The 2013 Navy football signing class is full of players who can help Navy continue its service…
Chris High talks Navy
"I committed to Coach Yokitis around December 8th," stated Christopher High. "I liked that [Navy] runs the ball a lot. It a prestigious school. If you go there, you know all of the goals you have for yourself can be reached. It's going to provide me with the chance to see the world and all that. I'm not sure yet about military life, but I think I'll adapt well and grow into it."
High selected Navy over offers from Missouri State, Morgan State, and Central Oklahoma. Although he started slow in his first two games this year, High ignited the fire in game three and finished with nine straight 100 yard games with three of the games going for 200-plus.
"It was a great senior season," High said. "I had 132 carries for over 1700 yards and 15 touchdowns. I was named MVP of the 4A classification and first team All-State at running back. This was really my first year at running back. Last year I was a fullback and outside linebacker. As my junior season went on I took on a more active role in the offense then took over as the starter this year. My speed improved the most throughout the year and also my vision."
The Navy staff likes High, 6-foot, 185-pounds at running back, but he was very effective playing both ways this season when called upon at linebacker. High made 75 tackles, eight sacks, five quarterback hurries, five pass breakups, and two forced fumbles in addition to his work at running back.
While he has not yet made an official visit yet to Annapolis, he said he is in the process of setting one up for the month of January. High noted he has several family member with military experience including his grandmother in the U.S. Marine Corps. He said he will "most likely" begin at NAPS next summer after graduation.
