Squires Mulling His Decision
New Bern’s Sha’mond Squires had a dream season and he capped it off with a state championship title roughly a week ago with a huge win over Charlotte Catholic.
On the season the 6-0, 210 pound linebacker tallied 189 tackles, six sacks an interception and five forced fumbles. In the state championship game Squires had seven tackles and an interception en route to winning most outstanding defensive player honors.
Squires talked with Pack Pride about how it felt to end the season with a state title.
“It feels good to be state champs. It couldn’t be a better feeling than winning your last game and closing out your season with a perfect record, 16-0, the best record in school history. So we’re going to go down in the record books and I don’t mind that. It’s a good feeling.”
With his high school career over Squires will now turn his attention to which college he’ll attend. He has offers from Charleston Southern and UNC-Pembroke but is also considering walk-on opportunities from a couple of in-state rivals.
“I have preferred walk-on’s from NC State and Carolina. I was going to make my decision (last) Monday but I’m going to take my time and try to make that decision because I’m going to be an early graduate.”
So when could a decision be forthcoming?
“I’m not sure. I’m just going to take my time and me and my mom are going to go over everything and make sure I make the right decision on where I want to spend my next four years. I’m not leaning to any particular school right now.”
