(WHTM) – Steelton-Highspire quarterback Alex Erby announced his commitment to play football at the U.S. Naval Academy live on abc27 on Monday evening.

Erby is the all-time leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns by a Pennsylvania high school quarterback. Both records were set during the 2023 high school football season.

“Just looking back on that list, I was looking at it last night a bit and just the names and the accomplishments,” said Erby after breaking the touchdown record. “Some hall of famers on that list too so I’m just blessed for the opportunity.”

Erby was a finalist for Mr. PA Football earlier this year and was named Player of the Year in 1A football after the 2022 season where Erby led Steel-High to a Class 1A state title.
