Cougars Sign Letter Of IntentBy Brian Lewis– Nine College of the Canyons football players earned the opportunity to play at the next level by signing letters of intent today. Four of the nine Cougars have signed with Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) universities, two will take their game to the Southeastern Conference.

Safety Josh Gibbs will be roaming the secondary for the Wildcats of Kentucky and tight end Mychal Rivera will be catching touchdowns for the University of Tennessee Volunteers. Outside linebacker Evan Harrington has decided to transfer to the University of Colorado. Offensive lineman Louiszell Alexander will be playing at Syracuse University for his final two years.

College of the Canyons football coach Garrett Tujague states, “I am very excited for these young men. Every single one of these players has persevered through the struggles of being a student athlete, and today is the day that all that hard work comes to fruition. The coaches and myself wish them many successes at the next level.”

While National Signing Day has come and passed, coach Tujague expects more COC football players to commit to four-year schools.
