Derrick had an incredible senior year on the Chelan Goat Football Team and racked up huge numbers on both offense and defense.
Derrick is planning on walking-on and trying out for EasternWashingtonUniversity football this fall. While many feel he is too small for Division 1 ball, others admire his lateral quickness that allows him the ability to avoid tacklers.
Derrick was injured in the later part of this year's season and recently underwent surgery on his foot. Fortunately, the problem turned out to removing a bone fragment instead of requiring surgery on the foot.
GoLakeChelan's staff congratulates Derrick and his father, Darren, who has been selected as an assistant coach for the game.
