Middle Creek Mustang kicker and punter Michael Rubino has received his first full scholarship offer to play football at the next level.

Appalachian State has offered the 6-foot-3 rising senior, Middle Creek Head Coach Mike Castellano said Wednesday.

In 2013, Rubino was an all-conference kicker and punter in the 4-A Southwest Wake Athletic Conference. He was also the conference's Special Teams Player of the Year. He also plays basketball at Middle Creek.

Rubino's foot helped the Mustangs to a 12-3 overall record last season and an undefeated 7-0 mark in the SWAC. The team fell to Wake Forest by a point in the 4-AA eastern regional final.

Rubino starts his senior season at Middle Creek Aug. 22 against rival Garner. The Mustangs will also be featured in a 6:15 p.m. game against Southern Durham during the HighSchoolOT.com Jamboree at Cardinal Gibbons on Aug. 16.
