2 Clover High School athletes sign with colleges

February 6, 2014 

— National Signing Day 2014 was held Feb. 5 and Clover High School had two senior students sign letters of intent to play on a college level following graduation.

Clover Athletic Director Carroll Hester said “both students are an example for everyone at CHS.”

Randall Scott Jackson has committed to play football for Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C. He is the son of Barbara McMackin and Randy Jackson of Clover.

Jackson plans to major in exercise science to become a personal trainer or college strengthening and conditioning coach. A star quarterback at CHS, he will make a change in position by playing slot receiver for Guilford. Guilford finished second in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference this year with a record of 6-4. Jackson’s favorite classes included weight training and the Teacher Cadet program.

CHS Coach Chad Smith and assistant coach Tony Cook joined him for the signing, as well as friends and family.

Emily Sparrow sines on the track and academically. The daughter of Ruth and Steven Sparrow of Clover, she is a twin to brother Steven. She signed to run cross country and track at Winthrop University.

Sparrow dominated her competitors this season despite only having been a runner for two years. She plans to major in computer science.

She was joined by her cross country coaches Bailey Jackson and Nancy Hester at the signing.
