WINDSOR—Windsor High School senior offensive lineman Justin Daniels has received a four-year partial academic scholarship from Randolph Macon College, where he will play football.

Randolph Macon is an NCCA Division III school in Ashland. The Yellow Jackets finished the 2010 season 7-3 overall and 3-3 in the conference.

The Jackets’ seven victories were the second most by the program since the 1998 season. Randolph Macon also secured its fourth straight winning season since 1995-98.

“It’s a great thing for the young man,” said Chuck Parrish, head football coach and athletic director for Windsor. “Randolph Macon is a good university, and he wanted to play college football.”

Daniels also was considered by Christopher Newport University, Virginia Tech and Old Dominion University.

He chose Randolph Macon because it’s a smaller school, said his mother, Denise.

“He wants to go into the ministry and loved the atmosphere and the coaches,” she said. “I’m really happy for him.”

Parrish called Daniels a great player with great attitude.

“He was a good player for us for four years and worked hard,” Parrish said.

A Tri-Rivers District school, Windsor finished 3-7 last season.

A four-year letterman at Windsor, Daniels also throws the shot put and discus for the Dukes’ track team.

He is also the son of Tim Daniels. The family lives in Colosse.
