Cub quarterback Sean O'Malley headed to Lafayette
Senior quarterback SEAN O'MALLEY, who finished his signal calling career with the Cubs with more passing ards (4,199) than any other player who lined up behind center in Loyola grid annals, will take his field generalship skills to Lafayette College. Lafayette is a member of the Football Championship Subdivision (NCAA Division IAA) Patriot League. O'Malley is the seventh senior Cub football player to commit to play at the collegiate level.
There are at least two other players from the 2016 squad that should be disclosing their collegiate destinations in the next few days.
