“First off, I would like to thank my parents for believing in me and making countless sacrifices to get me to this point in my life, I would not be where I am today without you,” Truss said, via his Twitter. “I would like to thank my coaches and teammates at Bishop Hendricken for sticking with me and making me a better player on the field as well as a better man and person. Lastly, I want to thank the many coaches out there that believed in me enough to offer me a scholarship to their university. With that said, I would like to announce that I am 110% committed to the University of Georgia! Go Dawgs!”
