"It was a surreal feeling. Last night I was talking to my parents about it. This something I was talking about since I was crawling. All the work I put in in the off-season led up to this point. Some people see it as the end of the road and I see it as the beginning." - Cale Cormaney

Q Jones - football - Dartmouth University
Jayden Fuller - football - Mid-America Nazarene
Ricky Rivera - football - Ohio Northern University
Malik McClarity - football - Midland University

"I looked up to a lot of kids, a lot of kids who did not do things right. So my whole thing is when I got my opportunity to play football, I wanted kids to look up to me and know the decision I make - it can impact your life. By me going to Darmouth, and convincing Ahmir to go to Dartmouth, that just shows kids the opportunity and a life lesson that football is just not football, you got to put it together with academics." - Q Jones
