TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Godby High School boys basketball team fell short of a repeat State Championship this year, as they fell to Bishop Kenny in the Class 5A Regional Finals. Here's a bigger accomplishment though, over the past two years, the Cougars have sent six student-athletes to college.
Forward Jeremy Myers lucky number six to sign, as he inked with South Georgia Tech on Thursday, a junior college in Americus, Georgia. Myers, who played at Godby his senior season, helped lead the Cougars to that Elite Eight appearance and a 25-4 mark.
"The success that this team had this year, not just myself, has prepared all of us for the college level," he said Thursday. "It's prepared us to get to class on time, just prepared us period. Me and my parents, we always wanted me to go to get a free education somewhere, and I'm happy I found basketball to let me get the opportunity to do that."
Four Madison County athletes joined Myers in signing on Thursday. Lineman Tony Wooten, safety Kenny McQuay, and receiver Christian Brown all inked with Tucson Prep in Arizona, while linebacker Ed Davis is headed north to suit up for North Carolina Wesleyan, a Division III college.
