South Range’s Alessi inks with YSU

Joe Alessi: Youngstown State signing

Canfield, OH (WYTV) – South Range senior Joe Alessi officially signed his national letter of intent to play football at Youngstown State University Wednesday.

The running back rushed for 2.507 yards this past season, while scoring 38 touchdowns and averaging nearly 13 yards per carry. He also broke the school’s all-time rushing record.
Alessi made his announcement to stay local with YSU on Sunday night, and is excited to take this next step.

“I love the coaching staff, first and foremost,” he said. “I love Coach Pelini, Coach Brown, and all of them. I love the fact that I’m home locally so I can be here to play in front of my home team. And I love the facilities and everything YSU has to offer.”

Alessi plans to major in Pre-Dental at YSU.
