Sumpter to Dickinson

Defensive lineman chooses Pennsylvania school.
Defensive lineman James Sumpter '13 will continue his football career at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, a Division III school in the Centennial Conference.

Sumpter had 17 tackles in his senior season, going from a spot player as a junior to a starter as a senior on a talented line that included Virginia signee Jack English '13 and heavily recruited sophomore Ricky DeBerry '15.

"They were the most excited to have me," Sumpter said of the Red Devils coaching staff. "The financial aid aspect of it really worked out.

"I really became more of a man than when I came here," said Sumpter, who started at St. Chris in sixth grade. "If I could do it all over again I'd definitely choose St. Chris."
