St. Xavier held their winter signing day ceremony Wednesday at the school. Seven Tigers made their college choices official.

Soccer

Haydon Korfhage

Haydon is signing to continue his academic and athletic career at Centre College. Haydon was the number 1 goalkeeper throughout the 2018 Tiger soccer championship season, and helped anchor a defense that was responsible for 12 shutouts this year, 4 of those were Clean Sheets. At the Notre Dame Camp he was named the All-Star Goalkeeper.  Haydon was one of four St. X soccer players to be named to the Courier-Journal Metro Louisville All-Area team, and was selected as Honorable Mention All-State. 

Football

Jack Albers

Jack has signed to play Quarterback at the University of Dayton.  After starting several games in 2017, he was the Tiger starting quarterback for 14 games in his senior season.  He played the final 5 games of the season with a broken finger on his throwing hand while helping lead the team to the State Championship game.  Jack was a committed team leader throughout his football career both on and off of the field as demonstrated in his daily preparation, film study, and hard work throughout the off season.  This season Jack accounted for 30 total touchdowns, and amassed over 2500 total yards passing and rushing and earned 1st Team All-District honors. 

Will Crum

Will has signed as a preferred walk-on a receiver at the University of Kentucky.  The Tiger football team’s leading receiver in 2018, he finished his senior season with exactly 800 yards on 37 catches, resulting in 6 touchdowns.  Proving that he could make the big catches in the big games, Will had 5 receptions for more than 100 yds. and a Touchdown in the State Championship game – many of those on throws he had to compete and fight to make the catch.  

Cameron Garrett

Cameron is signing to play Wide Receiver at Murray State University.  During his time at St. X he played in varsity games in his sophomore, junior, and senior years, and in 2018 he was the only Tiger player to start games on both sides of the ball.  Cameron showed he was a true team player by switching from his starting defensive position to Offense half way through the year when injuries created a need at receiver. 

Clayton Six

Clayton is committing as a preferred walk-on to be an offensive lineman next year at the University of Louisville.  During his career at St. X he has earned meaningful playing time for 3 seasons on the Tiger Varsity football team, and started every game in 2018 at Center when he earned 1st Team All-District recognition.  His versatility has been evident of the last 3 years as he’s worked, and played, multiple positions on the line. 

Wyatt Smock

Wyatt signed as an offensive lineman with Vanderbilt on the December signing date. As a senior offensive guard he earned First Team All-District, All-Region, and All-State honors for the Tigers after making his presence known as an outstanding lineman in his two previous seasons.  His size and athleticism make him an excellent Offensive lineman, but his aggression and ability to play with low pads and explosive movement have made him an absolute force. 

Andrew Uhls

Andrew is signing to continue his academic and athletic career at the University of Dayton. During his high school career he was a constant disruptive force on the defensive line.  Despite opponents consistently trying to run away from him, Andrew was still able to finish second on the team in tackles.  His athleticism, high motor, and outstanding play earned him a place on All District 1st Team.  Andrew was also able to put points on the board for the Tigers as he was one of the few defensive players on the team to score a touchdown.
