Mason Wants To Build Program

Meet Aaron Mason. A spectacular athlete out of Lexington, Kentucky, Mason will join Wake Forest's football program next season. The lightening fast athlete talked with DeaconSports this past week about what he likes about Wake Forest as well as his future at Wake Forest.

Aaron Mason is one of the quickest athletes in the state of Kentucky this season. He is also one of Wake Forest's top commits for 2003.

"Yeah, I've committed to Wake," Mason said. We asked the wide receiver, running back, defensive back, and safety to elaborate on his thoughts on Wake Forest. "I really liked their small campus and small student population," Mason said. "I like the teacher-student ration and the classrooms too. I could get a lot of attention from my teachers. I not going to be just another face in the classroom at Wake Forest."

While Cincinnati, Indiana, and Vanderbilt all offered scholarships and Northwestern showed heavy interest, Wake Forest just had too many positives to pass up.

Mason also fell in love with the coaches at Wake Forest "I went down for the camp and they know what they are talking about of course," Mason said. "I love the coaches. And Wake Forest hadn't had a very good team in the past but they seemed to be turning around the program I wanted to be a part of an upcoming program instead of an already established program."

Mason also told DeaconSports that he has been four different positions this season. "I've been playing wide receiver, running back, defensive back, and free safety," Mason said. At Wake, however, he will be lining up as a receiver for the most part. "Basically what [the Wake coaches] told me is that I'd be like a half-receiver half-running back type thing. I'd be doing what Fabian Davis does now."
