Betts played all four years for the Blue Devils and finished with 59 career assists. He was named to the Suburban League American Conference first team his last two years and was a Division II all-district selection last fall.

Academically, Betts is a four-time distinguished scholar and a member of the National Honor Society during his junior year. He plans to study computer science in college.

Betts will play for Dan Perritano, who is entering his 26th year as Penn State Behrend’s head coach.
