Keith Farkas had a great 4 year career as quarterback for the Nashua South football team. He won a championship and he set all kinds of passing records. He will now attempt to do the same at Sacred Heart University. Farkas has recently committed to attend and play his college football at Division I Sacred Heart.
Farkas led South to the Division I state title as a sophomore. Then Mr. Football David Zocco graduated (and headed to URI). It was then on Farkas to carry the offense by throwing the football down field. Farkas threw as many passes as any QB in NH over the last 2 years, compiling some outstanding numbers in the process.
Farkas will reportedly play quarterback at Sacred Heart. He is expected to Red Shirt his first year and will attend the John F. Welch School of Business. Other NH natives on the Pioneers roster include FB James Moore (Nashua, NH), DE Ben Proulx (Hampstead, NH), OL C.J. Trieb (Chester, NH), OL Justin Martel (Manchester, NH), and WR Brett Parenteau (Manchester, NH).
