ORANGE CITY - Andrew Volkert has signed a letter of intent to continue his football career at Northwestern College next year.

Volkert is a 6'1", 160-pound quarterback and defensive back who played four years for River Valley High School. He earned first team all-district honors as a defensive back after posting 39 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery. Volkert also gained nearly 450 yards of total offense his senior year.

A member of the National Honor Society, Volkert plans to major in athletic training at Northwestern. He is the son of Brian and Trudie Volkert of Correctionville.
