Wingate ready to take full advantage of second chance
CAMDENS SAVONN WINGATE is flanked by his parents, Ernest and Harriett Wingate, after signing a football letter-of-intent with North Carolina Tech Preparatory Christian Academy. Behind him are CHS head football coach Jimmy Neal (left) and Principal Dan Matthews.
This was not how a high school sports career was supposed to end for SaVonn Wingate. Coming off of back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, the Camden High running back was primed to go out with a bang last fall in his senior campaign. Instead, a knee injury sustained in last May’s spring scrimmage reduced the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder to being a sideline helper on Friday nights.
