ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Three Sherwood Christian Eagles are going to stay teammates in college.

Sherwood Christian stars Darren Akins, Phillip English and Chris Roberts all signed to play at St. Augustine's College in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Chris Roberts was a GISA all state performer for the Eagles at tight end and defensive line.

Roberts had 12 quarterback sacks this season.

Running back Phillip English is a versatile athlete who had 1300 all-purpose yards.

English can run the football, catch it out of the backfield and is dangerous return man special teams.

Darren Akins was a defensive force on the Eagles line.

Akins had 74 tackles and seven quarterback sacks in earning all-region honors.

The three join a St. Augustine team that won nine games including a victory over Fort Valley State in the Pioneer Bowl.



Chris Roberts said. "I actually didn't dream about it. Come along my 10th grade year I tried out for a sport. I never thought I would go to college."

Phillip English said. "It is a great school man. I took a visit. Pretty much it just seemed like home."

Darren Akins said "It is pretty good to go off to college with one of your teammates. You won't be by yourself. It will be a good experience for all three of us here."


St. Augustine College beat Fort Valley State in the Pioneer Bowl in Columbus.
