Sonora, CA — With the 86th pick in the NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected tight end Kahale Warring.
Click here to view a feature story we did this past January on the Sonora High School graduate. While in high school the multi-sport athlete competed in basketball, water polo, soccer, cross country and tennis. Amazingly, he waited until his senior year to finally give football a try, and the following year he walked on with the San Diego State Aztecs.
Warring declared for the NFL after his junior season, when he was an Honorable Mention All Mountain West Conference selection. He finished his final year with 31 catches for 372 yards. Prior to be taken in the third round by the Texans, Warring had a successful NFL combine where the 6’6″, 250 pound tight end, ran the forty yard dash in 4.67 seconds.
The last Sonora High School Graduate to play in the NFL was fullback Josh Parry. He went un-drafted in 2001, but went on to have a successful career with the Eagles, Raiders and Seahawks organizations.
