Four Hawks sign NLIs

COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Four athletes from Hardaway High School signed national letters of intent to play their sports in college on Thursday.

Tetris Sweat will play football at West Georgia Tech.

"It's really exciting," he said. "It's a blessing. I just have to maintain hard work and keep doing what you're doing."

A pair Hawks will be at LaGrange College next season. Ronald Rosser will play football, and is looking forward to the challenge.

"The competition will be a lot harder," he said. "It will make me work harder, all around. Playing at the college level, people are bigger, faster, stronger, smarter."

He'll be joined by Sterling Ancrum, who'll play volleyball, and said the choice was easy.

"They had a good education program, which will be my major," she said. "They welcomed me with open arms, and I felt at home."

Finally, Rick Barry will run track in Chattanooga, Tenn. at Tennessee Temple. He says he'll carry lessons from Hardaway with him to college.

"I'm going to miss my coaches, I really am," he said. "I'm going to miss my teachers. My teachers have brought me a long way. I'm going to miss all my teachers, all the educators, everybody here."
