SCA's Cherwinski picks Wilkes

WILKES-BARRE - Southern Columbia senior Ryan Cherwinski has committed to Wilkes University to play football for head coach Frank Sheptock.

Cherwinski, a 6-foot, 1-inch, 250-pound offensive and defensive tackle was a first-team All-State selection, and also earned an All-PHAC first-team nod this past season. A News-Item All-Area selection, Cherwinski was a three-year letter winner at Southern Columbia.

Wilkes, an NCAA Division-III program that plays in the Middle Atlantic Conference, was 5-5 overall last season.

Cherwinski plans on majoring in biology with a minor in pre-medicine in the fall at Wilkes.
