An unprecedented seven Seahawk seniors signed on the dotted line May 7 as they committed to college scholarships to play in their respective sports.

Added to the two football players who signed last month, this total of nine Seahawks committed to college sports marked a new pinnacle in the school’s seven-year sports program.

The Seahawks who signed at the afternoon rally in the gym were a collection of four soccer players, two softball players and one basketball player.

Former girls soccer coach Kelli Maggio Wright, now a phys ed teacher and assistant coach at Arnold High School in Panama City, was on hand as current girls soccer coach Joe Shields introduced the two girl soccer stars he helped develop - Gracyn Kirvin and Adriana Reeder – who are both on their way to play for the Faulkner University Eagles, a private Christian school in Montgomery, Alabama.

The boys coach, Ramon Valenzuela, helped introduced the Seahawk boys soccer stars - James Harris and Graham Kirvin – who have committed to play for the Thomas University Night Hawks, a private liberal arts school in Thomasville, Georgia.

Lady Seahawk coach Scott Collins introduced the two players - Ashley Carroll and Ally Millender – who have committed to playing for the Wallace Community College Lady Govs, at the two-year institution of higher learning, formerly known as George C. Wallace State Community College, in located in Dothan, Alabama. Wallace’s interim head softball coach Ronny Lunsford was on hand for the signing.

The lone basketball player to sign was senior Cameron White, who will dress for the Trinity Baptist College Eagles, at a private university in Jacksonville. His future coach, John D. Jones, attended the signing ceremony.
