Perry had 18 student-athletes sign scholarships Wednesday on National Signing Day. Eleven of those were for football. They were: Quintavious Kendrick, LaGrange College; Jordan Stubbs, University of Cumberlands; Jaden Brown, Berry College; Price Massey, Louisburg College; Casson Clark, Gardner Webb University; Brant Gibson, Georgia Military College; Curtis Head, Georgia Military College; Donovan Haslam, Austin Peay; Xavier Roberts, Phoenix City; Khiari Miller, Virginia Tech and Khiari Miller, Virginia Tech.
“So proud of this group of young men,” said Head Football Coach Kevin Smith of his. “We had 24 seniors this year. We’ve got 10 signing today. We’ll have one more signing and maybe a couple of more.
“That’s almost 50 percent. That goes to show you what kind of effort that’s been put in … Just a little bit about our season. All of these guys and our football players sitting here today are part of the most winningest football team in school history, this past season. We won back-to-back region championships for the first time in school history. We won 10 games, and then won 11 games for the first time in school history. We hosted back-to-back quarterfinals appearances for the first time in school history.
That tells you what kind of ability is sitting here on my left as far as football’s concerned. This senior class has really pushed the bar up. It’s not going to be 16 years before we break another school record, because this team right here has taken on the foundation that the seniors before them, four years ago, started. And they pushed it up real high.”
Another five were in baseball. They were: Tanner Knowles, University of Georgia; Alex Scarborough, Taccoa Falls; Dylan Butler, South Georgia State; Wyatt Doyle and Carson Bryant, ABAC.
Reagan Hughes also signed a Letter of Intent to play softball and attend South Georgia State College.
Beau’Elise Houston signed for volleyball at Middle Georgia State University.
