Congratulations to Starz ’21 Attacker, Aidan Rubio, on his recent commitment to NCAA D3 Swarthmore College. Rubio is a 4.0 student at O’Dea High School. In addition to being a member of the National Honor Society he is a Senior Student Ambassador.

“My experience at Starz was like none other. Having the opportunity to meet coaches and other players was exceptionally helpful throughout the recruiting process,” stated Rubio.  “The most influential coach in my Starz career was Coach Mike Pittas. Coach Pittas taught me about how to tailor my game to myself and how to hone in my own skills on and off the field. Starz also offered exposure to other programs and events all over the country. Not only did Starz teach me things on the field, but also lessons necessary to participate in our society today, like respecting others and their abilities. I can’t thank Starz enough for the exposure, teaching, and overall life-changing experience they provided me with through my many years with the program.”

“I’m very excited for Aidan to take the next steps in his academic and athletic career at Swarthmore,” commented Coach Pittas.  “Aidan has allowed himself these opportunities as a result of his work ethic, coachability, and drive to improve. Over the past five years I’ve watched him learn, apply, and grow both on and off the field. Swarthmore will be adding a great teammate and person in Aidan. These same characteristics will serve him well in his next pursuits. I’m proud of Aidan, and we’re all excited to see what he accomplishes throughout his next journey.”
