Jimmy said, “I would like to especially thank my athletic director, Brandon Slone, for being a true “mentor” to me for my entire four years in high school.” He also thanked receiver coach, Ryan McCartney, for “teaching me great technique and having enormous confidence in my abilities.” Jimmy also thanked “my Father, Jim Saros, who has always been there for me. He always said all you should expect is ‘opportunity.’ What you do with that opportunity is totally up to you.” Jimmy said, “The opportunity to play football at Brown University in the Ivy League has been worth all of the hard work both on the football field and in the classroom.”
