Five varsity football players signed letters of intent in front of family and friends on National Signing Day making commitments to themselves on where they will be a student-athlete for college.

Chandler Mann, Shawn Brooks II, Peyton Boji, Samuel Sanderson, and Donovan Prott all made their announcements on Wednesday, Feb.  6.

Mann said he had six schools offer him scholarships and he decided to commit to Missouri Baptist University.

“It’s a big weight lifted off my shoulders because the recruiting process is stressful,” he said. “I’m excited to start the next chapter of my life and ready for the challenge of it all.”

The other football players all signed with the University of St. Francis (Joliet, Illinois).

As a friend and fan, it’s always a bittersweet moment to watch your peers sign off to go to college, but there’s a sense of accomplishment and pride for them. Being able to watch these five boys grow as athletes and as people these past four years on and off the field has been amazing, and I’m looking forward to watching their journey continue.
