After just one year as the Wildkits’ signal caller, Ben Tarpey will be a preferred walk-on for the Miami of Ohio Redhawks.

Tarpey’s performance during his senior year sparkled as he broke the ETHS single season passing yards record totaling 2,027 yards, eclipsing the previous record of 1,982 yards set by Marcus White in 1994. Miami of Ohio checked all of the boxes Tarpey wanted when searching for a college.

“It’s a really strong academic school, the football there is great, I mean it’s division I football, you get to go up against the best competition in the country,” Tarpey said.
