Former Ponte Vedra star quarterback and 2016 Mr. Florida award winner Nick Tronti announced last weekend via Twitter that he will be transferring from Indiana University.
“I am forever grateful to Indiana University, Coach Allen, Coach Sheridan and Coach DeBord for giving me an opportunity to compete with the best in college football,” Tronti tweeted on Sunday, April 29. “I will always be thankful for the experiences and lessons that I learned while in Bloomington. However, I will be transferring from Indiana University. I am now exploring all of my options to continue to chase my football dreams.”
Tronti did not reveal any information pertaining to where he will transfer. The former Shark redshirted the 2017 season, and was named offensive scout team player of the year and a four-time scout team player of the week for the Hoosiers.
The quarterback led Ponte Vedra on a magical playoff run in 2016 that ended in a heartbreaking 35-33 loss to American Heritage High School in Ponte Vedra’s first ever-state championship appearance. He passed for 3,333 yards and 34 touchdowns and rushed for 662 yards and 19 touchdowns throughout his senior season, which ultimately resulted in him being crowned Mr. Football in December by a statewide panel of high school football coaches and media representatives. Tronti won the award in convincing fashion, with 12 of the 23 first-place votes.
