National Signing Day is a happening at many high schools, and Rabun County High is no different. Football standouts Braxton Hicks, Sam Adams and Garrett Bragg cemented their college destinations Feb. 5 before dozens of friends, family, classmates and teammates.

Hicks will travel the shortest route, to the University of Georgia as a preferred walk-on. Adams will take his skills to the University of the Cumberlands, and Bragg will play at the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

For Rabun head coach Jaybo Shaw, the future collegians are leaving the program in a better place. On the field and in the school halls, the three, according to the coach, set an example for their successors. 

“I love all you guys, what you mean to me, our coaching staff and this whole program,” Shaw said. “You’ve got such a bright future ahead ... You’ll always be a part of the family, no matter what.”
