Spalding quarterback hopes to continue MIAA success at Ivy League school


Archbishop Spalding High quarterback Austin Tutas has given a verbal commitment to play football and further his education at Yale University.

Tutas made the announcement, via Twitter.

“Committed… For God, For Country, and For Yale,” Tutas said in a tweet June 26.

As a junior last season, Tutas passed 2,155 yards and 18 touchdowns for the Cavaliers (5-6), who reached the MIAA A Conference semifinals. The Anne Arundel County school finished 10th in the final VSN Top 20.

Yale won the Ivy League championship last year, led by Kurt Rawlings, who was VSN’s Offensive Player of the Year for John Carroll School in 2015. He finished in the Top 10 in every career passing category for Yale, and was the Ivy League’s Offensive Player of the Year last fall.

Tutas hopes to conclude his Spalding career with a MIAA A championship in 2020. He led a valiant Cavalier comeback in a league semifinal at McDonogh last fall, completing 10 of 15 passes for 89 yards in the second half.

Trailing 19-0 at halftime, Spalding rallied to take the lead in the fourth, but McDonogh got a late touchdown for a 29-23 victory.
