Former Andover High School quarterback C.J. Scarpa has transferred to Merrimack and will play his fifth year (a graduate season) with the Warriors after spending the last three seasons at Bentley.
Scarpa appeared in eight games for the Falcons last season, completing nearly 60 percent of his passes for 901 yards; he also threw for eight touchdowns with six interceptions.
Scarpa enters the season as the only quarterback with NCAA experience on the Merrimack roster. Early in training camp, it appears that he’s competing for the starting job with sophomore transfer Cam Hayes, who played for Nassau Community College last season.
Scarpa was MVP of the Merrimack Valley Conference as a senior for Andover in 2013. In his high school career, Scarpa threw for 4,429 yards and 51 touchdowns. Scarpa was named Eagle Tribune Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 and was also a Boston Herald and Boston Globe All-Scholastic.
After graduating from Andover, Scarpa spent once season with Division I-AA Elon University before transferring to Bentley.
