Thirteen athletes from South signed their letter of intent to play sports at the collegiate level on Feb. 1. 

Dillon Thomas, senior, will be attending Northern Illinois University this fall, and will be playing cornerback for the huskies.

He said, “The coaches and the recruits were amazing to me, and the overall atmosphere was great.”

Thomas has played a major role in the South football organization, and he hopes to do the same at the collegiate level.

Josh Wood will be attending Azusa Pacific College in the fall of 2017. Wood, senior, signed to play with his best friend, Colton Smith.

He said, “I’m super excited because it will bring a lot of new things into my life, I’m just ready for college.”

Everett Horton, a senior at Park Hill South, signed to play football for Missouri Western University. Horton, who started 3 years for the Panthers, said that the reason he chose Missouri Western was because of the nice facilities and great new coaching staff.

“I’m looking forward to grinding in the offseason,” said Horton, “and getting ready for the next stage in my life.”
