E.C. Glass senior DreSean Kendrick made his college commitment on Super Bowl Sunday, choosing William & Mary during a ceremony.

Kendrick, who was named The News & Advance’s All-Area offensive player of the year after garnering the top offensive honors from the Seminole District and Region 4D, chose the Tribe over offers from Richmond and Georgetown.

The 5-foot-9, 174-pound Kendrick was also a first-team Class 4 all-state quarterback. He finished his senior season with 3,365 total yards and 41 touchdowns, all while maintaining a 4.1 GPA in the classroom.

He will graduate with E.C. Glass records for rushing yards (4,581) and all-purpose yards (8,051), the latter of which belonged to his father, Andre. He accounted for 102 career touchdowns (64 rushing).

Green finished with 21 points on 8-of-9 shooting and pulled down six rebounds for the Flames (12-10, 5-4 ASUN Conference). McMillian had a career-high 17 points to go with six rebounds.

The Owls (9-11, 3-6) trailed 65-42 on Lytle’s jumper with 8:24 remaining and faced a 69-48 deficit with 5:57 left.
