Surrounded by family, friends and fellow Cooper teammates, all were smiling ear to ear. Fred Lawrence told KTXS Sports, this has been a long time coming.
"It feels great to get this over with, I've been anxious for a couple weeks now. It feels good to sign the paper finally," Lawrence said.
Anthony Pierson spoke about playing in a familiar stadium.
"It wasn't my best game playing there at that stadium, but we had some good memories playing there. Won our last district game in high school there. I like the stadium, the facilities there are pretty nice there too," Pierson said.
He also spoke highly of the recruiting process with Angelo State, saying coaches there were eager to use him in their game plan.
"Being a receiver they pass the ball a lot, so I gotta be open. And I talked to the Offensive coordinator and he really likes my size and they would love to use me early and often."
