Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School held a signing ceremony for our spring student-athletes inside the Dolly Barranco Center (DBC) on the high school campus at 2:30 pm on Wednesday afternoon, May 15, 2013. The Knights celebrated the signing of Michael Dallas (Huntingdon), Skip Martin (North Alabama) and Jarrett Mason (Millsaps).
Skip Martin, Michael Dallas and Jarrett Mason commit to play at the college level on May 15.
Dallas, a two-time All-Metro selection for the Knights, has decided to play college basketball at Huntingdon College, choosing the Hawks over Spring Hill College. Dallas scored his 1,000th-career point earlier this season, and led the Knights in scoring average the past two seasons including averaging over 20 points per game for nearly all of the 2012-13 basketball season.
Martin, a state champion in track and field, has decided to run at the University of North Alabama, choosing the Lions over Spring Hill College. Martin won the indoor and outdoor 1600-meter championships during the 2012 track season and finished second in the event at this year’s outdoor event. He has also anchored three 4×800-meter championships (one indoor and two outdoor) for the Knights, while also earning All-State honors in cross country with his top 10 finish at the cross country championships this fall – helping the Knights win the Class 3A state title.
Mason will continue his running career at Millsaps College next fall after finishing second at the AHSAA cross country championships this fall and helping the Knights grab the Class 3A state title along the way. Mason finished in the top five two consecutive years for the Knights at the cross country championships, and has finished as a state medalist in many events in track and field during his prep career. He also ran on the last three 4×800-meter championship teams for the Knights (one indoor and two outdoor), including winning the third consecutive outdoor title this spring.
The trio join Katherine Terino (cross country and track at Montevallo), Conner Preston (football at UNC Pembroke) and Kenneth Dickerson (walking on in football at Tuskegee) who will continue their athletic careers in the fall at the college level.
