It was an exciting day on Wednesday, Feb. 3 as three Madison County High School Cowboys participated in National Signing Day and signed off with colleges of their choice at 2:45 p.m. in the MCHS cafeteria. Marcus Fleming, who plays on the defensive line for the Cowboys, signed off with Albany State. “I'm looking forward to seeing how much I grow as an athlete [while attending Albany State],” said Fleming. He hopes to make it to the NFL someday but if that dream isn't meant to be, he plans to become a football coach. Patrick Brown, who signed off with Eastern Arizona Community College, plans to major in engineering while also playing football. He states that he is looking forward to playing on a college level and had multiple schools wanting him on their team, but eventually he chose Eastern Arizona because, although they focused on academics more than athletics, Brown felt the college he chose cared most about him and his well-being. Kentwan Daniels, who is currently a quarterback for the Cowboys, signed off with Albany State. He will be playing defensive back at Albany State and is looking forward most to playing on a college level and enjoying the college experience. He feels accomplished and great about signing off with Albany State because he has always wanted to sign off as a football player. He hopes to make it to the NFL but if he doesn't take that route, he wants his future career, after college, to revolve around football, whether he chooses to be a physical therapist or an athletic coach. Congratulations to all three of these Cowboys! Although they will be far from Madison as they take further pursuits in education, the Madison County community will always be their support, wishing them well in their future successes.
