Pictured is Jacob Sharp, signing to play “sprint football” at Alderson Broaddus University. This is a football league that requires all participants to weigh 183 pounds or less. The only difference in this and regular football is the weight limit. Jacob was a starter for the Silver Knights the past three years. Coach Ryan Walton said he is happy to see Jacob get an opportunity to play at another level.

“I believe he will be a good fit for that type of football program, he’s a strong aggressive player who is only going to get better. We all wish him the best as he furthers his education with a chance to continue doing something he loves.”
