Clancy heads for Shepherd

March 17, 2006|By RICH SCHERR | RICH SCHERR,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Westminster quarterback Kevin Clancy, The Sun's All-Metro Offensive Player of the Year, signed a letter of intent yesterday to attend Division II Shepherd University in West Virginia. He will be joined there by teammate Ryan Payne, a first-team All-Carroll County wide receiver, who also signed with the Rams.

Clancy completed 187 of 344 passes for 3,335 yards and 38 touchdowns, and rushed for another 15 scores. He helped the Owls (12-2) average 40 points during an eight-game winning streak and advance to the Class 3A state championship game.

He also threw for more than 6,000 yards in his high school career - nearly 2,000 more than any other Carroll County quarterback - but was passed up by some larger schools.

Much like the Owls, the Rams last season featured a high-powered offense, averaging 35 points and 347 yards of offense in finishing their regular season unbeaten for the first time since 1955. Shepherd's six quarterbacks included five freshmen or redshirt freshmen.
