Johnstown-Monroe High School senior Riley Cannon verbally committed Wednesday to play football at Air Force.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder played quarterback last season, but the Falcons are interested in Cannon as a tight end, a position he played as a junior.

"I was pretty excited about it," Cannon said.

"It was too good of an offer to pass up."

Cannon will receive a full scholarship.

As a junior, he caught two passes for 32 yards for the Johnnies.

"They were looking for someone who was pretty good at basketball and someone who was athletic enough to get up and make catches," Johnstown coach Mike Carter said. "They were really impressed with his game tape."

Cannon was averaging 12.2 points and 9.2 rebounds on the basketball court before the Johnnies played East Knox last Friday.

He will sign the letter of intent at a ceremony Wednesday at the high school. The time of the signing had not been determined by last Friday.
