CB South Trio Commits to Play Collegiate Football

On Friday, Feb. 9, 2018, Central Bucks South seniors Pat Fleisch, Noah Collachi and Jason Horvath were recognized for committing to continue their football careers at the collegiate level.

Noah Collachi – West Chester University (Football)
Exercise Science
Final list of colleges: West Chester, Kutztown, East Stroudsburg, Shippensburg
Reasons for choosing West Chester: “When I went on my official visit, I felt that I fit in with the team a lot. I liked the coaching staff, the facilities are nice, the campus is very nice, and they’re actually very good for what I want to major in.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in football at the collegiate level?  “My dad played at West Chester, so I always had the goal to play in college.”
Coach Tom Hetrick says:  “Noah Collachi was one of the most dynamic defensive linemen in the history of this school. He was deceptively athletic, he’s a very strong kid, and he’s a fierce competitor. I think over the three years that he was here, especially his junior and senior year, opponents and opponent’s coaches would often comment on the dominant force that he was and the ability to wreak havoc on the defensive line and ultimately do the things up front to allow the linebackers in our system to make plays. He’s one of the most gifted football players to ever come through this school.”

Pat Fleisch – Bloomsburg University (Football)
Secondary Education or Psychology
Final list of colleges:  Bloomsburg, Kutztown, California (Pa.), Sacred Heart
Reasons for choosing Bloomsburg:  “I felt at home at Bloomsburg, I had a great experience there – very nice people, very homey.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in football at the collegiate level?  “When I started playing in seventh grade, I didn’t think I was good enough, and I really wasn’t the guy I am today until 10th grade. It was the coaches that helped me out. When I started the fifth game of my 10th grade season, I knew this is where I wanted to be and I wanted to play college football.”
Coach Tom Hetrick says:  “Pat Fleisch is one of the toughest kids that has come through here. He is a fierce competitor. We don’t have many guys that play on both sides of the ball, and for two years, he was a two-way starter and contributed great things on both sides of the ball. As a high school football player, he was a dominant physical force, and his strength at both offensive tackle and defensive end – he made things look very easy, and he did amazing things on both sides of the ball for us and will be greatly missed.”

Jason Horvath – Clarion University (Football)
Final list of colleges:  Clarion, Misericordia, Wesley, King’s
Reasons for choosing Clarion:  “A lot of things. I don’t think there were any cons about the campus in general. It’s a good size, the facilities are beautiful. I stepped on the campus, and I just fell in love with it.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in football at the collegiate level?  “I kind of wanted to wait and see how my senior year went just because junior year I didn’t have much to show. Once senior year ended, I committed myself to playing in college.:
Coach Tom Hetrick says:  “Jason Horvath was actually a converted receiver – we converted him from the defensive side of the ball, and he has some natural athletic abilities that allowed him to transition very easily over to the defensive side of the ball. He led our team in interceptions and has great ball skills as a defensive back. Those translated back over to the offensive side of the ball where he made some big catches in big moments for us. I think he’s going to have a very successful career at Clarion.”
