The 6-foot-3, 214-pound Belcher leaves Reading as one of its all-time greatest field generals, finishing with a 29-6 record as a three-year starter. He made ESPN Boston's All-State Team in 2012 after leading the Rockets to their second MIAA Division 2 Super Bowl title in four seasons, going 13-0. This season, Belcher totaled 21 touchdowns as the Rockets reached the Division 2 North Semifinals in the newly-aligned MIAA State Championship.
Belcher also had varying degress of interest from Delaware and Villanova at the time of his commitment.
