Rich Kelly 2017

Fairfield Prep alum and Cheshire Academy post-graduate Rich Kelly became the first player to commit to new Quinnipiac head coach Baker Dunleavy on Thursday.

Kelly announced his decision via twitter.

Kelly had a decorated high school career at Fairfield Prep. He was a key piece to the Jesuits' 2015 Class LL state championship and then took his game to a whole new level as a senior as he emerged as one of the best players in the CIAC resulting in both the New Haven Register Area MVP and the Hearst Connecticut Media MVP.

Following a succesful summer with Project Triple Threat, which resulted in scholarship offers from top division II schools, Kelly arrived at Cheshire Academy hoping to prove himself a division I prospect while competing against unprecedented competition. Again, he was able to take his game to new levels, earning multiple division I honors in the process and being named second team All-New England in Class AA.

Below are some highlights of his post-graduate season.
