Phoebus star getting plenty of looks
Phoebus wide receiver Romon Deloatch caught six passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Phantoms' 36-17 victory over No. 1 Stone Bridge in Saturday's Virginia AAA Division 5 title game in Charlottesville.
Soon, the 6-foot-4, 235-pound junior with braided hair dyed red figures to be catching a few scholarship offers.
"A lot of schools are looking at me, but they can't really offer until I take my SATs," Deloatch said amid the on-field celebration after the Phantoms' third consecutive state title. "I've gotten a lot of letters, heard from Florida State, U-Va., and a lot of the ACC schools.
"I love Florida State, North Carolina and U-Va. Florida State has been on me hard. I've visited Florida State and Duke."
Deloatch also tagged along with teammate Daquan Romero on a trip to Chapel Hill, where the two returned with some eye patches bearing the North Carolina logo. Romero has since committed to Virginia, leaving Deloatch to wear the patches, like he did on Saturday.
"I'm superstitious, they make me feel good," Deloatch said. "I have a whole lot of them."
