Brookstone pair signs with CVCC

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Chattahoochee Valley Pirates brought a pair of Brookstone Cougars on board Thursday morning.

Cougar seniors Tim Kennedy and Drew Lingo signed national letters of intent to play for the Pirates, both citing a comfort with head coach Adam Thomas as a key factor.

"I just really like Coach Thomas," Kennedy said. "I feel like CV is a place—I just feel comfortable there. I think it would be the place for me."

Thursday was also the end of the always-stressful recruiting period for the athletes.

"It's great," Lingo said. "It's a good feeling to have off my back. All year, not really knowing where I'm going is kind of stressful, but Coach Thomas said he wanted me and once I made the decision, it was a lot of relief."

Kennedy admitted CVCC wasn't first on his list, or any junior college for that matter. But the Pirate pitch was too good to ignore.

"Once I realized CV was looking at me, I thought it might be better than going to a four-year school, just to get used to the college level," he said.

Lingo said a number of Bi-City connections helped him make his decision.

"I know they have a great program," he said. "There are a couple kids there that play there that went to Columbus High and Northside, and I talked to them when I visited, they said they love it. I couldn't turn it down. There was no reason for me not to go."

Kennedy, Lingo and the rest of the Cougars have two more non-region games to wrap up the regular season before postseason play begins on Wednesday, May 3.
