Area seniors signing for college football had a chance to celebrate at a breakfast thrown by the National Football Foundation at the Norwood Hills Country Club on Feb. 3. The breakfast started with a speech from Howard Richards, former Dallas Cowboys player. All of the players lined up at the podium and announced their college of choice. After breakfast the players headed back to the high school to sign their letters of intent. Parents and relatives huddled around their players to show their support. “The scholarship [Garden City Community College] gave me was for a full ride for books and tuition,” said KeAndre Bledsoe. “I also received a $1000 scholarship for being named MVP of the senior All Star game to help with housing.” Bledsoe hopes to ultimately be recruited by a larger school.
