Three Kossuth High School football players earned scholarships to play football at Northeast Mississippi Community College.
Jaley Adams, Beau Lee and Blake Arnold on Wednesday signed papers to join the Northeast football program.
Adams said he is happy about going to Northeast but realizes he must work hard to get where he needs to be. He will play running back and major in nursing.
Lee said the three of them will make a positive impact on Northeast.
“I feel like we’re going to have a good, strong program,” said Lee, who plans to major in electrical engineering or be a football coach.
Lee will play wide receiver at Northeast and said he is happy about going to the football program with two fellow players from Kossuth.
Likewise, Arnold is ready to join the Northeast football program and said he will play offensive or defensive line.
“I’m ready for it,” said Arnold, adding that he will probably study to be a physical trainer.
Kossuth head football Coach Brian Kelly said he is “extremely proud” of the three players and that their futures look bright
“They’ve accomplished a lot,” Kelly said. “I expect nothing less at Northeast. We appreciate the hard work and the effort you put in here at Kossuth.”
