Amherst’s Glodowski to play football at Minnesota-Duluth
Amherst High School senior Marcus Glodowski signed a National Letter of Intent to play college football at the NCAA Division II University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) during a ceremony at the school Wednesday, Feb. 7.
The 6-1, 175-pound Glodowski is expected to play defensive back at UMD, after he started at quarterback, defensive back and wide receiver at Amherst.
Glodowski was an Honorable Mention All-Central Wisconsin Conference-8 (CWC-8) defensive back as a junior, when he also started at wide receiver on Amherst’s 2016 team that won its second consecutive WIAA Division 5 State Championship.
Glodowski took over as the Falcons’ starter at quarterback as a senior, when he finished 11th in the state in rushing this season with 2,159 yards rushing and 35 touchdowns on 200 carries, and was named Honorable Mention All-State by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association (WFCA), First Team All-CWC Large and the CWC Large Offensive Player of the Year.
Glodowski helped lead Amherst (13-1) to the State Championship Game for the fourth year in a row, where he rushed for a Division 5 State Championship Game record 269 yards and four touchdowns on 32 carries offense, and came up with a key interception late to seal a 28-21 victory over Lake Country Lutheran that gave Amherst its third consecutive State Title.
