Coahoma Football Has Successful Signing Day

Coahoma Football Has Successful Signing Day
Posted By: Elynor Moss on February 14, 2018

Coahoma Football worked hard from sunrise to sunset on National Signing Day. Head Coach Steven Miller and his coaching staff have come up big in bringing in some of the best talent in America. The program has signed 25 prospects in the recruiting class of 2018.

It takes a team effort to convince athletes far and wide that Coahoma Community College is the place to be. Assistant Coach/Recruiting Coordinator Charles Lee has been through the recruiting wars for a long time. He knows that recruiters must work harder than the next man to get the best player their heart's desire.

“It’s a stressful day in the beginning. You never know what a 17, 18 or 19 year old is thinking,” said Lee. “The most important thing is to get that Letter of Intent faxed to us.”

16 prospects signed on National Signing Day. These recruits decided to be a part of the “Rise of Tiger Nation.”

Coach Miller was very excited about his recruiting class and feel confident that they will step up immediately.

“Signing Day was different this year,” said Miller. “We targeted recruits to replace a lot of our departing players from the previous year. We had a great day for our program at Coahoma Community College.”
