Plaquemine High quarterback D’Morea Wicks committed to Air Force during a Saturday visit to the school, PHS coach Paul Distefano said.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Wicks is scheduled to play running back for the Falcons. Wicks accounted for 2,353 total yards while leading the Green Devils to the Class 4A semifinals last fall.
He tallied 1,260 rushing yards, 1,093 passing yards and had a hand in 27 TDs to help Class 4A Plaquemine to its first semifinal appearance in decades. He was the District 6-4A Offensive MVP and was an All-Metro selection.
Another local 4A player, St. Michael the Archangel linebacker AJ Fletcher, received a scholarship offer from Northwestern Oklahoma State on Friday during an official visit to the school.
Fletcher played linebacker and kicker for the Warriors. He earned Class 4A all-state honors as a kicker and was an All-Metro pick as a linebacker.
