Off to Mount Union

Steubenville Catholic Central senior Zach Herrington, flanked by his parents Rob and Lainie Herrington, will continue his academic and athletic careers at the University of Mount Union. He will major in biology, where he hopes to pursue a career in physical therapy, and will be a member of the nationall-ranked football team. Herrington was a three-year letterman for coach Steve Daley’s Crusaders and set several school receiving records this past season. He finished the season with 52 receptions for 836 yards and 11 touchdown catches, good enough for first in Ohio Division VI in receptions and touchdowns, and third in yardage. Post season honors included first team wide receiver for the Quad County Coaches Association, Ohio Valley Athletic Conference, and Eastern District, as well as Special Mention All Ohio. He will play later this year in the Quad County and OVAC All-Star games. The Raiders, under head coach Larry Kehres, have won 11 Division III national championships since 1993, and will defend their latest championship in the fall. Also on hand for the signing were, from left, brother Lucas Herrington, Catholic Central Principal Rich Wilinski, Daley and assistant football coach Joe Colabella.
