With this school year’s senior class already being halfway to graduation, college has been a topic of discussion. Two seniors, Brandon Robaugh and Elijah Cincinnati, knew they had to make a choice as to where they were going. They both recently committed to college for sports. 

Cincinnati, a forward for the Trinity boy’s soccer team, has recently signed to play the next four years of his career at Gannon University. He has been playing soccer competitively for 13 years. This past season, he broke the school’s record for career goals (the number of goals scored throughout all four years of high school) that had stood for 39 years, after scoring his 90th goal. Cincinnati chose Gannon because the coaches and staff were very welcoming, and the academics offered everything he was looking for. 

“Gannon was the one school that made me feel at home,” Cincinnati stated. 

He wanted to give special thanks to his family and loved ones closest to him for driving him to and from practices and supporting him, as well as a thanks to both his high school and Cup/travel coaches. 

Robaugh has recently committed to La Roche University to continue his baseball career. He plays third base, outfield, and also pitches for the Trinity boy’s baseball team. He has been playing baseball since he was three years old and has not participated in any other sports. He chose La Roche because of the coaching staff and the history the team has of winning. One of the things he is looking forward to his senior season is the final shot at the WPIAL Championship with his best friends. Robaugh would like to thank his family for always supporting him and giving him the opportunity to join the world of baseball. 

“I also wanted to thank the La Roche coaching staff for helping me improve and giving me an opportunity to play at the collegiate level,” Robaugh added. 

With the recruiting process being so difficult right now, these boys worked their hardest and proved that something good will come of it. Congratulations Elijah Cincinnati and Brandon Robaugh on your commitments!
