Three standout Pennsbury High School athletes signed agreements to play for colleges during a ceremony aired on the school’s TV network.
Cross Country player Sara Sargent was first to sign papers for University of Virginia during the morning event attended by her parents, school officials and media.
The senior recounted she was not all that interested in going to University of Virginia at first. She said on her initial campus tour the school did not impress her.
“I don’t know what I was thinking,” Sargent said with a giggle. “Now, I can’t see myself going anywhere else.”
Soccer player Lexi Brown made her intent to play at West Chester University official surrounded by her family.
Brown said she has been playing soccer since she was five and practices and workouts fives times a week.
Pennsbury Falcons Varsity Football starter and fullback Daquan Mack signed his papers as his smiling mother looked on. He will be attending University of Massachusetts.
Head football coach Galen Snyder called Mack a leader and an “impressive force on the field.”
The senior football star thanked his teachers at Pennsbury for making him stay on track.
“I didn’t really think things like this could happen,” he said with grin on his face.
