A lot of ac­co­lades have been lauded upon Trevon Wof­ford dur­ing the 2017 sea­son, and for good rea­son.

The Re­gion 5-AAAA Of­fen­sive Player of the Year racked up thou­sands of yards both throw­ing and pass­ing dur­ing his ca­reer at Cedar­town High School, and did so this past year un­der cen­ter hav­ing learned a whole new of­fen­sive scheme.

He’ll in part be re­peat­ing that feat again this year as he made his de­ci­sion of­fi­cial late last week in a cer­e­mony at the high school to change his col­ors for the Univer­sity of Pikeville’s Or­ange and Black.

Wof­ford, who is grad­u­at­ing this spring, said that he’ll be play­ing un­der cen­ter for the Bears now that he’s of­fi­cially signed his in­tent to ac­cept their of­fer.

“I re­ally like the pro­gram they had to of­fer,” he said of his choice of the Ken­tucky school. “I’m just glad to have the op­por­tu­nity to play at the next level.”

He said that he was un­sure of what ex­actly he planned to study over the next four years, but he was sure that it would have some­thing to do with medicine.

“It means a lot to me to be able to con­tinue to do some­thing that I love to do,” Wof­ford said.

Wof­ford was joined for the cer­e­mony in the school’s li­brary on Feb. 16 by his fam­ily, with “all five of his moms,” but es­pe­cially his mother Kim­berly Poole sit­ting by his side, and team­mates and coaches look­ing as the Bull­dogs send a sec­ond player off to school fol­low­ing a big sea­son for Cedar­town’s foot­ball pro­gram.
