Six athletes signed letters of intent to compete at the collegiate level Wednesday in the main gym as family and friends packed the gym to watch.

Levi Williams, who signed his letter of intent to the University of Houston, threw for about 3,000 yards and had 31 touchdowns in his two years as a starting quarterback.

“I fell in love with in Houston because it felt like a family up there and the coaches are awesome,” he said. “The program is awesome as well, so it just felt like a perfect fit.”

Ronald Copney signed his letter of intent to Texas State University for football. Ronald joined the football team before the 2017-18 season and immediately earned his starting spot at offensive line.

“I just want to be a leader at Texas State, freshman leader at first and just working with the new guys,” Copney said.

Mason Reid signed his letter of intent to the University of North Texas. A four-year starter as  kicker, his highlight of the year was his 51-yard game winning field goal against Steele.

“I was actually on my way to visit colleges in the northern part of Texas,” Reid said, “and the coach texted me to visit, and it all worked out as you can see we we’re at now.”

Tyler Horn signed his letter of intent to Dodge City Community College for golf. Softball player Hannah Kollmansberger signed her letter of intent to Schreiner University in Kerrville while rotational pitcher Preston Jones plans to play baseball at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas City.

“I felt right at home at Fort Scott,” Jones said. “I think it will provide me with the opportunity to do well not only on the field, but in the classroom as well.”
