Darius Ragland how was your 2019 season?
My season went pretty well for my first year at quarterback. I had to make the transfer from defensive back to quarterback and I ran with it. I was all conference and all state honorable mention this year at QB. We didn’t get too far in the playoffs but it was still a great experience and gave me motivation for next year. We also won conference champs for the first time in 28 years.
What does football mean to you?
Football means a lot to me. It’s something I love. It Also keeps me motivated in school and being upstanding in the community.
What schools have you talked to so far?
I have talked to coaches form Valparaiso, Purdue , Tennessee State, and SIU. Those are the main ones.
