Warner Robins linemen Jermaine Abron and Keon Seabrooks became the latest pair of Demons to move on to play football at the next level when they signed with Garden City Community College in Kansas on Wednesday morning.
Abron was recruited as both an offensive and defensive lineman, while Seabrooks will play defensive end.
“My goal is to go out there and put Warner Robins on the map,” Abron said. “We want to show them that these two kids from Warner Robins went out there, put in work and moved on to a four-year school.”
While Abron was a three-year starter, Seabrooks only played one season for the Demons while he got his academic affairs in order. He credits head coach Bryan Way with his success.
Never miss a local story.
“Coach Way stayed with me through all of it and he never gave up on me,” Seabrooks said. “You really don’t find too many coaches that won’t give up on players, and he’s one of those coaches. I’m thankful for everything he’s done for me.”
Due to his extra experience on the field, Abron is certainly the more polished of the two players at this time, but Seabrooks’ raw ability is something that college coaches covet.
“Without (Abron), we wouldn’t have been able to do some of the things we do offensively like pulling guys, and he’s going to be a very difficult guy to replace,” Way said. “Keon has a lot of ability and a big upside on him. He’s got the body type and the quickness that colleges are looking for.”
Both players were a key part of the Demons’ GHSA Region 2-AAAAA championship and run to the state quarterfinals this past season.
Way said he anticipates potentially three or four more players in the 2014 class will sign scholarships later this year.
