Heritage High School (Leesburg/Loudoun County) leaned on Gio Seigler (2019 WR/DB 6-0 170) last fall to provide offensive pop in a high scoring offense.
The 2017 squad averaged 24.9 points a game on their way to a 7-3 season that saw them miss the playoffs. It’s rare for a team these days to miss the playoffs with seven wins, but the Pride did just that last fall. Only six teams from Region 4C made the playoffs last fall, due to a pre-arranged agreement.
That gives Seigler and the Pride additional motivation coming into the Fall.
Seigler has now cleared his mind, made his college commitment and he’s ready for football. He held around a dozen offers, but Richmond was his pick.
“I would like to thank my family and friends and supporting me through this whole process. Especially my mom for pushing me and making sure I never give up and being my backbone through thick and thin. A special thank you to the Heritage Football staff for molding me into the student athlete I am today,” said Seigler via Twitter. After thanking all of the coaches who recruited him, Seigler announced his commitment: “I would like to officially announce my commitment to the University of Richmond.”

In Seigler, Richmond picks up a commitment from an athlete who is equally adept on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Seigler was a First Team All-Dulles District selection at Wide Receiver and Defensive Back, and he was a First Team All-Region 5C Defensive Back in 2017. As a defensive back, he tallied 63 tackles, 4 INT, 1 forced fumble, 17 pass break ups and a touchdown.
