Worth County held second football signing day

Worth County held second football signing day

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - The Rams already had three seniors sign in February. The grand total is now up to seven.

That's the biggest class since Jason Tone took over as head coach in 2013.

Over a hundred students packed the Worth County cafeteria on Wednesday to witness a few of their fellow classmates sign letters to play at the next level.

Right guard Ryan Alligood and center Jeremiah Motin are both headed to the state of Iowa.

Alligood will suit up for Waldorf University and Motin will play at Iowa Wesleyan.

Mesabi Range is pulling in two kids from Sylvester.

Nose guard Brandon Toomer will join running back Chris McDaniel to play just south of the Canadian border out in Northern Minnesota.

McDaniel led the Rams in rushing each of the last three seasons in Worth County's Wing-T offense.

The senior tallied 1,361 yards this past year.

He chose the junior college route after being passed on by Division I-A schools.

McDaniel has a hunch on why he was overlooked.

"My size and all," the senior back said. "But I'm a powerful runner. I got speed, got agility, but I feel I need to beat on my craft more."

Mesabi Range sent nine athletes to a Division I school this past year.

McDaniel plans to be on that list sooner than later.
