Christopher Dock's Jared Armstrong, who recorded his 1,000th career point last season, announced two weeks ago his decision to transfer to Virginia's Fork Union Military Academy for his senior season.

The 5-foot-10 guard averaged 16.3 points per game this season and said he has an offer from San Jose State and interest from Notre Dame, Xavier, Tulane, Delaware, and St. Louis. He emailed The Inquirer an explanation about his decision:

"Fork Union is a great fit for me both academically, spiritually, and athletically, with a great background in athletics and academics....The hardest part of Fork Union is isolation. During the duration of school, you are not allowed to have a cell phone, and only can call home with a prepaid card using a office phone. It will teach me how to stay focus...It was a family decision. I’m headed to Fork Union to embark on a new journey. Although I will miss the Christopher Dock community, my family and I thought it was the best situation for me and I feel blessed to be apart of an prestigious institution as Fork Union that come with great history and respect."
