Another Commit

An anonymous commenter on the previous post informs me that Joe Stormont from Stillwater, Minnesota, (pictured above with his mom. He is #5, second from the right), will be a Columbia Lion next fall. Stormont was a safety/kicker for his high school team and the captain. Here is more info on young Joe from his team website:

"The Stillwater football team set numerous individual school records this season while earning their 19th trip to the state tournament, which is the most ever among large schools. The Ponies celebrated this and other achievements during their postseason awards banquet on Sunday evening at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Senior Joe Stormont, an all-state kicker and safety who set numerous several records this season, was named the Most Valuable Player for the Ponies, who finished 8-4 after getting knocked out of the state quarterfinals by Rosemount.

Stormont, who is tied for sixth on Stillwater's all-time list with nine career interceptions, was also selected the team's Most Valuable Defensive Player.

There were a total of 20 records broken or all-time lists joined by members of this year's senior class. Stormont was responsible for many as he ends his career as the most decorated kicker in team history. Stormont, who received Associated Press All-State honors as a kicker and honorable mention recognition as a defensive back, tied the record for kicking points in a game with 10 - which he achieved twice this season - and set records for most field goals in a game (3), season (15) and career (20). His 71 kicking points in a season and 122 in a career are also team records. As if that wasn't enough, Stormont also set the record for most consecutive extra-point kicks (45) and field goals (12). His 47-yard field against Woodbury is also a new team standard. Stormont also ranks ninth on the career scoring list with 142 points.

Many thanks to your anonymous tipster for the goods news about safety/kicker Joe Stormont commiting to Columbia. Also, congratulations and best wishes to Joe and his family on his joining the Lions.

I wonder if there are any other talented football players coming to Columbia next year from Minnesota. After all, Minnesota is Norries Wilson Country!
