Of all seven seniors signing, they all played football.

Earlier that morning senior Tyrese Spain admitted to signing to Bethune Cookman University, therefore he did not sit on stage during the assembly.

Of the six on stage, three made the decision to sign to Becker College.

Elijah Hill, Marterrence Holloway, and  Agyenim Thomas all signed to Becker college.

“it just seemed perfect for me” said Hill, on why he decided to continue his football career at Becker.

“I want to thank my mom…she has been taking care of me by herself so I want to thank her” said Holloway who gave out a special thanks o his mother during his speech.

“Becker was showing the most love out of the three offers I got. They texted me two weeks after my injury letting me know that they were trying to give me a chance to play, so I thought that meant a lot” said Thomas “I am really excited because I honestly thought that I wouldn’t be playing football again.”

Quinlan Gatlin made the decision to sign to Florida A&M University.

“FAMU has a lot of offers for me, I love the campus I love the facilities, and I love everything about it” said Gatlin when asked why he felt it was the best for him to sign to FAMU.

Defensive lineman, Andrew Patterson signed to play for Lake Erie College.

“I think Lake Erie was the best decision,” said Patterson “I am my own person , and I am trying to find my own way because mom and dad aren’t going to be here all the time.”

He hopes to play football, and work towards becoming a doctor when attending Lake Erie.
