Jasper signs deal with Tiffin
SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville senior Austin Jasper signed a letter of intent to attend Tiffin University, a Division II school that competes in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Tiffin, located in Ohio, competes in one of the most competitive NCAA Division II conferences in the country. Current NFL starters, Chris Ivory of the New York Jets, and Nate Washington of the Tennessee Titans, played at Tiffin. "Austin realizes he will need to continue with his work ethic and competitive spirit as he adjusts to everything at the next level," said S-E head football coach and Austin's father, Mike Jasper. "When it came down to making his decision, I think Tiffin was just the right fit for what he wanted in both a football program and academically."
Jasper was a dual threat for the Marauders leading the team in tackles on defense the past three seasons, and also leading the offense his senior season in receiving and touchdowns. Jasper was a three-time all-state selection at linebacker, and was named to the New York State Sportswriters Association Class C first team this past season.
