BROOKLYN - Poly Prep football star Cameron Stapleton has officially chosen where he will spend his post-high school years playing.

?[UConn was] always there from the beginning, I just loved it, I was a part of a family, just like here at Poly,? he says.

Stapleton plays both defensive end and tight end for the Blue Devils.

He also fielded scholarship offers from Syracuse and Temple universities.
