Eight members of Hillside’s Class of 2013 signed their names to the college of their choice at the school’s Signing Day Ceremony on Feb. 6.
These seniors (pictured from left to right above) were Austin Weeks-University at Albany-SUNY, Que Cherry-Elizabeth City State University, Dontavious Jackson- Shaw University, Jordyn Smith-Howard University, Korrin Wiggins-Clemson University, Jaiven Knight- College of William & Mary, Dwight Campbell-N.C. State University and Cinco Simmons-Averett University.
All the seniors said their athletic scholarships were a “blessing” and a “great opportunity.”
“My motivation was to not have my mom breaking a sweat to get me in college,” Knight said.
These athletes have big goals for their collegiate careers.
Jackson said he wants to “bring the school back, play in a bowl, make a big impact and change how people see Shaw.”
Campbell said he wants to play football “forever.”
