Dual-sport Roman Catholic (Philadelphia, PA) star Charron Fisher still has not decided whether we wants to play football or basketball in college. The 6-3, 236 pound Fisher plays outside linebacker/defensive end in football and is a small forward in basketball.

He has scheduled official visits to James Madison (this weekend), Niagara, and UNC-Greensboro. All of these schools have offered him basketball scholarships.

If he decides to play football, there is only one school in the running.

“If I decide to play football, then Virginia is the only school that I would go to,” said Fisher. “I’m probably going to take an official visit there, and we are trying to set one up. I talk to Coach [Bob] Price a lot.”

Of the two sports, Fisher is leaning towards the hard court. He has not made a final decision.

“I’m probably leaning towards basketball right now,” said Fisher, who played well throughout the summer on the AAU basketball circuit. “I haven’t decided yet. Virginia has talked to me about signing a football scholarship and walking on to the basketball team, but I know that would be hard and I’m not sure I could do that.”

UVA is the school of choice if he chooses football. He’s leaning towards basketball right now, but an official visit to UVA may change his mind.


On the Gridiron

Fisher has led a fierce Roman Catholic defense that has not allowed more than 80 yards total offense in each of the first three games. On offense, he has scored four touchdowns and plays wide receiver and tight end.

The team is 3-0 heading into a major contest versus St Joseph’s Prep (featuring LB Brian Tracz). St. Joseph’s defeated Roman Catholic for the state title last season.
