Tar Heels' call a strong one for Latin's Paschal

Charlotte Latin senior LB/SS/SR Paul Paschal has had feelers from other schools, but all his life, football has been colored Carolina Blue.

So Paschal, who could almost certainly get a scholarship at a smaller school, is likely to walk on at North Carolina, Latin coach Larry McNulty said today.

Paschal’s dad was Doug Paschal, a fullback and four-year letterman at UNC who graduated in 1979. Then older brother Mark was an outstanding linebacker in Chapel Hill before a spine injury ended his career during his 2008 senior year.

Paul Paschal is 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, with 4.65 speed in the 40-yard dash. If he does walk on for the Tar Heels, he could develop into a contributor. The genes are certainly there.

Here’s some video on Paschal’s work for Latin.
