Xaverian's Tamasi commits to Amherst

Xaverian Brothers senior running back and linebacker Chris Tamasi has committed to Amherst College to play football.

The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder declared his commitment in an e-mail sent to ESPN Boston. Tamasi's senior season came to an abrupt end on Thanksgiving Day in loss to St. John's Prep in a game that decided the Catholic Conference championship.

"My teammates and myself are very fortunate for the bond we share and values that we have learned and will never forget," Tamasi wrote in an e-mail.
