Stamper Concludes Senior Campaign

Deacon commitment John Stamper visited Wake Forest for their game against Virginia Tech this past weekend. Following his visit, Stamper spoke with DeaconSports about his visit, his senior season that came to a close this past Friday, and his future plans.

This past week, John Stamper and his West Forsyth teammates ran into a problem schools have run into week-in and week-out – the Independence High School offense. Stamper and his teammates gave up 45 points in a 45-28 loss to Charlotte Independence Friday night.

"I feel like the offense played good enough to win but our defense gave up too many points," Stamper said. "We fought the whole game and never gave up."

"I think I did alright," Stamper noted when asked about his play. "I did fine, but it was hard to compete with all their different weapons."

Saturday, Stamper's other team, Wake Forest, fell to Virginia Tech 27-6. Still, Stamper enjoyed his visit and the atmosphere at the game. "It was awesome," he said. "It was definitely the biggest crowd for a game I've been to. A night game, being on TV, and a bunch of commitments were there, it was great. I got to meet them all there. Skylar Jones, Tristan Dorty, the wide receiver from Florida Jordan Williams, Doug Weaver, the Michael Hoag kid, and Kyle [Jarrett] plus Josh Bush was there."

Stamper will also have the opportunity to meet several other top D-I prospects in a few weeks when he plays in the Shrine Bowl, an All-Star game matching the top players in North Carolina with South Carolina's best. "I've definitely got to keep working out for the Shrine Bowl in a few weeks," he said. "I'm staying in shape. I've got to be ready."
