Wentzville School District Seniors Sign National Letters of Intent

Timberland's John Hummel will be playing football for Princeton; D.J. Hickey will play baseball for Jefferson College.

John Hummel

Timberland High School senior John Hummel has committed to play Ivy League football for the Tigers of Princeton University in Princeton, NJ. With his mother Kelly and father John by his side, Hummel signed his National Letter of Intent today at Timberland High School. “It’s the number one school in the country, and my parents have always taught me that education comes first before athletics,” said the tight end/defensive end. “With the opportunity to play Division I football combined with the best education available in the country, we decided that it was the way to go.”

Hummel is a true student-athlete, and maintains a 4.0 GPA and has scored a 30 on the ACT. He is the President of Student Council, and a member of the National Honor Society. As a junior he was named Timberland’s 2011 Defensive Lineman of the Year, and a Gateway Athletic Conference (GAC) All Conference Defensive End Honorable Mention. As a senior he was selected as Team Captain and GAC Academic All Conference, and received the GAC All Conference Sportsmanship Award and the Timberland Team Leader Award. Hummel plans on majoring in mechanical or aerospace engineering while at Princeton University

D.J. Hickey

Timberland High School senior D.J. Hickey has committed to play baseball for the Vikings of Jefferson College in Hillsboro, MO. With his mother LeAnn and father Patrick by his side, Hickey signed his National Letter of Intent today at Timberland High School. “It was the best fit academically and athletically,” said the left-handed pitcher. “They have a lot of players that go on to Division I programs and the pros, so they are very good at developing baseball players.” Last year as a junior, Hickey led the Wolves with five wins and 34 strikeouts while posting a 1.84 ERA, and was also a GAC All-Conference Honorable Mention. Hickey plans on studying secondary education while at Jefferson College.
