FORT VALLEY - Four of the five Peach County football players who signed letters of intent on Wednesday will still see each other.
Tervarus Ages and Kelcey Lewis will remain teammates after signing with Fort Valley State, while passing combo Patrick Taylor and Lamar Zanders will be conference opponents.
Taylor, the Trojans' quarterback, will head to West Georgia while receiver Zanders joins Valdosta State. Both are part of the Gulf South Conference. Zanders played a little defense back in high school, and may break out his defensive playbook at least once a year.
"When we play West Georgia, I'll consider it," Zanders said with a smile after the signing ceremony in front of about 75 friends, coaches and family members in the school's media center. "Yeah, they'll let me do it that one time."
Never miss a local story.
Ages is a recipient of the Greg Lloyd scholarship at FVSU, where the former Pittsburgh Steelers great played.
Wide receiver LeBrandon Johnson was the lone out-of-state signee. He will attend Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.
Peach County head coach Chad Campbell said four or five more Trojans are likely to sign in the coming weeks, and that a few former Trojans in the junior-college ranks are expected to sign today.
