Both Elizabethton’s Carter Everett and Happy Valley’s Michael Harrah have chosen as to where they will compete in collegiate football.

At the beginning of January, Everett announced on his Twitter page that he had committed to Tusculum College.

In his Tweet, Everett thanked many for his high school football career which saw the senior record 6,888 passing yards and 83 touchdowns with just 11 interceptions. Everett completed 475 of 696 passes for a career 68 percent completion recorded.

“(I want to thank) Coach (Shawn) Witten, my high school coach, for always having my back and always making me be my best,” Everett wrote in his Tweet. “Ryan Witten has played a huge role in my football career—always there for me when I needed anything. Also, my teammates were a huge part in getting me here.”

Here recently, Harrah, placekicker and punter for Happy Valley, announced that he would be committing to Carson-Newman. During his time as a Warrior, Harrah played a big role for his team as he flipped the field with punts and hit clutch field goals to help his team win big games.

Harrah will be having his signing with Carson-Newman next Wednesday.

Johnson records 17 points for UVA-Wise

This past Saturday, former Happy Valley Lady Warrior Kalee Johnson recorded 17 points for the Lady Cavaliers.

Johnson’s performance, however, was overshadowed by a 73-67 loss to Concord University.

The 17 points were Johnson’s best of the season. She also had a season-best three 3-pointers during the game.

Since January 19, Johnson has had three-straight, double-digit games. On Jan. 19, Johnson had a game-high 16 points to lead UVA-Wise to an 81-61 win over Wheeling Jesuit. Johnson recorded 11 points during her team’s 71-59 win over West Virginia State on Jan. 23.

Johnson and Lady Cavaliers will be back at it this Saturday at Glenville State in West Virginia.

Jones records

double-double for Johnson University

Former Hampton standout Coby Jones picked up a double-double this past Monday as his team, the Johnson University Royals, dropped a close game with Hiwassee 99-95.

Jones recorded 14 points as he pulled down 11 rebounds.
