Cavallaro Commits to UNH
"It was a pretty easy decision, and every time I visited UNH I knew it was the place for me" Cavallaro told the NH Notebook. "The recruiting process was extremely long and I heard from a variety of schools and coaches, but Coach Lyons and Coach Mac were the most up front with me. I was in contact with them since my junior year, and I knew as soon as they gave me an opportunity I was going to take it."
Cavallaro played both tight end and linebacker at Hanover, but likely projects as a TE at the next level. He runs good routes, makes tough catches, has good speed and is a very physical kid who can block the heck out of people.
"I just want to come in and improve" Cavallaro explained. "I have a lot to learn, a lot of work to put in and there is no better place to do that than UNH."
New Hampshire is an FCS Division I program. They have qualified for the FCS National Tournament a staggering 12 years in a row. Cavallaro will suit up for the Wildcats alongside his older brother Shawn Cavallaro, who played his red shirt freshman season at running back for UNH this past fall.
"Playing with my brother is all I know really, because we have played together since third grade" said the younger Cavallaro brother. "It will definitely be cool to be back on the field with him, especially in one of the top FCS programs in the country."
Cavallaro's PG year at Milford Academy has helped prepare him for UNH, both on and off the field.
"Milford really challenged me as a football player mentally and physically" Cavallaro concluded. "It was a great experience meeting guys from all over the country, and playing with some of the top recruits in the country. It made me a better player and prepped me well for college football."
