Javon Yarbrough became the latest Ascension Catholic athlete to sign with a college as he inked his letters of intent to play football at Birmingham-Southern College last week.

Yarbrough has been a two-year starter for the Bulldogs.

In his junior season, he played running back and safety, but this past season, he transition to linebacker on defense, and he became the team’s starting quarterback.

Yarbrough was a second-team all-district selection on defense as he helped lead the Bulldogs to a 6-4 season and trip to the second round of the playoffs.
