Connor Mitch and Jordan Fieulleteau are teammates again – this time on a national level.
The former Wakefield quarterback and wide receiver were among 57 players nationwide named to the Parade Magazine’s All-America high school football team, which will be announced Thursday. Mitch and Fieulleteau earned honorable mention nods.
Mitch and Fieulleteau already are in college. Mitch is at South Carolina and Fieulleteau is at North Carolina, but the duo left an imprint on the state record books while leading Wakefield to an 11-2 record during their senior season.
When Mitch threw for a record nine touchdowns and 667 yards, Fieulleteau was at the receiving end of five of those scores, one shy of that state record.
Mitch passed for 4,701 yards and 63 touchdowns on the season, and Fieulleteau caught 108 passes for 1,649 yards and 24 touchdowns.
Two other North Carolina players, Northern Guilford running back T.J. Logan and Indian Trail Porter Ridge kicker Matt Wogan, also were on the list. Wogan was a first-team selection.
The list, compiled by Parade contributing editor Brian McLaughlin, will appear in the publication’s Sunday issue.
All-state teams, state player of the year honors and statistics were considered in selecting the players, along with game observations from McLaughlin, who covers college recruiting for The Sporting News.
There were 13 offensive and defensive players on the first team and 31 others named honorable mention.
