Wakefield duo boasts DI talent

Posted July 30, 2012

— While most high school teams would love to have one division-one prospect, Wakefield has two on the same side of the ball.

Quarterback Connor Mitch threw 48 touchdown passes last season, half of those with Jordan Fieulleteau on the receiving end.

"We've been really good friends for a long time and we've played in this offense now for our third year and we're really familiar with the offense," said Fieulleteau.

"He's a good receiver, obviously that's something you want in high school. There's chemistry, we've been playing together since eighth grade," said Mitch.

Both have already made commitments for next season, and they’re choosing spirited head coaches. Mitch heads for South Carolina, and the always outspoken Steve Spurrier.

"He's very interesting, but it's in a good way. He's energetic around the players, they feed off of it and it's all positive energy around there," said Mitch.

And Fieulleteau’s heading for North Carolina, committing to the Tar Heels’ intense new coach Larry Fedora.

"He was getting on a plane, so he had only five or ten minutes to talk to me when I committed," recalled Fieulleteau. "So when I called him, he was screaming on the plane, he was telling the flight attendant and yelling at them."

And with Mitch and Fieulleteau both heading for schools that call themselves 'Carolina', that leads to some interesting chatter on the sidelines.

"Yeah we argue and we go back and forth and I just tell him UNC is a basketball school," said Mitch.

"I just say this is the real Carolina," said Fieulleteau. "We have arguments, it's just fun."

If that wasn't enough, Mitch and Fieulleteau will face each other in their first collegiate game, when North and South Carolina open up against each other in 2013.
