Aledo ushered five of its athletes on to the next level on Wednesday with a National Signing Day ceremony held at the indoor practice facility at Aledo High School.
Athletic Director Tim Buchanan presided over the ceremony, as Bearcat soccer and football student-athletes were the feature of the day.
Willie Gibson, a wideout for Aledo will attend and play football at Tyler Jr. College. The other football signee, quarterback and future U. S. Airman Pate Davis, will attend the Air Force Academy in Colorado.
Aledo is also sending three soccer players to the next level. Lexi Barton will extend her soccer career at Washburn University. Bailey Scott will join the Rajin’ Cajuns’ womens soccer team at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. And Willie Maloney looks to spend the next few years working toward his degree while playing soccer for Austin College.
