Londonderry High School quarterback Eric Fairweather committed to St. Anselm College on Saturday night.
Fairweather, New Hampshire's Gatorade Player of the Year for the 2014 season, said he was also considering Assumption, Stonehill and Bryant. Stonehill and Bryant recruited him to play defensive back, but St. Anselm is bringing him in to play quarterback.
"That's one of the reasons I'm going there," Fairweather said. "I really want to give quarterback a try in college. I really enjoyed it there when I went for my overnight visit (earlier this month). I think it's the best fit for me financially and academically. Plus I really like their offense."
"I think the opportunity to play quarterback was a big selling point," Londonderry coach Jimmy Lauzon said. "He wanted to stick with quarterback. I think he could surprise some people at quarterback. We didn't really have to throw much, but he can sling it with the best of them."
"It's close to home and that was more of a positive than a negative," Fairweather said. "When I'm on campus I don't think I'll feel like I'm just down the road."
