Triple signing day for Falcons
By Samantha Lyles, Staff Writer, email@example.com
It was a banner day for Darlington High School football as three Falcons signed letters of intent to continue their education and their football careers.
During his time at DHS, Antonio Hannah earned distinction as an All-Region linebacker and three-year Varsity Letterman, and won a silver medal in a state strength competition. Hannah will attend Bethany College in West Virginia, a move that will require him to transition from defense to offense as the Bison want Hannah to play running back.
“I picked Bethany because it feels like home. It’s a nice campus,” says Hannah, who plans to study physical training and aims for a career in the health and fitness field.
Falcon running back and four-time Letterman Trayvon Thomas left his mark on the gridiron in a big way, winning 3-A Lower State Running Back of the Year, playing on the North-South All Star Team, being named to the WPDE All Zone Team and winning All-Region player (twice). Thomas will enroll at Palmetto Prep Academy in Columbia with an eye toward eventually playing for the University of South Carolina Gamecocks.
“I want to go there (Palmetto Prep), attend for a year then get a scholarship and go on to USC,” says Thomas, adding that he plans to study business and marketing.
Two-time Letterman Tyriq Workman shone in the Falcon’s wide receiving corps and will continue his studies and athletic career at Orangeburg Calhoun Prep Academy.
“I feel like I can go there and get better, become a better potential player,” says Workman, noting that his studies will include both athletic and medical aspects. “I’m planning on majoring in physical therapy.”
