best head coach/mentor you could ask for and being there for him on and off the field and putting trust in him enough to put him on the field. Due to his hard work in practice that transitioned onto the game field Thaibri earned his first offer from Florida Memorial University an HBCU in Miami, Florida. That offer was the start of other schools taking notice such as Stonehill College (FCS) in Massachusetts, D2 programs Gannon University, Lock Haven University & Lane College. Thaibri says overall his recruitment experience was a great one. Ultimately, he choose Stonehill College which gives him the chance to play Division 1 football and also gives him the opportunity to pursue his degree in Neuroscience while also finding a management minor.

Other Friars who signed with college programs are DB Elijah Beaty who signed with CIAA Division 2 program Virginia State University. OL Nahum Tesema inked his letter of intent with D3 MAC program Eastern University. DB Answer Saie inked his letter of intent with D2 program East Stroudsburg University.
