Sheepshead Bay H.S. defensive end Andre Civil has accepted an offer from Rutgers’ Scarlet Knights football team, making him the second Brooklynite selected this year. The 6-foot-3, 238-pound student will head to the banks of the ol’ Raritan to join the Class of 2009, and he will play alongside South Shore offensive tackle Jamal Wilson. He chose the Knights over Big East rivals Syracuse and Connecticut. [via NY Post]
As a Sheepshead resident AND a Rutgers alumnus, all I have to say is…
Eat it, Syracuse and Connecticut!
Keep Rutgers colors to the fore,
For they must win so fight, fight, fight!
And we’ll advance some more to score,
The Rutgers flag flies high tonight, alright, alright.
We’ll fling the Scarlet banner out,
And Rutgers men will fight, fight, fight!
The bells of Queens each victr’y shout,
The bells of Queens must ring tonight.
R! U! RAH! RAH! R! U! RAH! RAH! RAH!
HOORAH! HOORAH! RUTGERS! RAH! RAH!
FIGHT! TEAM! UP! STREAM!
UP! STREAM! RED! TEAM! RAH! RAH! RUTGERS! RAH!
