In his final season at Conwell-Egan, quick and bruising running back Patrick Garwo sparked the Eagles to a 13-1 record, the Catholic League Blue Division title, and the quarterfinal round of the PIAA Class 3A state playoffs.

“Players like him don’t come around very often,” Conwell-Egan coach Jack Techtmann said.

The 5-foot-9, 205-pounder rushed for 2,027 yards and 30 touchdowns this year. He added five more scores, on four receptions and a kick return.

Garwo will sign a national a letter of intent with Boston College during the early signing period that begins Wednesday. He will do so in a 3 p.m. ceremony at the Levittown school.

For his career, Garwo, who has bench-pressed 360 pounds, rushed for more than 5,000 yards and 71 TDs.

“He’s tough, his vision is off the charts, he regularly breaks tackles, and he makes amazing cutbacks,” Techtmann said.

A three-star prospect according to 247Sports, Garwo was recruited by North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Temple, among others.

“As good a player as he is, he’s an even better leader,” Techtmann said. “That’s one of the things Boston College really likes about him. I could see him being a captain by his junior year.”

Imhotep Charter, which reached the Class 4A state final before losing to Erie’s Cathedral Prep, is expected to have a pair of seniors make their college commitments official on Wednesday.
