Barnegat senior wide receiver Dan Cintron has committed to Lehigh, according to Bengals coach Rob Davis. Cintron, who was an All Shore Media second team All-Conference selection in the fall, finished with 21 catches for 339 yards and 7 TDs and scored 10 TDs overall despite missing two games with illness. Cintron was one of the fastest players in the Shore and is also a dangerous return man on special teams. He is one of, if not the most, high-profile recruit thus far in the three-year history of Barnegat’s program. Cintron joins a Lehigh roster that features former Shore standout Billy Dokouslis (Manalapan), who is a sophomore linebacker/defensive end.
However, the most highly-regarded recruit in Barnegat history appears to be junior Jarrett Darmstatter, who was also an All Shore Media second-teamer in the fall. The 6-4, 238-pound tight end/linebacker has drawn heavy interest from ACC and Big East schools, according to Davis. Coaches from Virginia and Miami have already visited the school to get a look at Darmstatter in person, and North Carolina will be visiting shortly. He had 20 catches for 260 yards and 3 TDs and also is a strong blocker in addition to being the team’s middle linebacker.
One other quick note: St. John Vianney sophomore quarterback/running back/defensive back Charles Davis has transferred to Neptune, which is his hometown, and gives the Scarlet Fliers another weapon on both sides of the ball. Not sure yet how long he has to sit out or if he has to sit out. St. John Vianney is still in the process of searching for a new head coach after John Amabile stepped down shortly after the season.
