As he reflected upon one of his former players, Bo talked about his future players in yesterday's signing day press conference...

All over the country coaches and players celebrated signing college scholarships....

As we mentioned last night on News 5 at six, 9 Grand Island Islander athletes signed scholarships in various sports with several different schools.

The Islander football team after their state semi–final run this past season had five guys sign scholarships. Coach Jeff Tomlin hopes more of his former players will have the opportunity to play college ball.

Defensive lineman Grady Gardner singed with Concordia and isn't surprised some teammates have signed.

Yes, our team is so talanete this year and we have so many more than just us five so its awesome, I thought there was going to be more than us five but just the choices some people make their college but we have the talent to probably have 10 plus go to college.

Grady and The Islanders fell just short of competing in the Class A Championship game.

The finished the season 10–2 with that semi–final loss to Omaha North 39–34 in a game that went right to the wire.
