It was a busy morning for head coach Roger Holmes and his Fighting Irish coaching staff, as seven of their players signed their letters of intent to play football at the next level.
"It's a great day for Dublin High School," coach Holmes says.
Natavious Daniel and Trevious Williams signed to play at Point University in West Georgia. Daniel played linebacker for the Fighting Irish, and hopes to continue in that position. Williams was a defensive end and linebacker for coach Holmes, and wants to continue on as a linebacker.
Ben East and his twin brother, Rob, both signed on as Mercer University Bears. Rob was a quarterback and punter while in Dublin, and wants to continue on as leader of the offense. Ben filled spots on both the defensive and offensive line, as well as the tight end position. He says he wants to continue with the Bears as a defensive player, or as their tight end.
Joshua Kates and Rayshaw O'Neal signed to Union College in Kentucky. Kates played defensive end, and hopes to continue in that position. O'Neal spent his four years in Dublin as the corner back and running back. He is signing his letter, intending to continue on as a corner back.
Cedric O'Neal, cousin to Rayshaw, made his commitment to Valdosta State, and wants to continue his role there as a running back.
