Maddox A West All-Star

It was a big week for Za’haree Maddox. Not only was he named an East-West All-Star in football, he accepted a basketball scholarship to UNC-Asheville.

Maddox will be a receiver for the West in the all-star game in Greensboro on July 13. His teammates from the Central Piedmont Conference will be safety Tim Davis and cornerback Will Montgomery of East Forsyth, cornerback Zion Dixon of Glenn, linebacker Evan Rhodes of Reynolds and defensive tackle David Eldridge of West Forsyth.

Maddox is one of the top receivers in Davie history. In the career record book, he’s third in catches (149), fifth in TD receptions (17) and seven in receiving yards (1,500).

He announced his commitment to UNC-Asheville on Twitter on May 21.

New Boys Soccer Coach

Davie has a new varsity boys soccer coach. Marco Rebollar will take over this summer in preparation for the fall season. He recently became the 15th coach in the program’s 35-year history, and he replaced Jason Clark, who lasted one season.

Rebollar will begin building from the ground up. Last year the War Eagles limped to 2-16-1, and their record is 13-141-3 over the past eight years. In fact, there have only been two winning seasons in program history: 1996 under coach Pete Gustafson and 2011 under Lance Everette.
