Three Augusta Prep student-athletes signed to play Division I football on Tuesday.
Palmer Bachelder signed with UCF, Hinson Fowler is heading to Georgia Tech and James Garnett will play at Wofford. All three earned preferred walk-on spots to their respective schools.
“It’s just beyond reality honestly,” Bachelder said. “Growing up you always dream of this. You never really [think] it will happen, but once you put in the hard work it all falls into place.”
“It’s just a great opportunity,” Fowler said. “It’s a Division I school [in the] ACC. I’ll have the opportunity to play. I’m going to prove myself, so I’m excited.”
“It’s very special to me,” Garnett said. “Woffrod has been one of my dream schools for as long as I can remember, and to come out here and sign in front of the people and family who have supported me, it’s just really special and humbling.”
