Three Colonels celebrate next step to Averett University
Roanoke Va. – There was a family celebration for trio of Colonels at Countryside Sports Complex. Two Colonel football players and a girls basketball player are all headed to Averett University to continue their careers. She’s a three point sharpshooter at guard who was a big contributor for the Colonels perennial playoff teams. And teammate Nick Andrews is another wide receiver and defensive back who was a starter his senior season. All three are headed to Averett, and all three are good examples of hard work paying off.
