Flacco had a decent junior season for Delaware, getting acclimated to his new teammates and offense. He followed that up with a stellar senior campaign, as the Fightin' Blue Hens fell just one game short of capturing the NCAA Championship Subdivision title in a tough loss to Appalachian State.
At Audubon High School, Flacco was a
two-time New Jersey All-Group II, All-South Jersey and All-Colonial
Conference first-team selection. He was named the Colonial Conference
Athlete of the Year and South Jersey Touchdown Club Offensive Back of
the Year as a senior. He was also a South Jersey Touchdown Club
first-team All-Academic, Courier Post Scholar Athlete of the Year and
Brooks-Irvine Offensive Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
He received Super Prep All-Northeast honors and was rated the 33rd-best prospect in New Jersey by that recruiting service. Flacco was rated one of the nation's top 40 "pro-style" quarterbacks by Rivals100.com and earned Prep Star All-East Region accolades.
