Leesville Road wide receiver and defensive back Cameron Todd will leave Sunday for Fort Dodge, Iowa, where he will play college football at Iowa Central Community College.

David Green, Leesville Road's head football coach, informed HighSchoolOT.com of Todd's move on Friday afternoon.

Last season for the Pride, Todd caught 27 passes for 453 yards and three touchdowns. On defense, Todd recorded 66 total tackles and two sacks. He also had two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Leesville Road was 10-3 overall last season and advanced to the second round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association's 4-AA state playoffs where they lost to South View.

Green said Iowa Central Community College has been on of the top ten junior colleges over the last four years.

Creecy tells Pack fans what to expect from him


Aug 4, 2009

HighSchoolOT.com had area high school football coaches and players over to WRAL-TV studios in Raleigh last Friday, directly across the street from where Southern Durham wide receiver Tony Creecy will be going to school next fall.

Creecy has verbally committed to play for N.C. State, and during the interview session of the season kick-off Friday, he addressed N.C. State fans to tell him what they can expect from him.

As a junior last season, Creecy caught 48 passes for 862 yards and five touchdowns. He also ran the ball 31 times for 231 yards and three touchdowns. His performance earned him all-conference honors in the PAC 6.

In another portion of the interview, Creecy compared Southern Durham quarterback Alan Lea to current N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson - a player Creecy may have the opportunity to play with in the future.

Log back on to HighSchoolOT.com over the next few days to catch the complete interview with Creecy.

Wake Forest bringing in recruits


Aug 4, 2009

Maybe Wake Forest was trying to get the bulk of its recruiting done before the start of preseason practice.

Or perhaps a lot of high school seniors wanted to decide on their college of choice before they kicked off the 2009 season.

Whatever the reason, the Demon Deacons have put together one of the most significant recruiting surges since Jim Grobe came aboard as head coach over the past month.

Wake Forest has added nine players to its recruiting Class of 2010 since July 22, including two of the top prospects from the Raleigh area.

The Deacons scored a major in-state coup by securing an oral commitment from wide receiver Matt James of Raleigh's Sanderson High over the weekend.

James is an impressive athlete who stands 6-foot-6, weighs in at 196 pounds and has 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash. He chose Wake over offers from Central Florida, East Carolina, Kent State, Maryland, Syracuse and West Virginia among others.

Summers liked family atmosphere at Wake Forest

Broughton OL Colin Summers

Broughton OL Colin Summers

RALEIGH — Broughton offensive lineman Colin Summers committed to Wake Forest on Monday afternoon, becoming the second Raleigh commitment for the Demon Deacons in the last three days.

“[Wake Forest has] always been on my list from the very start. I really like the small school atmosphere while getting a chance to play BCS football,” Summers said Monday evening.

The 6-foot-4, 310-pound lineman picked Wake Forest over Duke, East Carolina and Elon, and the atmosphere had a big impact on his decision.

“The academics can't be beat and I really like the coaches a lot and they treat their players like family,” Summers said. “It’s just a perfect place for me.”

Summers has already met head coach Jim Grobe, and he spoke highly of his future coach.

“Well, people think very highly of him, and I immediately could see why,” said Summers. “He’s a very kind,
