The TD maker

Columbus Walnut Ridge wide receiver Ernie Wheelwright has some strange stats.  He doesn't have a whole lot of catches, but he is making those catches count.  Just call him the touchdown maker.

"I have twelve touchdowns; nine on catches, three on punt returns," he said.  "I have fourteen catches total. My longest was a ninety-three-yarder."

Ernie is still showing interest in Ohio State and will be one of the recruits checking out the game this weekend.

"I have been going to Ohio State games," he said. "I will be there for the Penn State game."

Ernie is still in the process of deciding, but one parent has chosen a favorite...

"Mom likes Indiana," he said. "Dad doesn't care."

Ernie would like to check out Indiana and was going to last weekend, but it didn't work out.

"I was going to go to Indiana for the Iowa game, but that is homecoming week-end for us," he said.

Ernie is still working hard on his grades and has a big day coming up in that department.

"I take the ACT on October 23rd," he said. "I am working with an ACT tutor now."

Wherever he goes, he knows what he wants his major to be.

"I want to major in business," he said.
