Eagle Point high school held a signing party for six senior football players on Feb 5. Those six players have had exemplary careers with the Eagles, three will be attending schools outside Oregon, three will be attending Southern Oregon University. The letter of intent is more than a sign of commitment, it is also a sign that the particular college is committed to giving them a chance to play at a higher level. Bryson Baker, James Bowers and Donald Everett will be attending College of the Siskiyous; Payton Dole will attend the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and Carlos Flores and Lucas Morris will be attending Southern Oregon University.
Lucas Morris is heading for Southern Oregon University, where he will be playing football. While in high school, he played baseball, basketball and football, lettering in Baseball for three years, and twice in basketball.
Donald Everett will enter a two year course in nursing at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed California, then plans on transferring to a four year school to continue his education in nursing. Everett is a three year letterman in football and while he played other sports, none were as important to him as football. His most memorable moment in the sport was as a sophomore running back, he ran for a 70-yard touchdown. Everett played both running back and line backer.
Carlos Flores played wide receiver for coach Seth Womak. Following his graduation from Eagle Point, he will enter Southern Oregon University and plans on a career in criminal justice. During his years in Eagle Point, he has received several honors including being name MVP at the SOU Football camp, was selected to he all-conference team and led the league in yards gained for a wide receiver. His most memorabe moment came at the expense of Marist High school, when the Eagles came from Behind to beat the two-time state champs on their home field.
Payton Dole will be attending the Air Force Academy in the fall. He would have been a three year letterman in football, had he not broken his ankle during the start of his Junior year. As a senior, Payton could be seen at running back, wide receiver or Tighe end on offiense, at the Outside Linebacker position on defense. During his first two year course at the Academy, he will take general classes and then decide on a course of study for the balance of his career. He hopes to play football in the A-1 division school.
Bryson Baker will be playing for College of the Siskiyous in Weed California.
James Bowers will be attending college of the Siskiyous in the fall and has yet to decide what course of study he will be taking.
