NAPPANEE – Nate Andrews was thrilled to utilize the supreme athletic talent of Bronson Yoder. Trevor Andrews will get him next.
NorthWood’s exciting and energetic senior Yoder signed his National Letter of Intent this week with the College of William and Mary, a Division 1 program in Williamsburg, Va. Nate Andrews, head coach for NorthWood, will pass along Yoder to his brother Trevor, who is the associate head coach for the Tribe.
Part of the Colonial Athletic Association, the Tribe were 4-6 this season which included a trip to Blacksburg to take on Virginia Tech. The 2019 calendar includes a visit to Charlottesville to face Virginia.
Yoder, who was recruited to William and Mary as defensive back, had one of the best seasons an Indiana high schooler had, being voted into the top four in the Mr. Football voting. Much of Yoder’s attention at the state level came on offense, racking up 2,876 yards of total offense and 28 touchdowns, 2,310 of those rushing, a figure that had him in the top ten in the state. As the option quarterback, Yoder also threw for 427 yards and six touchdowns, and even caught 12 passes for 139 yards and two scores.
Yoder had 29 solo and 62 total tackles on defense, picking off seven passes and returning two of them for a score.
NorthWood went 11-1 for the season, running the table at 7-0 in the Northern Lakes Conference before falling to Angola in the sectional championship game.
