Godby High School Celebrates Three Signings Thursday

TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - Thursday was an exciting day at Godby High School, as the Cougars celebrated three signings.

Twins Montre and Montreal Edwards continue a rich tradition of Godby basketball players to sign, as both will continue their careers at Thomas University, an NAIA program in Thomasville, Georgia.

Volleyball standout Emoni Bittle will suit up for the Edward Waters Tigers next season. Bittle, who is originally from Gadsden County, is the first Gadsden County athlete to sign a volleyball scholarship since 1982.

"I just want to inspire some other little girl out there that wants to play in Gadsden County," she said of her big day. "If this was six years ago, I wouldn't have thought that I'd be at this moment right here."

"I always wanted to sign a scholarship and it's a thing that happened," said Montreal, who along with his brother, was 50-6 at Godby. "I'm just blessed and happy that all my work paid off."

"It's a package deal. Either you have to take both of us, or we won't go," pitched in Montre. "We've been playing together since we were little, so this is a big level for me to step up and play college basketball with him."
