Duxbury High senior offensive tackle Gordon Acha has verbally committed to Elon University for the fall of 2012, he announced this morning on his twitter account.
"[I'm] an official Elon Phoenix class of 2016," he wrote.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Acha was a force for the Dragons this fall, in his first full year as the starting left tackle. As the blind side for quarterback Matt O'Keefe, he helped pave the way for over 3,000 yards of total offense as the Dragons endured their second straight 13-0 season and captured their second straight Super Bowl championship.
Acha was named to ESPN Boston's MIAA All-State Team, and was the inaugural recipient of ESPN Boston's Lineman of the Year award. He was receiving various levels of interest in the FBS and FCS subdivisions of Division 1.
