Former Deering quarterback Jamie Ross, a Fitzpatrick Trophy finalist and the school’s 2010 Fall Male Athlete of the Year, recently capped a very successive stint as the punter at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. Ross graduated last May with a B.S. in business administration and will graduate in August with a Masters of Arts graduate degree in sports communication and media. Ross leaves the football program as the school record-holder for longest punt (78 yards), highest per game punting average (48.5 yards), highest punting average per season (40-plus yards) and highest amount of punting yards in a season (3,272). Ross was named Special Teams Player of the Game on five occasions and was an East Coast Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week and a North East Conference Special Teams Conference Player of the Week once apiece. Ross was part of an NEC Conference championship team in 2013 and 2014 and participated in the North/South FCS Division One All-Star Game in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last year.
