HEPHZIBAH — Hephzibah football coach John Bowen is focused on the schools that would be the best fit for his players, looking at places where early playing time is possible.

On Wednesday, three of his football players signed with schools, perhaps getting a chance to play right away.

That includes Wayne Wingrove, who could start as Idaho State’s center as a freshman. The Bengals are a Football Championship Subdivision team.

“I made the decision [Tuesday] night,” Wingrove said. “I liked the conference and I’ll get a chance to play.”

Terry Robinson, who grew up playing sports with Wingrove, signed with Furman. The quarterback ended his high school career with a school-record 4,249 passing yards.

Robinson’s brother, Gary, is a wide receiver at Furman.

Finally, Lavorius Beasley made his collegiate decision official as he signed with Dean College in Massachusetts.

“We got kids who do a good job in the classroom,” Bowen said. “We preach commitment and hard work, and what it means.”
