Football: QB Kasdorf headed to NCAA Division II school

April 8, 2010 |  9:13 am

Quarterback Ryan Kasdorf of Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, the Gatorade state player of the year when he was a junior, has committed to Pace University, an NCAA Division II school in New York.

It has been one of the strangest stories, a quarterback who rarely lost in high school and had excellent stats and top grades but didn't receive a single Division I scholarship offer. He passed for more than 5,500 yards and 51 touchdowns

"The things that made him so good are his competitiveness and resourcefulness," Coach Kevin Rooney said. "He's going to do some incredible things."

Kasdorf is 6-1 1/2, but his lack of superior arm strength is what probably scared off most schools.
