Seniors Christopher Cannon, Jeromy Green and Jordan Green Make their final decision
Seniors Christopher Cannon, Jordan Green and Jeromy Green have all signed their names on the dotted lines to participate in cross country and track in college and are ready to start the next chapters in their lives.
Cannon will be attending, and running for, the United States Naval Academy in Maryland.
“I chose the Naval Academy, as they are one of the most prestigious and respected institutions of higher learning in the world. Graduating from a military academy will provide many opportunities for me later in my life. Also, I was recruited to run cross country and track and the thought of me running at a D1 level was very intriguing to me,” Cannon said.
The application for the U.S. Naval Academy took around five months altogether for Cannon to take the various tests and gain the appropriate nominations, which included one from a member of Congress.
Cannon is going into school as undecided in regard to his major, but is leaning toward engineering. For his job in the military after college, he is considering becoming a fighter jet pilot or a commander on a submarine.
Jordan Green will be continuing his academic and athletic career at Ohio Northern University.
“My running career at Wooster has helped me become more determined and dedicated to running. It has gifted me with great teammates and has increased my love for the sport,” Jordan said.
Jeromy will be attending Salisbury University next fall to be a student athlete.
He says he chose this school because of the location, people at the school and the amount of opportunities for him.
Green says that running at WHS taught him to be determined to succeed in both athletics and academics, while being disciplined. He is also very excited to meet new people and live in a new environment and will most likely be studying Health Sciences.
Doug Bennett has been all three boys coach for four years in both cross country and track at WHS.
“[They are] hard working kids and have a good focus on where they want to be in the next five years. They have taken the right steps towards being collegiate athletes,” said Bennett.
Christopher Cannon, Jordan Green and Jeromy Green have been leaders on the track and cross country teams and will be missed next fall.
