Smithfield-Selma High kicker Jesse Vallecillo has signed to play football for St. Augustine University. In doing so he becomes the first member from his immediate family to go to college.
Jesse was selected as the All-County Special Teams Player of the Year and will now further his education and football career in Raleigh for an NCAA Division II football program.
Vallecillo was 8 of 8 on extra-point kicks and 3 of 5 on field-goal attempts including a long of 45-yards. Jesse was also the reason that SSS did not have a kick returned for a touchdown, said his Coach Mike Parrish.
Jesse currently has a 2.8 GPA as well scored a 27 on his ACT. He plans to study business administration at St. Augustine.
