Senior picked for all-state football team

Binghamton senior picked for all-state football team
Posted on 01/23/2019
The high school football career of a standout student athlete is ending on a high note after he was named to the all-state team.
Senior Nick Zikuski was recently selected for Class AA all-state football team. The recognition came courtesy of the New York State Sportswriters Association, an organization of sportswriters from around the state that comes together annually to select the most promising players in high school football.
Zikuski, a key offensive player for the Patriots, was the top pick from Section 4 and earned a spot on the third all-state team. Zikuski said the all-state nod was a proud moment for both himself and Binghamton High School varsity football coach, Mike Ramil.
“It’s huge. Ever since 10th grade, it’s kind of been my dream to get the accolades, and go to the big schools,” he said. “The hard work has finally been paying off, and it’s been showing.”
Zikuski is one of the captains of the varsity team, which finished the 2018 season with a record of 6-4.
Zikuski is still weighing his collegiate options, considering schools such as Colgate University, Wagner College and the University of Buffalo. Zikuski plans on playing college football and pursuing a career in the medical field.
Congratulations, Nick! You’ve made us Patriot Proud!
