Five Ballou football players expected to sign

By Alan Goldenbach

Just because Ballou had to forfeit its spot in last season's Turkey Bowl because of an ineligible player doesn't mean the Knights didn't have plenty of talented players. In fact, one third of the 15 seniors on their team last fall expect to be on college rosters next season, according to Ballou assistant Todd Amis.

Amis said that when seniors are first allowed to sign their letters-of-intent next Wednesday, All-Met defensive tackle Lamonte Clark will follow through on his verbal commitment to Kansas State. Defensive back Terry Bennett, one of the top students in the Ballou senior class, will sign with Bucknell.

Meantime, second team All-Met offensive tackle Jamar Lewter will sign with Marshall. He had pledged to North Carolina last summer, but will not reach NCAA initial eligibility standards. Marshall, is one of the few Division I-A schools that accepts players who have satisfied some eligibility requirements, commonly known as partial qualifiers.

Second-team All-Met quarterback Delonte Edwards and running back Darren Holbrook, an honorable mention All-Met, will likely land at Division II schools, with Shepherd (W .Va.) and Glenville State (W. Va.) the leading candidates.
