Two more of the senior stars of Beaufort High School’s state championship football team made their plans to continue their careers at the next level official Wednesday.
Breakout star running back Kacy Fields signed a national letter-of-intent to attend South Carolina State, one of only a handful of schools who jumped on the workhorse back after a position change vaulted him into the spotlight as a senior. Fields moved from wide receiver to the backfield three games into his senior season and proceeded to roll up more than 2,200 rushing yards and 32 touchdowns in 10 games as the primary ball carrier.
Perhaps better known for his prowess on the basketball court, Michael Dennison was one of the unsung heroes of the championship football squad as a lead-blocking tight end/H-back and a hard-hitting tackler in spot duty on defense. He’s also a standout in the classroom and will continue his football career while studying at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Fellow Eagles senior Colton Phares signed with Appalachian State during the early signing period in December.
