Coach Charlie Oldman was thankful for everyone in attendance. Consualo is his second athlete to sign with a college since he became a coach four years ago.

With everything going on he is glad something positive can come of it and show the next generation that they can accomplish things, he noted.

“I’m happy for her. I know she’ll do good with her studies and on the field. She’s got a bright future ahead of her. As a coach, I’m very proud.”
