Bridgeport's Alex Thorne to Play Football at Washington & Jefferson

Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport senior Alex Thorne chose to continue playing football at the collegiate level on Monday. Thorne chose to play at Washington and Jefferson College.

Thorne admitted the Presidents' coaching staff plans on playing him at the slot receiver position. Thorne played a lot of running back and defense for the Class AA State Champion Bridgeport football team in 2013.

Washington & Jefferson is widely regarded as an excellent academic school. He said he's looking forward to the challenge ahead.

"It's a D-III school, so I figured I would be getting a lot more playing time there, rather than going somewhere else where I would just be sitting on the bench until my senior year. I would rather just try to play as I get there," Thorne said.
