A pair of Eagles taking flight from Mitchell County

MITCHELL CO., GA (WALB) - Mitchell county has its best football season in nearly 2 decades.

A large part of their run was fueled by two seniors who are continuing their playing careers at the next level.

Anthony McIntyre and Devin Vicks signed their letters of intent Friday morning at Mitchell County High School.

McIntyre will be playing linebacker and studying sports medicine for Eastern Arizona College.

Vicks will be studying civil Engineering at West Virginia Christian College.

Both credit their experience in Camilla for the next opportunity.

"It helped me grow, basically made me a man," said Vicks. "It helped me get along with others and helped me teach my brothers how to react to certain situations on the football field."

"I had some good leaders when I was in the 9th and 10th grade," said McIntyre. "So that helped me to be a leader and lead those guys my 11th and 12 grade years."

McIntyre is also a former WALB Albany-Area player of the week.

The 2018 class was the first to win two region titles with the eagles since 1992.
