Butler QB LeMay to graduate early, narrows college list to 10

Butler High junior quarterback Christian LeMay, the 2009 Observer co-offensive player of the year, will graduate in December and enroll in college, his father, Stacey told the Observer.


Stacey LeMay said his son's list of 10 potential college choices are: Florida, Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, Miami, Mississippi State, Florida State, Virginia Tech and North Carolina.

Stacey LeMay said his son planned to narrow his list to five schools by May and to three by July.

LeMay is generally considered one of the nation's top five players at his position. He was named MaxPreps' national junior of the year and the Gatorade N.C. player of the year.

At 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, LeMay threw for 3,296 yards and 44 touchdowns last season, leading Butler to a 15-0 season, a national ranking and the school's first state championship. He threw only two interceptions all season.

He takes extra classes, alot of athletes do this. Good luck to him wherever he goes. This is a man playing a kids game. seen him a few times and he is the real deal. Good Luck

A lot of the top football prospects try to graduate high school early in order to enroll in college and participate in spring practices. This is a huge advantage for a freshman looking to play their first year.

Points made about football players doing this so they can participate in college spring practice is valid and accurate and completely legitimate. Note: non athlete students also do this also to get a jump on college. I would much rather see athletes do this than be lackadaisical about attending the minimum classes!

I would love to see LeMay become a Tar Heel but good luck to the young man wherever he decides to go!

When Devonte Holloman wanted to graduate early was he not informed that he could not do that in CMS. It was my understanding that was a contributing factor in his move to Rock Hill.

i think since Holloman left CMS they have changed the number of credits you need, so i think thats how Lemay can leave early

Sounds like Lemay is being treated like a pro. Visits colleges as a soph, goes to all the camps, etc, etc. His dad should keep in mind he is one bad hit from never playing football again. Let him be a kid for gosh sakes. P.S. Anyone heard if Newsome is leaving or will he be staying one more year?

CMS has changed the number of credits needed to graduate since Hollaman has left. Anybody that comes in as a 9th grader this year will be able to leave early from now on. And it became into effect with this junior class.

This is a great idea on the Lemay family's part! Hopefully he comes to Carolina! Be a Tar Heel!

Roll Tide! Send that kid to "T" town.

I hope that he picks Florida. Coach Meyer and Gator Nation would be a good fit for LeMay.
