Scott, Woods, Johnson, Kemble and Little are all going places

James Madison will soon be joining the Mid-American Conference, and Woods said he was excited to be on the ground floor as the Dukes build their program to a Division I level.

 “They’re on the rise right now,” he said. “ ... It’s a great opportunity to play for them.”

Woods ran for 1,001 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2013, ending his career with a third state title and by signing with James Madison.

“It’s like a movie,” he said.

Natalie Johnson is believed to be Havelock High’s first women’s Division I soccer player, something of which she was unaware on signing day Wednesday.

“I didn’t realize that, but it feels pretty good,” she said.

Johnson, who has been named to the all-state team the past two seasons, had 20 goals last year as a junior, leading the Rams to a 15-7 record.
