Princeton Senior High School senior Brett Carroll traded cats Thursday afternoon.

Carroll, who played slot-back and outside linebacker for the Tigers, signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his football career as a West Virginia Wesleyan College Bobcat.

After signing, Carroll said that he was unsure about what position he would playing for the Bobcats. He classified himself as an athlete that would play whatever position his new coaches asked him to.

“I just loved the environment, the campus,” Carroll said. “I liked Wesleyan because it wasn’t too far away from home.”

He added that he planned to major in Biology at Wesleyan. Carroll said he hoped use the opportunity to attend Wesleyan to become a doctor or a nurse.

Carroll’s mother, Angela Carroll-Underwood, said her son had been blessed. She felt that it was important for her son to attend a Christian college.

“That’s where God led him,” she said. “It makes it all the more better that it was a Christian college.”
