GMC JC Football scores big on National Signing Day

GMC JC Football scores big on National Signing Day

The Georgia Military College JC Football Program had an outstanding National Signing Day, getting 34 young student athletes to make the decision to come to Georgia Military College to start their collegiate athletic and academic careers.  The class was comprised of 19 players from Georgia, 8 from South Carolina, 4 from Florida, 2 from Alabama, and 1 from North Carolina. "We were very excited with the guys who got on board with us today.  We lost only one player we expected to sign today but got three others we were not sure about. A very successful day that answered basically every need we had for the class.  We do still have some holes to fill, but this was an absolutely outstanding start. A tremendous job buy our coaches," commented GMC JC Head Coach and Athletic Director Bert Williams.

GMC went 8-2 last year and finished with another Top 20 ranking, but the sights are set higher for 2018.  After signing out 23 to date on National Signing Day and the early signing period, the Bulldogs had numerous positions that needed help. "We return some very dynamic guys on both sides of the ball, but we also need a lot of help in certain areas.  We made great progress today and boy did we need it with the schedule we will be taking on next year."

Success on the field is nothing new to Coach Williams and the GMC Bulldogs, but many don't realize the consistent success GMC has in getting its players out to 4yr colleges and universities.  "Selling student athletes on Georgia Military isn't a tough sell.  We were very excited about the recent news of our #1 state and #14 national ranking by TheBestSchools.org but to be honest, we have had great results for many years. The secret is finally getting out.  We have sent over 550 young men out to four year programs of all levels - in football alone – all of our programs do great work, and I am excited to see the academic strength of our school recognized."
