Curtis’ Dale still undecided

While many high school football players signed with colleges Wednesday, one local standout player is still waiting.

Hunter Dale, a standout defensive back at John Curtis didn’t sign.

Dale didn’t attend Wednesday’s signing ceremony at the school, and his high school coach said Dale is weighing his options.

“He is not sure what direction he wants to go, whether it’s football or baseball or a combination of both,” John Curtis coach J.T. Curtis said. “He has some opportunities to do that, and he’s waiting to see how things unfold after signing day. He felt like it was in his best interest to wait.”

Dale was a member of the The New Orleans Advocate’s All-Metro Team after his senior season when he recorded 53 tackles, three interceptions, and eight pass break-ups.

Dale took an official visit to Tulane and the Wave is one of the schools that will likely allow him the chance to play both sports.

“I’m hoping that in the next few days or so he will be able to make a decision about what he wants to do,” Curtis said. “It’s just a wait-and-see game right now. He loves playing both sports and he feels he has a future in both sports.”
