HIGHLAND SPRINGS, Va. -- After a successful career at Highland Springs and Clemson, K'Von Wallace is ready to show his skills at the next level.

Wallace was taken by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4th round with the 127th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

He becomes the second Highland Springs player to be selected in this year's draft and could be the fourth in the last two years to be on a NFL roster. And will be only four hours away from where he grew up in Richmond.

This past season at Clemson, Wallace was fourth on the team with 72 tackles along with two interceptions and two quarterback sacks. He was a third team All-ACC selection and made the conference's All-Academic team for the second time.

Wallace was tied for the most games played in Clemson history with 59 and was a major part in the team's two National Championship wins along with four ACC Championships.

During his senior season at Highland Springs, Wallace was first team All-State as a wide receiver and defensive back as the Springers won their first of four straight state championships.
