Football: Cardinal Newman’s Stenz, Jupiter Christian’s Garland sign scholarships 

By Matt Porter

A couple football recruiting updates to pass along on a gorgeous Friday afternoon:

Cardinal Newman LB/OL Phil Stenz signed with Catholic University of America (Washington, D.C.). Stenz was a captain for the Crusaders.

Jupiter Christian two-way lineman Drew Garland signed with Bethel University in Tennessee. Five of Jupiter Christian’s seven 2011 seniors have signed football scholarships, head coach Bill Powers said.

That should become six in the next two weeks, Powers added. Powers’ son Ryan, a first-team All-Area linebacker, is weighing scholarship offers from Cushing Academy (Mass.) and Proctor Academy (N.H.). Both are New England prep schools.
