Two Seahawks sign on to college football

Published: Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 03:07 PM.

Causey, a rightfielder for Hawks’ baseball, and a wingman and fullback for the soccer team, excelled as running back, receiver and punter for the Seahawks, as well as defensive end and linebacker. As a young man he played football in middle school, but sat out his high school years before returning last fall to play for York.

The 5’9” 185-pounder runs a 4.5 second 40-yard dash, and is expected to be redshirted as a freshman as he buffs up for college play. He plans to major in sports medicine.

He said he was impressed with Louisiana College when he paid a visit with his parents over President’s Day weekend. On a tour with the health of the health and physical education program, he had a chance to meet the college president.

York said the football program competes year after a year to win the America Southwest Conference, and will square off against some of the finest small college teams in Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi and Georgia.

In Golden’s case, he may see playing time next year under the scheme of offensive coordination Jared Powers, with the Royals facing several Div. I-AA schools. On the schedule next year is a date against Florida Tech, where former Seahawk Dalin Modican is a standout wide receiver.

“This could be you some day,” York encouraged the audience of high school students, before introducing Causey and Golden to much applause.

“Well, we did it,” said Causey, who thanks his parents and God. “Anybody can do this if they work hard at it. Do what you gotta do; do the work.”
