An already promising 2018 for Wyoming Area football got another boost this week when Sammy Solomon, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound, sophomore, all-star defensive end, transferred to the school from Wyoming Valley West.
A school source confirmed the transfer, which Solomon announced on his Instagram account.
“I will continue my journey on and off the field at Wyoming Area High School,” was the conclusion to an Instagram post in which Solomon said good-bye to and thanked his coaches and teammates at Wyoming Valley West.
Solomon, who also started on the basketball team for the Spartans, made a team-high 17 tackles for losses in 2017 on Wyoming Valley West’s District 2 Class 5A championship team that advanced into the state tournament. He was in on 50 total tackles as a freshman and 97 as a sophomore.
Wyoming Area already had a strong sophomore class, which collectively saw significant action during the 2017 season. Adding to the reasons for hope in the near future for the Warriors is the team’s move from Class 4A to 3A as part of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association’s reclassification to adjust for changing enrollment, every two seasons.
