The Redhawks Football program had a successful signing day Wednesday, during the Football Early Signing Period. The Redhawks added 16 total student-athletes to the program, including some highly recruited prospects and addressing a couple areas of need.
The largest position group of signees was offensive line. The Redhawks added seven offensive linemen in the early signing period, including five junior college transfers who will enroll next semester and participate in Spring drills. One local athlete also signed to join the Redhawks: Charleston running back Q’nairies Anderson.
The SEMO Football coaching staff will resume recruiting after the holidays, and announce additional signees on traditional signing day, Wednesday, Feb. 6.
Meanwhile, the national awards have continued to come in for Redhawk Football student-athletes, additional icing on an historic season.
Linebacker Zach Hall, offensive tackle Drew Forbes, and running back Marquis Terry earned STATS FCS All-American honors. Hall and Forbes also earned Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America Team honors – the first time in school history that two athletes have been on the Walter Camp team. And junior quarterback Daniel Santacaterina was voted by fans across the country as the HERO Sports FCS Newcomer of the Year.
And even more prestigious recognition, junior linebacker Zach Hall was one of just 11 student-athletes in the nation to receive All-America team recognition from the FCS Athletic Directors Association as the top player in the country at his position.
