Citing a similar offense to the one he ran at Archbishop Spalding, a quality education and the proximity of the campus to his home, Cavaliers senior quarterback Evan Fochtman committed to Navy, choosing the Annapolis school over Army West Point and Penn. "It was just the opportunity that it gives me later in life, the opportunity to play at such a high level and a great education," said Fochtman, who will report to Annapolis this summer instead of heading to the Naval Academy Prep School in Rhode Island. "I think [Navy's run-heavy offense] fits me extremely well and that's part of the reason." Spalding coach Kyle Schmitt also believes his two-way-threat quarterback will transition nicely to Navy's option offense, as has former Cavaliers and current Midshipmen signal caller Zach Abey. Fochtman, who shared the Jim Rhodes Memorial Trophy, given by the Touchdown Club of Annapolis to the outstanding high school football player in Anne Arundel County, completed 128 of 207 passes this season for 1,747 yards and 20 touchdowns while rushing for 1,120 yards and 14 scores on 153 carries.
