Bald Eagle Area seniors Kael Gardner and Blake Roberts will play Division I football at Saint Francis University. They signed their letters of intent on Feb. 6 during a ceremony at the high school. It was also National Signing Day. Gardner plans to pursue studies in environmental engineering; Roberts plans to study cyber security.
"The reason why I signed with Saint Francis was because the overall atmosphere was great when I went on tour -- the coaches were great (and) really nice, and I'm really excited to be playing D1 football," Roberts said.
When asked what it's like signing with the same college as a high school teammate, Gardner said: "It means everything. At first I didn't think we had a chance of playing with each other, and now it's going to be a blast."
