Shamar McCollom Signs With Wake Forest

Dillon High Wildcats’ Shamar McCollom signed to play football at the next level with Wake Forest on Wednesday, December 19, at Dillon High School.

Shamar’s parents, relatives, friends, football players, and the coaching staff were present to witness this special occasion as McCollom accomplished this part of his dream.
After playing football for only 4 years, he received the prestigious Lower State 3A Back of The Year Award.
Shamar was influenced in football by Jadeveon Clowny.
Although McCollom received other offers, he decided on Wake Forest.
After making some lifelong connections in football at Dillon High School, this humble football player should do well at Wake Forest as he possesses great football skills and has the right mindset for football. He should see time as a DE/OLB as he excelled at these positions at Dillon High.
He will major in business while at Wake Forest.
Shamar has committed himself to the game of football as he practices football as a hobby plus he also enjoys playing basketball and hunting when he is not on the football field.
McCollom is anxious to begin his football career at the next level.
McCollom had some impressive stats. In his senior year in 2018 Shemar was number one for the Dillon High Wildcats on defense with 98 tackles, 9 sacks, caused 2 fumbles, returned a fumble, and tipped a pass. In his junior year in 2017 he was second on defense with 116 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 2 fumble returns, 1 pass interception, and 2 tipped passes. In his sophomore year in 2016 he tied for fourth place on defense with 86 tackles, 5 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, and 2 tipped passes. (Stats provided by Lonnie Turner.)
Athletic Director and DHS Head Football Coach Jackie Hayes congratulated Shemar on his great career at Dillon High School. Hayes stated “I have never coached a player with the motor he has.” Not only do I look forward to following his career at Wake Forest, but also the entire football coaching is excited. Hayes further stated “McCollom has a great work ethic.” Hopefully we taught him what he needs to further his football career, not only in sports but more importantly in his education. Hayes also thanked Shemar’s parents for the role they have played in his life, both on the football field and in academics.
Shamar’s parents are Tameika Johnson and James Bethea.
Shamar’s family is extremely proud of him and his success in football. They look forward to his future accomplishments in football and academics at Wake Forest.
