FORT VALLEY -- Peach County is a program that has become very familiar with National Signing Day through the years thanks to one of the strongest football programs in Middle Georgia.
Two more Trojans wrote another chapter in that success story Wednesday when Malcolm Colvin and Dylan Leach signed their national letters-of-intent to continue playing football at the college level.
Demarcus Robinson was not present at the ceremony in Fort Valley because he enrolled early at Florida. One of the top prospects in the Gators class, Robinson is arguably the top wide receiver in Georgia.
I stay in contact with him and the coaches there (Florida) once or twice a week, Peach County head coach Chad Campbell said. They are just ecstatic to have him, and hes been doing great this first month there. He seems to be happy, and its unfortunate that hes not here (for the ceremony), but hes frying bigger fish down there.
Colvin was a member of the Telegraphs All-Middle Georgia first-team offense at tight end, and he signed with Chattanooga from the Southern Conference.
Malcolm is dual enrolled at Fort Valley State, and he already has some college credits under his belt, Campbell said. Hes a great student, and hes been a great ambassador for our school. Hes just been a joy to coach and a joy to be around.
The future mechanical engineering major wore a huge smile when he talked what he would look back upon after graduation.
Im going to remember those Friday nights in that stadium, up under those lights, and in between those cinder blocks the most, Colvin said. Its just a lot of happy thoughts. Im going to miss it here, but Im looking forward to the whole college experience.
Leach chose the University of the South-Sewanee. He also plans to major in engineering.
Dylan is going to a great academic institution, and we wish him the best of luck, Campbell said.
