Swanton’s Lathan Pawlowicz Signs with ONU
The Ohio Northern University (ONU) Polar Bears football program has officially added Swanton Bulldog senior Lathan Pawlowicz to their list of incoming recruits for the 2022-2023 academic school year. Lathan signed his National Letter of Intent yesterday in front of family, friends and fellow Bulldog athletes at Swanton High School.
“They’ve been talking to me since my junior year. The coaches there really believe in me. Ever since I went to their camp back in May of last year, they knew I was going to be their guy. That’s what they kept telling me,” said Lathan, explaining his decision to attend ONU. From his discussions with the Polar Bear coaches, Lathan believes he will be playing the tight end position as they look to expand their passing game.
Moving on to play at the next level allows Lathan to realize a life-long dream. “Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted to play college football. It was my dream,” he said.
When Lathan heads to Ada and the ONU campus this summer, he hopes to reunite with Swanton alumni Xavier Williams who also went to ONU to play football and is still involved with the program. Lathan plans on majoring in Manufacturing Technology.
