Senior Jake Wallace of Watauga High has signed his national letter of intent with Emory & Henry College in Emory, Va.
Emory & Henry is a Division III school in the Old Dominion Conference. Wallace, an all-Northwestern 4A performer his junior year, will concentrate on football. But he might play baseball as well. Wallace, a three-sport athlete at WHS, has suffered through an injury-plagued year. But he was a pinch runner on Tuesday night for the WHS baseball team and scored the game-winning run on Phil Gordon’s single in the ninth inning as WHS beat East Burke, 1-0. And wide receiver Dylan Crump of Hibriten High School in Lenoir has signed his national letter of intent to play football at Catawba College, a Division II school in the South Atlantic Conference. Crump, a great athlete, only caught 13 passes last year, but Hibriten, primarily a running team, only threw the ball 104 times. Hibriten will join WHS, Hickory, St. Stephens, South Caldwell, Alexander Central and Fred T. Foard as members of the newly-formed Northwestern 3A/4A Conference in the fall of 2009
