Hartselle students receive offers to play college football

Receiving an offer from a college football program can be exciting for a player, his coaches and his family. An offer can be life changing for the player, as it is a chance to continue his football career as well as get an education.

During the school year, players are able to get noticed because of their performance on the field during games. During summer, however, players are able to gain even more exposure through their performance while attending college camps.

Hartselle’s Jackson Boyer and Zane Stinson have recently picked up offers to play college football after their high school careers have finished.

Boyer has received D1 offers from Army and Navy as well as an offer from the Ivy League school Cornell University. Stinson’s offer comes from Centre College.

These are the first offers for players at Hartselle High School this year.

“Receiving an offer to play football after high school was something I never really thought about until last year, and now to receive offers from such prestigious academies is unreal to me,” said Boyer. “Playing football is big for me, but getting a great education has always been my No. 1 priority. Whether it’s Ivy League or one of the academies, I believe I’ll be able to achieve that education.”

Boyer said the main thing that has stood out to him throughout the recruiting process is “the importance of attending summer exposure camps,” Boyer said. “Without attending those this summer, I firmly believe I would not have any offers right now. Cornell had not contacted me at all before a Vanderbilt camp and then offered me based off of my performance at the camp.”

Boyer’s advice for any recruit wanting to play at the next level is to begin attending camps at a young age.

He is looking at his offers in the same light and is weighing his options until it comes time to make a decision.

Boyer plays outside linebacker/defensive end for the Tigers. Navy and Cornell are recruiting him as a buck linebacker, which is an LB/fourth defensive line position, while Army is recruiting him as a defensive end.

Stinson

“I love receiving an offer from Centre, and I am blessed to play this beautiful sport. I can’t wait to play at the next level at whatever college I decide to go to,” said Stinson.

Stinson has camped at Middle Tennessee State, Memphis and Harding and will be attending north Alabama’s camp later this month.

He will be playing left tackle this season for the Tigers. Centre is recruiting him to play center/tackle.
