Since they were 4 years old and playing on the same T-ball team, Tim McConnell and Matt Fitzpatrick have been riding in the backs of automobiles and talking about their next game.
They did the same thing on Thursday afternoon - except their next game will be for the Duquesne University football team.
McConnell and Fitzpatrick, seniors at Bishop Eustace and best friends, both committed Thursday to attend Duquesne on football scholarships.
The two plan to sign their national letters of intent on Wednesday. They discussed their decision as they rode back to South Jersey from the Duquesne campus in Pittsburgh.
