Signing Day: Big Week for Lakewood Athletics

Several high school athletes furthered their careers on national signing day. Here are a few.

Last Wednesday was the final day for high school athletes across the country to sign their letters of intent for fall sports, and several Lakewood athletes joined in on the action:

  • In a much-publicized reversal, senior offensive lineman Kyle Kalis officially committed to the University of Michigan over Ohio State University. Here's the initial story in USA Today from July.
  • Kalis' teammate Sam Grant, a tight end, committed to the University of Oklahoma Monday, according to ESPN.
  • Brandon Jackson, another Eagle offensive lineman, signed with West Virginia University, according to The Smoking Musket.
  • Overall, St. Edward had eight students sign on with Division I football programs, Max Preps reports.

Chelsea Kovach, a Lakewood graduate playing basketball for Hiram College. Overcoming strep throat, toncilitis and a mild concussion suffered during the first half of the season has really come on lately for the terriers. Regaining her starting position from last year as the shooting guard in the second half she is averaging 12 pts a game.
