Game Changer: DeAngelo Collington, Erwin Basketball and Football

Updated: Wednesday, January 15 2014, 08:28 PM EST
DeAngelo Collington helped lead Erwin football team to the best regular season in school history.  Now, he's a key contributor to the Warriors undefeated basketball team.  But life was not always so smooth for this week's Game Changer. 

DeAngelo Collington's life has changed dramatically during his four years at Erwin High School.  His freshman year, he rarely showed up for class. 

DeAngelo says, "I probably came to school three days a week.  I was always late."

He was on a troubled path, until something changed.

DeAngelo says, "I just like to eat, so I like to cook!"

DeAngelo found a passion for cooking.  That led him to become part of the Career Academy at Erwin and part of the Biltmore Edge program, designed to give students the skills to be successful in work and in life.

DeAngelo says, "Career Academy helped me to get on task.  Not messing up and coming to school.  It motivated me to be in school every day.  Get good grades and be on time. 

Being part of the Biltmore Edge program has helped him become more disciplined.  Now, he's looking to go to college, something he did not think was possible before joining the program. 

'Without this program, do you think you'd be here today?' 

DeAngelo says, "No, Sir.  I'd probably be in trouble somewhere."

DeAngelo's goal is to go to college on a football scholarship, then study to become a chef and work at the Biltmore Estate.Game Changer: DeAngelo Collington, Erwin Basketball and Football
