Jupiter Christian’s Ryan Powers going to prep school 

By Matt Porter

Jupiter Christian linebacker Ryan Powers will follow in the footsteps of his brother and play a post-graduate season at a New England prep school.

Powers will attend Proctor (N.H.) Academy this year. He plans to play football and lacrosse at the school, his father and Jupiter Christian coach Bill Powers said.

Powers was named a first-team All-Area linebacker after posting 120 tackles (14 for loss), four sacks, eight pass breakups and two interceptions in his senior season.

His brother Will spent this year at Salisbury (Conn.) School and recently committed to Princeton.

Powers becomes the sixth of the seven seniors on Jupiter Christian’s 2010 team who have committed to play football after high school.
