February 2—The Vidalia High School Football team was well represented Wednesday on National Signing Day with three Indians inking letters of intent to play football at the next level. Linebacker Nate McBride, Offensive Tackle Sam Collins and Linebacker Lakia Henry all made it official on Wednesday before a large crowd of family, friends, teammates and classmates all inside the VHS Media Center.

Army All-American Nate McBride signed his letter of intent to play at the next level for the next four years at the University of Georgia.

“I am blessed by God and thankful and ready to get to Athens and prove I am not a track runner playing football, I am a football player that runs track. My decision to go to Georgia came down to my great relationship with the coaches and players. It is great to know that you know the guys going in. I am not even there yet and I feel like part of the family.” McBride said.

“This is going to start a new chapter in his life and my life. I am glad it is all said and done with the papers signed, sealed and delivered.” VHS Coach Jason McBride said.

All-State Offensive Tackle Sam Collins will play for Kennesaw State for the next four years. Collins who is 6’ 3” and 285 2 1 17 VHS Players and Coaches Signing Daypounds had offers from twelve other schools

Collins said, “I am going to Kennesaw State because of the relationship that I have built over time with the coaches. The campus is really nice and they have a great atmosphere on game day. My family and Coach Chomskis also helped me with my decision.”

“He has done real well with the whole thing. I gave him some guidance but he made the decision on his own. Once he committed to Kennesaw he called all the other schools and told them of his decision. He was upfront the whole way through.” Kevin Collins said.

Lakia Henry who led the Indians in rushing will play linebacker at Dodge City Community College for the next two years.

“I liked the way the coaches and players treated me when I visited Dodge City. It was real and I liked it there.” Henry said.

“It is an amazing feeling to know that you have raised a kid that has the drive and the ambition to do what he set out to do since grade school. It is a blessing.” Senora Henry said.

VHS Indians Head Coach Lee Chomskis said, “It is a big day for Vidalia High School and a great day for our community and certainly for the families. When you look at the end result of all of it I hope we see them all graduating from college. This is a great accomplishment from high school they are getting an opportunity to go play, but they have to go and do the work, stay and finish. I am excited that the door is open for them now it is up to them to finish the job.
