With one of the most exciting fall football seasons behind them, which took the program just one game away from a state appearance, Newsome High School senior players have a chance to give thought to their academic and athletic future.
College offers have reached two Newsome standouts, including Wolves senior quarterback Will Worth and senior running back Clint Carnell.
Worth’s first college offer came from the Naval Academy, something that the star player has been hoping to receive for some time, considering the senior is the son of a retired Navy helicopter pilot.
A four-year starter at Newsome and as a freshman linebacker turned quarterback, Worth surpassed 5,400 yards of offense, nearly 60 touchdowns and 300 tackles within his four years with the Wolves.
Considered by many as the best senior QB of the 2012-2013 fall season, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound QB, passed for 1,051 yards and 11 touchdowns, rushing for 1,537.
“It was 15 and 9 all year,’ said Newsome head coach, Kenneth Hiscock, referring to his team’s dynamic duo Worth and Carnell.
Worth’s offer comes only a day after Wolves senior Clint Carnell received his offer from the NAIA’s Georgetown College (Ky.).
Working well and connecting with Worth game after game, Carnell rushed for 871 yards and 12 touchdowns during the season including his game high 109 yards during the 21-14 upset win over then-unbeaten Durant in a region semifinal.
In his three-year varsity career, Carnell amassed more than 2,000 yards of total offense, including 1,802 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns.
