"Penn State is getting a truly exceptional young man. As the new head football coach here at St. Christopher's, I was more than excited to get the opportunity to coach one of the best football players our school has ever produced... Garrett as a captain on our 2014 St. Christopher's football team transformed himself from the lead player on the field to a coach / mentor / cheerleader off the field. He was everything a great leader should be both encouraging and positive towards his teammates - during the ups and the downs."
