Will Shipley (W)
Weddington's Shipley will graduate early and head to Clemson
Weddington senior running back and the 2019 UCHSF Player of the Year Will Shipley, who helped lead the Warriors to back-to-back state championships in 2018 and 2019, will graduate early and enroll at Clemson on January 3. Shipley joined Waddington’s varsity team in 2017 as a freshman. In Shipley’s first year he ran for 690 yards and five touchdowns on 109 carries, while also catching 19 passes for 423 yards and another eight scores. Shipley’s junior year was his
best season yet and one of the best seasons by any player in county history in 2019. While helping the Warriors go undefeated and earn their second-straight state championship, Shipley ran for over 2,000 yards, caught 34 passes for 582 yards and scored a county-record 42 total touchdowns.
Shipley leaves Union Co. as the 2nd all-time in career TDs with 80 behind Forest Hills' Juanne Blount and 7th all-time in rushing yards with 4173. Had Shipley stayed for his senior year he more than likey would set the career TDs scored record and would of become one of only 2 other Union Co. players to eclipse 5000 career rushing yards.
GOOD LUCK WILL....CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH YOU AT CLEMSON!
