West Henderson wanted to wait until March to formally recognize all its college-bound football players with a signing ceremony.
If this keeps up, there may not be a room big enough to hold them all.
Defensive back/wide receiver/punter Taylor Geyer has become the fifth Falcon to make his plans for the next level by committing to Emory & Henry (Va.).
Geyer is a 6-foot-4, 170-pound senior who made a team-high 15 receptions for 363 yards and four touchdowns in 2014. He punted 26 times for an average of 35.3 yards per pick.
Geyer and four other college recruits – linemen Brian Albea (Brevard College) and Zack Boyd (Mars Hill), defensive back/wide receiver Taylor Pope (Mars Hill) and linebacker/running back Alex Ball (Presbyterian) – helped the Falcons go 8-5 overall and 5-2 in the Western North Carolina Athletic Conference in 2014. West Henderson beat Kings Mountain, 41-27, on Nov. 14 for its first home state playoff win in 24 years.
Paul Whitaker was named the North Carolina coach of the year by USA Today High School Sports.
