Westerville Central High School's Miles Fisher will continue his football career at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Fisher also received interest from the U.S Military Academy at West Point, along with Ivy League schools Brown, Cornell, Harvard and Penn.
Fisher previously received a nomination letter from Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-Genoa Township) to attend West Point, but later decided on Air Force.
"I went out there for a game in October, and I just loved it," Fisher said. "It's the best academically and Division I football, which you can't get anywhere else. It was just a great opportunity for me that I couldn't pass up."
Last season, Fisher led Central in rushing with 537 yards and three touchdowns on 96 carries. Fisher, who was also a standout in the Warhawks' defensive backfield, was second-team all-OCC-Cardinal.
"Coach (John) Magistro and my athletic director, Mr. (Andy) Ey, also put in a good word for me, and helped me along with this process, so has my father (Guy Fisher)," Fisher said. "We've been going back and forth, emailing coaches and everything."
Fisher rushed for a team-high 537 yards and three touchdowns on 96 carries and was named second-team all-OCC. He said the Air Force coaches have told him he will play strong safety.
The Warhawks finished 2-8 overall and 2-5 in the OCC-Cardinal Division last season.
