Morgan Academy defensive-offensive lineman Ethan Cargill won’t travel  far to extend his football career.

Cargill signed a football scholarship to play for Huntingdon College Tuesday at Morgan Academy Basketball Gymnasium.

Huntingdon College is a NCAA Division III based in Montgomery.

“Getting a chance to play college football will be a great experience for me,” Cargill said. “It’ll be an honor to play college football.”

Morgan Academy head football coach/Athletic Director Josh Thacker and Morgan Academy headmaster Mark Knight both praised Cargill for playing his senior year through injuries and never complaining.

A two-time member of The Selma Times-Journal’s All Dallas County football team, Cargill said it was an honor playing for the Senators’ football and basketball teams.

“Morgan Academy has a great family atmosphere,” Cargill said. “I enjoyed my teammates and coaches here.”

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Cargill received a $5,000 scholarship from the Selma Quarterback Club in November.

Cargill also earned a spot on the AISA All-Star football team.
