Watauga High football coach Tim Pruitt has announced that senior Ethan Poulos will officially walk on to play football at Western Carolina University this coming fall. Poulos will make it official this coming Wednesday, May 2, when he signs his letter of intent to be a walk on for head coach Mark Speir of the Catamounts. Poulos was an All-Northwestern

3A/4A Conference performer last fall for the Pioneers. He caught 34 passes for 544 yards and four touchdowns. He averaged 16-yards a catch. The Catamounts were 1-10 overall and 0-8 in the Southern Conference last season.
Teammate and fellow senior Kyle Chambers, who was WHS's leading rusher last fall, will officially announce on Wednesday, May 9, that he will attend Ferrum College, a Division III school in Ferrum, Va., to play football this fall. Chambers became WHS's first 1,000-yard rusher in five years. He ran for 1,402 yards and 17 touchdowns last season. Tight end Clint Trivette of the Pioneers has signed his National Letter of Intent with Brevard College, a Division II school in Brevard, N.C., and senior Cody McKinney will walk on at Appalachian State University. Alex Fox of the Pioneers will play in the East-West Senior All-
Star game in Greensboro, July 18.
Fox and McKinney were WHS's leading tacklers last season. Fox, a four-year varsity starter, had 112 tackles last season, including 37 solo stops. He also had ten tackles-for-loss and 2.5 quarterback sacks. He had three interceptions (and returned one that set up the game-winning touchdown in WHS's playoff opener against Alexander Central) and he forced three fumbles.
McKinney was fourth on the team with 96 stops, including 22 solo tackles. He also had 5.5 TFL and a quarterback sack.
