A new journey begins for football commits

On Feb. 2, Amir Frye officially commits to Shepherd University. Frye is ready to take his skill to the next level and compete like never before.

As the WJ football season has ended, some seniors on the team will be continuing their football journey into college.
The first commit from the team was Will Gardner. Gardner played as a quarterback all four seasons and was the starting varsity quarterback the last two years. This year Gardner made the All-Moco Team which recognizes him as one of the best quarterbacks in the county. Gardner committed to Wesleyan University where he will be playing division three football.
“Wesleyan is also a great winning program with high level coaches and they compete for championships every year,” Gardner said.
At Wesleyan he is looking forward to improving his skills more but also being able to win championships at his time there. Being the quarterback on the team, also means Gardner had to lead the offense and to do that he needed to be a great leader. This is something Gardner will carry with him to college and become an even better leader.
Amir Frye is another player who recently commited. Frye, who was a star player on the football team throughout the years, played as a defensive end, linebacker, and a running back. In his final year on the team he also made the All-Moco team as a linebacker. He is going to continue his career at Shepherd University, a division two school. Frye had a big impact on the field.
“There’s not a team in MoCo that could say they found a way to stop Amir from upsetting their whole offense,” teammate Kenneth Dempster said.
Frye will be looking to make his impact on the field at Shepherd University where he can help better the defense.
The final commit from the team so far is Sean Flynn. He played on the offensive line and was an important player as he protected the quarterback from getting sacked. Flynn committed to Salisbury University and they are a division three team.
“I liked the campus and the coaches, but I especially liked the winning culture that the team had built over the past 20 years,” Flynn said.
With Salisbury having a great football program, Flynn will be able to take his skills to the next level and learn more throughout his years at the university.
These players have been given the opportunity to pursue their love for football through hard work and dedication to the game. Their high school career may be over but now they have another four years to see where they can go with football.
