Seven athletes announce college commitments
Seven seniors announced college commitments today:
In soccer, Haydon Korfhage signed to continue his academic and athletic career at Centre College. Haydon was the number one goalkeeper throughout the 2018 Tiger soccer championship season, and helped anchor a defense that was responsible for 12 shutouts this year, 4 of those were clean sheets. At the Notre Dame Camp, he was named the All-Star Goalkeeper. He was one of four St. X soccer players to be named to the Courier-Journal Metro Louisville All-Area team, and was selected as Honorable Mention All-State.
Jack Albers will play football at the University of Dayton. After starting several games in 2017, he was the Tiger starting quarterback for 14 games in his senior season. He played the final 5 games of the season with a broken finger on his throwing hand while helping lead the team to the State Championship game. Jack was a committed team leader throughout his football career both on and off of the field as demonstrated in his daily preparation, film study, and hard work throughout the off season. This season Jack accounted for 30 total touchdowns, and amassed over 2,500 total yards passing and rushing and earned 1st Team All-District honors.
Will Crum signed as a preferred walk-on a receiver at the University of Kentucky. The Tiger football team's leading receiver in 2018, he finished his senior season with exactly 800 yards on 37 catches, resulting in 6 touchdowns. Proving that he could make the big catches in the big games, Will had 5 receptions for more than 100 yards and a touchdown in the KHSAA State Championship game.
Cameron Garrett will play football at Murray State University. During his time at St. X, he played in varsity games in his sophomore, junior, and senior years, and in 2018 he was the only Tiger player to start games on both sides of the ball. Cameron showed he was a true team player by switching from his starting defensive position to offense half way through the year when injuries created a need at receiver. In his first game he created an immediate impact with four receptions. Cameron's impact was also demonstrated as a key member of the Tiger Special Teams Unit where his speed, athleticism, and effort made him a great all-around player.
Clayton Six signed as a preferred walk-on to play offensive line next year at the University of Louisville. During his career at St. X he has earned meaningful playing time for three seasons on the Tiger Varsity football team, and started every game in 2018 at center when he earned 1st Team All-District recognition. His versatility has been evident of the last three years as he's worked, and played, multiple positions on the line. Clayton's size, strength, and speed have allowed him to be a great asset to the team, and his understanding of the game, attention to detail, and focus on technique have really taken him to the next level.
Wyatt Smock will play football at Vanderbilt University. As a senior offensive guard he earned First Team All-District, All-Region, and All-State honors for the Tigers after making his presence known as an outstanding lineman in his two previous seasons. His size and athleticism make him an excellent offensive lineman, but his aggression and ability to play with low pads and explosive movement have made him an absolute force. Wyatt has demonstrated both his physical and leadership abilities throughout his career and has used them to help elevate the level of play of the offensive line, the offense in general, and the team as a whole.
Andrew Uhls will play football at the University of Dayton. During his high school career he was a constant disruptive force on the defensive line. Despite opponents consistently trying to run away from him, Andrew was still able to finish second on the team in tackles. His athleticism, high motor, and outstanding play earned him a place on All District 1st Team. Andrew was also able to put points on the board for the Tigers as he was one of the few defensive players on the team to score a touchdown. His daily work ethic and the quality of his character made him one of the leader of the Tiger defense.
