ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After a visit to Georgia Tech over the weekend Deerfield-Windsor football standout Tony Zenon has accepted a scholarship offer with the Yellow Jackets.
"I've been wanting to go to Tech since the beginning of my senior season and the thing that I like about Tech is I want to major in engineering and architecture and they're like top ten in the country and they also run the offense that we run at school and so I thought that's a perfect fit for me" said Zenon.
Zenon also had offers from Georgia Southern, Marshall and Chattanooga.
Zenon has plenty of skeptics coming from an independent school but he's ready to prove them wrong.
"I think I can compete anywhere with my ability and you know I did my thing at the all star games and I played in the Georgia Florida all star game which is mostly public schools and at practice those guys were surprised and they were amazed by what I could do but I'm not bragging or anything but I'm just saying."
"See that's the good thing about it because coming from a smaller school a lot of people won't expect me to do much but we'll see."
Zenon finished his career at Deerfield-Windsor with the most rushing yards in school history. He helped the Knights win a state championship in 2008.
