Quarterback Marcello Trigg, the county's top player last season, commits to the I-AA school.

TAMPA - Robinson quarterback Marcello Trigg, who won this past season's Guy Toph award for the county's top player, orally committed to Division I-AA Bucknell on Monday.
Meanwhile, Middleton defensive end Marcus Broxie and Durant tight end Josh Fussell have orally committed to West Virginia and New Mexico, respectively.
Commitments can become binding starting Wednesday.
Trigg is the career leader among bay area quarterbacks with 82 touchdown passes and threw for more than 7,000 yards. He chose Bucknell over several Ivy League schools.
"I think this is a great situation for Marcello," Robinson coach Mike DePue said of Trigg, who has an A average and excelled in math classes. "Bucknell is a great engineering school, and I think Marcello can use this to give his life a great start. I couldn't be happier for Marcello because he is a wonderful person."
Broxie played just one season at Middleton after transferring from Tampa Bay Tech. But he immediately became one of the Tigers' top performers and earned Times all-county second-team honors. He chose the Mountaineers over N.C. State and Rutgers.
"I think he's going to be a great player," Middleton coach Harry Hubbard said. "He has all the physical tools to do that."
Fussell is the third Durant player to commit in the past week, following quarterback Chip Bowden (Army) and offensive lineman Mike Cannon (New Mexico). Fussell picked the Lobos over Army after visiting the school's Albuquerque campus last weekend.
"To have these kids go on and continue to compete at the next level is outstanding," Durant coach Mike Gottman said. "I'm excited for them, and I think they're all going to do great."
