NINETY SIX — Ninety Six High School wide receiver Reid Slack contemplated walking on at either Furman University or Wofford.
He doesn't have to worry about that anymore after signing a national letter of intent with Newberry.
This past season, Slack caught 18 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns.
"I liked the small atmosphere there; I loved it when I visited there," said Slack, whose older brother, Ryne, plays in the Texas Rangers' farm system. "It's roughly around 1,000 students, and that really hit the nail on the head for me. Also, I like the turf field they have."
Since Slack is a receiver, of course, he considered the offense the Wolves run.
And, he loves it.
