Boys' Latin punter Dominic Maggio commits to Wake Forest

Boys' Latin junior Dominic Maggio has orally committed to play football at Wake Forest in 2016.

Maggio, a kicker and punter for the Lakers, was an All-Metro first-team selection last season after he averaged 44.7 yards per punt.

He placed 11 punts inside his opponents' 20-yard line and thumped a 62-yard punt in a game vs. St. Paul's.

"He's so good we're going to have to change our coverage," Boys' Latin coach Ritchie Schell said last season. "Sometimes, he out-kicks our coverage."

Maggio said in a news release he "couldn't be happier."

"I have the opportunity to play football at the highest level in a amazing conference as well as attend a top 25 university academically," he said. "Wake Forest will quickly become a second home for me, as the coaching staff already treats me as family. They are special people at a special place."

Maggio's father, Kirk, was an All-American punter at UCLA in 1989.
