Park View’s Neville commits to Saint Augustine’s with full ride

South Boston News
Surrounded by family and coaches, German Neville signs a Letter of Intent to play football at Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, N.C. / March 14, 2018

Park View senior running back German Neville signed a Letter of Intent last month in South Hill to attend and play football at Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, N.C. this fall.

SAU offered Neville a full scholarship if he decided to attend the university. Neville said he was happy that Saint Augustine’s came calling.

“I really appreciate being offered the full ride,” said Neville. “I’ve got much love for Saint Augustine’s and I’m thankful.”

Norfolk State University as well as some other schools — including a college in Ohio — had shown interest in Neville.

“St. Aug’s”, as it’s fondly known, is a NCAA Division II school. The Falcons are a member of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).

Park View had a solid season in 2017 finishing 7-3. At 5’6’’, 172-pounds, Neville was a four-year starter for the football program.

Saint Augustine’s University also had a decent 2017 football season, finishing at 5-2 in their division – 5-5 overall — good for a tie for first place with Fayetteville State University.

The Broncos eventually advanced to the CIAA Championship game after prevailing in a matchup with Winston-Salem State.

One great positive for Neville is that SAU had four student-athletes named to the 2017 All-CIAA Football Rookie Team. Six players received All-CIAA Football Honors, three on the first team.

Saint Augustine’s University is a historically black college located in North Carolina’s capital city. The college was founded in 1867 in Raleigh by prominent Episcopal clergy for the education of freed enslaved persons.
