Wofford offers Central Catholic's Balsamo

By Brendan C. Hall

Central Catholic junior safety Mike Balsamo received his second Division 1 FCS offer, from Wofford College, head coach Chuck Adamopoulos told this afternoon.

The Terriers are the second FCS program this week to offer the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Balsamo, one of the Bay State's top defensive back prospects for the 2015 class. Balsamo was an All-Merrimack Valley Conference selection at defensive back, as the Raiders won the inaugural MIAA Division 1 State Championship, the program's first bowl victory since 1998.

Balsamo visited the Spartanburg, S.C. campus yesterday.

"They loved his film, and indicated it would be worth it to go down there for one day," Adamopoulous said.
