Big Week For Wake Forest
First it was All-Met defensive back Michael Campanaro pledging to the Demon Deacons. Now, colleague Paul Tenorio reports, Stone Bridge junior defensive tackle Zach Thompson has committed to play for Wake Forest, according to an email from Stone Bridge Coach (and Zach's dad) Mickey Thompson.
Zach Thompson, a 6-5, 250-pound defensive tackle, was one of the leaders on a Stone Bridge defense that pitched a shutout in the Virginia AAA Division 5 championship game to lead the No. 6 Bulldogs to its first championship.
Thompson had received offers from seven schools -- West Virginia, Virginia, N.C. State, Maryland, Syracuse, Boston College and Wake Forest -- but chose the Deamon Deacons yesterday.
Zach will join teammate Mike Olson, who committed to Wake Forest earlier this month. Two other Stone Bridge juniors have also committed to ACC schools: Offensive lineman David Wang will play for Virginia Tech and defensive end Brian Slay is headed to N.C. State.
