WRAL Freshmen Features & HS Football

Jun 14, 2007

All high school sports fans know about the big names - the ones who are going to college to play sports - but what about the rising freshmen?

Well, we want to get to know the Class of 2011, but we can't do it without your help. Coaches, players, and fans, if you know of a rising freshman who has the potential to be an exceptional athlete in high school, send me an email with as much information as possible.
