Albemarle High School senior Dominique Talley is headed across the country to continue his football career next season.
Talley said Monday night that he'll attend Monterey Peninsula College, a junior college in Monterey, California. Talley listed Ferrum, Bluefield, Shepherd, Averett, and Fairmont State as schools he had been considereing.
The Lobos went 4-6 in 2013.
In 2013, Talley helped AHS finish the regular season 6-4, and snap the program's 10-year playoff drought. The running back was an All-Jefferson District first-team selection after rushing for 862 yards and eight touchdowns on 185 carries, and adding 11 catches for 173 receiving yards.
Those final statistics include a 149-yard rushing performance and the go-ahead touchdown in the Patriots' upset of previously unbeaten Monticello, and a 269-yard, four-touchdown performance in Albemarle's last-second loss at home to Western Albemarle.
In February, Talley was a member of the World Team in the inaugural Texas vs. The World Football Classic, a recruiting showcase game in Duncanville, Texas.
