SUGARLAND - The next chapter in the book on the rise of Fort Bend Christian Academy football has been signed, sealed and delivered.
Power 5 Signees.
On Wednesday, Remington Strickland and David Kasemervisz signed their official National Letters of Intent, inking with Texas A&M and Stanford (Preferred Walk-On), respectively. This gives the program and school a pair of big-time Division I college signees with more to come.
"I couldn't be happier for them," Fort Bend Christian Academy coach Jordan Black said. "I'm proud for the school. Anytime you have multiple guys signing Division I letters of intent, people take notice. So, I think going forward people are going to take Fort Bend Christian Academy seriously."
FBCA Athletic Director Kelly Carroll added: "A school our size we usually don't get this recognition. But these young men have worked extremely hard and Coach [Jordan] Black has been there for them. So, two Power 5 players out of this program shows the growth of where we are going."
I had to ask, what's up with the Twitter handle @ELITEBT28?
"That is a family tradition," he said. "My parents always pushed us to be elite. There is no room for being mediocre. You have to be great at something."
Well, his parents were elite, but that was before Twitter. They have laid high expectations for their children.
Tony Thompson starred as a WR for Texas A&M from 1984-89.
