One of the most accomplished athletes in Chartiers-Houston history has made his college decision.

A.J. Myers committed to North Greenville University last week. Myers will basketball at the Division II school located in Tigerville, S.C. Myers chose North Greenville over Washington & Jefferson and Carlow.

"I chose North Greenville because it's a great fit for me. They treated me like family on my visit and they gave me a great offer and it was hard to pass up," Myers said.

Myers, a 6-foot-1 senior guard, was a four-year starter at Chartiers-Houston and finished his career as the school's all-time leading scorer. A two-time all-section choice, Myers averaged 23 points per game last season and was named third-team all-state while leading Chartiers-Houston to its first section title. The Bucs finished 19-6 and reached the WPIAL Class 2A quarterfinals and the first round of the PIAA playoffs.

But basketball was not the only sport in which Myers excelled. He was a four-year starter and two-time all-conference honoree as a wide receiver for the Chartiers-Houston football team. As a senior, he had 37 catches for 779 yards and nine touchdowns and helped the Bucs qualify for the WPIAL Class 2A playoffs.

Myers had not played baseball since sixth grade, but joined the varsity team this season and ended up hitting better than .400. The Bucs advanced to the WPIAL Class 2A playoffs.
