Former Youngstown State quarterback and Girard High School standout Mark Waid announced Thursday on Twitter that he’s committing to Bentley University to continue his football career.

Bentley is a Division II program located in Waltham, Massachusetts.

In his post, Waid said, “Honored to continue my football career at Bentley University as a graduate transfer, while also receiving a dual masters in Finance and Business Administration. All glory to God.”

Waid started at quarterback in four games for YSU during its shortened spring 2021 season, and played in six of those contests. In 2019 under then-head coach Bo Pelini, he appeared in four games. In the fall of 2021, he appeared in two games for YSU as an H-back after Demeatric Crenshaw won the starting quarterback position during fall camp. Waid entered the transfer portal in October.

During his career at YSU, Waid completed 69 of 112 passes for 599 yards and three touchdowns.
