High School CareerNicky Solomon became Georgia’s all-time leading scorer at the end of his high school career - taking over the title from his older brother Nathan Solomon. He is 2nd all-time for career assists. The list of most points in a game for Georgia is a good nutshell for how Solomon’s career went - posting 18 games of at least 10 points. Solomon was part of a trio of players that includes Colin Hall (324) and Ryan Siracusa (314) that finished 2018 with at least 300 career points. That appears to be the first time in history that three players with that many points have been on the same roster at the same time. “We worked so well together. I’ve been playing with Colin since I was probably 8-years old. He just knows where to be and where to go,” Solomon said. “It’s just how our offense usually works. I would dodge, I was double-teamed, and both of them would be open. And that’s how it kept going for a couple of years.” The icing on Solomon's career was playing in the Under Armour All-America game at Johns Hopkins. That game marks the last time a player gets to play in what is considered a high school game - albeit with the best 44 players in the nation. With the spotlight on, Solomon shined. He scored four goals to help the South to a 22-15 win over the North and earned MVP honors. Nicky Solomon played in 12 football games his senior season and converted 57-of-58 extra points and kicked 12 field goals. His longest field goal on the season was a 48-yarder. Before he knew it, Solomon had five offers to play football. But UNC was always the choice. And as happens, UNC was watching. “My UNC lacrosse coach thought it would be cool for me to play two sports in college,” Solomon said. “I was emailing with the UNC coach, and he said he had me a spot on the team already because he saw my highlights.” Solomon has a preferred walk-on role with the Atlantic Coast Conference program. There are four place-kickers listed on the Tarheel’s roster with two of them seniors.
