Trowell, headed to N.C. State, is all-state
Southern wide receiver Maurice Trowell is the only player from Durham, Orange, Chatham and Granville counties to earn a spot on the Associated Press all-state football team.
Trowell caught eight passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns in Southern’s 38-31 win over Crest (Shelby) in the 3-AA championship.
That win at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem on Dec. 20 was Southern’s first state championship in football.
Trowell (5-11, 170) is headed to N.C. State.
