This is the first Wednesday in February, also known in college sports as National Signing Day. This is the first day a high school senior can sign a binding national letter of intent for college sports and Jared Barber faxed his own LOI (letter of intent) in to West Virginia this morning!
People in Davie County have known for quite a while that Jared Barber, the six foot, 220 lb inside linebacker would be playing for the Mountaineers. Barber was one of the leaders of the 2010 Davie County War Eagles team that went to the state championship game for the first time in the 58 year history of high school football in Davie County.
