Worthington Kilbourne High School will retire the No. 76 jersey of former football player Matt Skura during a ceremony at the school from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 16. Later that evening, he will be recognized during halftime of the boys basketball team’s home game against Thomas Worthington.
Skura, a 2011 Kilbourne graduate, was a three-year letterwinner for the Wolves and, as a senior, was named the 13th-best center in the nation by ESPN.com.
Skura went on to play for Duke University from 2011-15, earning four letters. As a redshirt senior in 2015, he was a team captain, earned All-America honors by USA Today, Phil Steele and Sports Illustrated and made first-team All-ACC. He played in 50 games for the Blue Devils, including the final 40 as a starter.
In 2016, Skura was signed to the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad, and last September was elevated to the team’s 53-player roster. The 6-foot-3, 313-pound guard/center started 12 games for the Ravens in 2017.
Skura is married to fellow Kilbourne graduate Emma Ellis Skura, and the couple are expecting their first child.
