Pleasantville senior Duke Mack signed a full scholarship on Sunday to run track at Delaware State University.
The Greyhound chose the Hornets over Hampton in part because of Delaware State assistant coach Steve Lewis.
Lewis, who had head coaching stints at Eastern Michigan and Pittsburgh, is a close friend and mentor of Pleasantville coach Alan Laws Sr.
Lewis coached Laws, a former 800-meter all-American, at Pitt in the mid-1980s.
"Delaware State is looking for me for both the 400 and 800 meters," Mack said.
