Why did you choose the school: “I chose Delaware because of the strong balance between academics and athletics and the proximity to my home. We’re only about two hours away in New Jersey, so my parents will be able to make it out to all the games. Those were the two main factors in my decision.”
Team outlook for next season: “The team has big expectations this year. We have an extremely talented team that could do big things if we set our minds to it. We’re hoping to win the Group State Final and then move on to win the Tournament of Champions.”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank my family who has been so supportive of me throughout this entire process. I’d also like to thank my Delbarton coaches, Chuck Ruebling, Matt Kovachik, and Craig Fleishman.”
Other info: Marone is the son of former Delaware standout Moses Marone, who is 11th all-time on the school’s scoring list and was a key member of Springfield-Delco’s state championship team in 1978.
