Feb. 15, 2013
STORRS, Conn. - Richard Lagow, a 6-6, 213-pound quarterback from Plano, Texas, and Plano Senior High School has signed a National Letter of Intent to enroll at the University of Connecticut. Lagow becomes the 23rd member of UConn’s incoming class of freshmen.

UConn QB commit Lagow leads Plano to state 7-on-7 title

Plano won the Fox Sports Southwest 7-on-7 State Tournament at Texas A&M. Plano led the way in a 3-touchdown margin over highly talented Manvel with the championship game played on Kyle Field. Lagow led Plano to an 8-0 record through pool play and the Championship Bracket. He was named the tournament MVP among a field of 64 qualifiers.
"We barely qualified but we believed we could win state," Lagow aid. "We came out and proved that by playing with a chip on our shoulder."
Lagow committed to UConn a month ago following a visit. Connecticut had made a standing offer in May and Lagow decided to go with the Huskies, who hope to at least see an improvement in their Texas recruiting with SMU and Houston entering the Big East Conference in the latest round of college realignment.
As a first-year starter for the Wildcats last season, Lagow thew for 1,646 yards and 13 touchdowns for Plano.
Plano isn’t known as a hotbed for quarterbacks with a run-oriented offense, but Lagow could change a perception of a program which likes its quarterbacks to wear more work-man like numbers in the 20s rather than single digits or in the teens. Lagow is comfortable wearing No. 21, which is the same his sister Katherine wore for Hockaday and LSU soccer.
