GROVETOWN — Darius Watkins will forever be known as the Warriors’ first state champion.
Now, the track and field star holds another title: future Atlantic Coast Conference athlete.
In a room filled with friends and family, Watkins made his college choice official Wednesday, signing to run track at Virginia Tech.
“This is such a blessing,” Watkins said. “I’ve worked so hard these last 18 months and it feels great to have everything pay off.”
Watkins chose Virginia Tech, located in Blacksburg, Va., over Clemson, North Carolina, Louisville and Georgia.
