Boston College was the first school to offer Sillah last summer, followed by offers from Rutgers and Syracuse. But it’s the Scarlet Knights he grew up the biggest fan of.
Sillah played a big role in Mater Dei’s 2016 Group 2, Non-public championship win over Holy Spirit in 2016, sacking quarterback Mike Costabile to cause a turnover on downs and give the Seraphs the ball at the 50-yard line with 11 seconds left to set up Rutgers freshman Eddie Lewis’ game-winning score.
And he played a huge role in the Seraphs returning to the title game in 2018, despie falling to St. Joseph (Hamm.) by the score of 30-14.
The other cities considered as the potential host sites for the 2019 and 2020 NFL drafts include Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City and a combination bid from Cleveland/Canton, Ohio.

Manny Watch 2018 arrived in Chicago on Monday, and the slick-fielding slugger handled the attention like a routine ground ball. The 25-year-old Machado is eligible for free agency after this season and could well be traded by Baltimore this summer, but he is determined to keep the focus on the field for as long as he can.
