YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – It was a table set for five Wednesday at Chaney High School, as members of the football team signed their way to the college level.
Three of the players chose the same path. Linebacker KeyShaun Davis, along with playmaker Migel Burgess and wide receiver Raymond Logan committed to the Blue Knights of Urbana University.
“It means everything because of all the hard work everybody put in,” said Logan. “Just knowing that making it to the next level, that everybody don’t have that chance to and now I have a chance to do it, so it’s kind of a blessing.”
“You know, after I waited a couple of weeks after I saw two of my teammates commit, I knew I’d feel more comfortable,” said Davis.
“I dreamed about it, actually,” said Burgess about the thought of playing collegiate football. “And it felt good actually just playing college football and playing with the big guys now.”
Two of the Herron triplets will continue playing football together as well. Marquan and Marquise Herron chose the University of Charleston.
“We can help each other,” says Marquise Herron. “We can take the same majors and minors. So we going to be able to help each other in class.”
“It’s actually good,” says Marquan Herron. “I’m actually happy I got my brother with me. We were trying to get all three of us, but two will make it. I mean, we can make a difference there with just two of us.”
