ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- When they needed a big play this year, the McQuaid football team turned to Mark Passero.

The senior running back was a beast for the Knights and helped lead them to the Section 5 Class AA Championship game.


"As a team, I think we did great, did something McQuaid hasn't done in a long time. A lot of people did their part, that's how a good team works."

Mark is hanging up his football cleats after high school. Next year, he plans on studying pre-med at Holy Cross.

"I love science, it's so interesting. I really like learning about what's happening in your life."

Mark is also an active volunteer and recently, the National Honor Society member spent his time with a program that helped middle school students from other schools prepare for high school in social and academic settings.

"I was thinking about it and thought, 'I used to get these talks, it's nice, you can teach them the right stuff.'"

Mark is doing his best to be a 'Man For Others'.

Congratulations Mark Passero, the News10NBC Scholar-Athlete of the Week!
