Season Over For Bond, Focuses On Recruiting

ELON COLLEGE, N.C. --- Heading into Friday's 3A playoff match-up, Western Alamance knew the key to defeating Hertford County was containing "Mr. Everything" LaMarcus Bond.

Western Alamance did that holding a Bond led offense to just 183 yards resulting in a 31-13 victory and a berth in the second round of the NCHSAA 3A playoffs.

"It was frustrating," said LaMarcus Bond. "They were sending two [defenders] wherever I went – they were spying me the whole night. I'm used to it, but they're a good team."

Bond, a 5-foot-10 175-pound athlete with legit 4.4 speed, was held to just 41 yards on nine carries. His lone touchdown came on a 23-yard catch late in the first half. He also recorded three tackles and one pass deflection.

With his senior season coming to a close, Bond will finally shift his focus to his recruitment.

"I'm probably going to set up my official visits and play basketball," said Bond. "I haven't set anything up yet, but I want to visit N.C. State, Miami, UNC, Virginia Tech, and Virginia."

In addition to the five aforementioned schools, Bond is considering Auburn and Penn State. He lacks a leader, but hopes to make a decision sometime in December.

Bond ends his senior season as a dominating force on both sides of the ball as well as special teams. From his cornerback position, Bond picked off nine passes returning three for touchdowns. On offense, where he plays slotback, Bond scored 16 rushing and two receiving touchdowns. He adds five punt return touchdowns and two kick return scores.
