By Matt Porter

Boca Raton senior Austin Burkett will play his college football at Ave Maria, which this fall will play its second football season.

Ave Maria, founded in 1998, is located in Collier County. The Gyrenes, who compete in the NAIA’s Sun Conference, are reportedly the first college football program in Southwest Florida.
