Beyond the Games: Darien LaPietro

Beyond the Games: Darien LaPietro (WRGB)

NISKAYUNA, NY (WRGB)--It's been a year of extreme highs and lows for Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake sophomore Darien LaPietro.

Last Spring, he helped lead the BK-BL lacrosse team to a Section II title.

This Fall, he did the same for the Spartans' football team as the quarterback of the Class A Super Bowl champions.

Then in the winter, LaPietro lost his mother to cancer.

That life-changing event played a role in LaPietro's decision on where to spend his college days.

A little over a month ago, the BH-BL multi-sport star passed on an offer from his dream school to play lacrosse right here in the Capital Region at UAlbany.

As he gets set for BH-BL's title defense this spring, he spoke with our Jason Lewis.
