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.
