Park Vista’s Pat Thompson and Trey Valot, Royal Palm Beach’s Paul Brown commit to colleges 

By Jeff Greer

Park Vista seniors Pat Thompson and Trey Valot and Royal Palm Beach senior Paul Brown each committed to colleges.

Thompson will play at Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio, a Division III program. Webber International in Babson Park picked up Trey Valot’s commitment. And Royal Palm kicker Paul Brown will attend Methodist in Fayetteville, N.C.

Thompson took 60 carries for 394 and four touchdowns in 2010, and was the punishing fullback for Auburn signee Tre Mason, who ran for 1,643 yards and 24 touchdowns. Valot was a Palm Beach County All-Conference linebacker and played in the Palm Beach County/Treasure Coast All-Star game.

Brown is both a kicker and punter, and he’s the third Royal Palm Beach football senior to commit. Methodist is a Division III program.
