MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (April 21, 2017) — Two Mount Vernon High School seniors, both starters on the Mount Vernon Boys Varsity Basketball team, the 2017 New York State Class AA Championship team, signed letters of intent for full athletic college scholarships on April 21.
Gregory Calixte signed with George Mason University of Virginia and Noah Morgan signed with Fairleigh Dickinson University of New Jersey.
“This is the ultimate goal of every Mount Vernon basketball player, to win a scholarship and to win states,” said Boys Varsity Basketball Head Coach Bob Cimmino. “If the only thing we did was to strive for wins, we wouldn’t be fulfilling the true intent of what a student-athlete is, which is to be a good citizen and an exceptional student. The work in the classroom has to equal the work on the court. These young men play hard and are great friends. They’ve culminated their high school years by making their parents very happy.”
