VIDEO: Bulldogs boast large sign-out class

MILLEDGEVILLE — At the junior college level, each season success is measured not only by wins and losses, but also by player development.

Nothing shows that a program is developing players better than a large sign-out class, much less to major National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I schools across the nation, which is exactly what Georgia Military College was able to accomplish yesterday morning in the Sibley-Cone Library by signing out seven players to four-year institutions.

Taking the next step were Jakevin Jackson (Western Michigan University), Davaroe Lawrence (Auburn University), Ty Flournoy-Smith (University of Alabama), Kenderius Whitehead (Georgia Institute of Technology), Qunitavious Knight (Marshall University), Devon Williams (University of Kansas) and Jarvez Holmes (Miles College).

“It’s the number one thing we want to do with the guys coming in—put them in position to graduate and be able to accept the opportunity at the highest level, which is what we’ve been able to do this year,” head coach Bert Williams said.

The Bulldogs boast a sign out class of nearly 20 players to cap off one the historic season in the fall that saw the team finish as the National Junior College Athletic Association Runner-up.

“Now we’ve had seven on the ground here today, sign, but we’ve got another seven or eight at home that are finishing up through our online campus, that are also signing at a number of Division I schools, so we’re real proud of the whole group,” Williams said following the signing. “We had some sign at Christmas as well, so we’ve got somewhere between 18 and 20 now that have signed and penned and are moving on. That’s what we work real hard to do is train these guys on the field to get better, but mainly to come in here and take care of what they need to take care of in the classroom.
