ACHS Receives Best High School Award by US News
US News & World Report has nationally recognized Amite County High School with the Bronze Award for top high schools in the nation based on recent student performance.
To produce the 2015 Best High School rankings, U.S. News & World Report teamed with North Carolina-based RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm.
RTI implemented the U.S. News comprehensive rankings methodology, which is based on these key principles: that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
Amite County High School was given a bronze rating from the field of 29,070 public high schools reviewed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
At Minnesota, Wilson was a two-year starter and an extremely productive linebacker for the Gophers defense. In 26 career games, 24 starts, the 22-year-old racked up some gaudy numbers for Minnesota.
Damien Wilson's Career Statistics
Tackles for Loss
Wilson should be able to develop into a quality starter for the Cowboys down the road, which is a great value in the fourth round.
This year, Wilson will likely back up Sean Lee at the "Will" linebacker position primarily and possibly even Rolando McClain at the "Mike" linebacker position in a pinch. Wilson's real impact will come on special teams, where his athleticism and toughness should allow him to make a huge impact.
