COLUMBIA CITY â€” Stand-out Columbia City running back Adam Neely officially signed with the University of Saint Francis this week.
Neely was the Eaglesâ€™ running back and punter in the 2012 season, and despite breaking his leg in the second game of the season, Neely finished the year with a strong performance.
â€śHis warrior spirit in coming back from a seemingly season-ending injury lifted up the entire team as he carried us to a victory in the sectional,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Randy Hudgins said.
Hudgins said Neely is a versitle player who could fill many roles for the Cougars next season.
Neely plans to study business at USF.
Neelyâ€™s commitment is the second college decision for Columbia Cityâ€™s football team this season, as teammate Jared Murphy signed his national letter of intent to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in February.
â€śSaint Francis is getting a great young man with a passion for life and the game of football,â€ť Hudgins said.View more articles in:
