Fox Selected for East-West Game PDF Print

Watauga High senior Alex Fox has been invited to play in the East-West Senior All-Star Game in Greensboro on July 18. The contest will be played at Grimsley High School at Jamison Stadium.
It's a fitting reward for Fox,

a four-year varsity player. Fox, following a disappointing junior year that was cut short by a knee injury, turned in an all-conference season last fall on a WHS squad that went 7-6 and made the state playoffs for the fifth time in the last six years. Fox, who has not made any verbal commitments to play football next season, led the Pioneers with 112 tackles, including 37 solo stops. He also had ten tackles-for-loss, forced three fumbles, had 2.5 quarterback sacks, and three interceptions. He returned one of his interceptions for a touchdown, and he picked off a pass that set up WHS's winning touchdown against Alexander Central in the opening round of the state playoffs.
Fox becomes the third WHS player since 2008 to be chosen for the East-West game. Jordan Pineda was chosen to play in last year's game, but bypassed the honor when he was upgraded from a gray-shirt recruit to a red-shirt recruit by Wake Forest University and attended summer school. Casey Augustine, currently a red-shirt senior at Wingate University, played in the East-West game in 2008.
Fox plans on attending the University of North Carolina next fall to concentrate on his studies.
