NEW CASTLE —
Five New Castle High School seniors shared the spotlight Thursday morning during a special college football signing day celebration.
Jake McPhatter (Ball State University), Malik Hooker (Ohio State University), Julian Cox (Albany University), Stew Allen (Duquesne University) and Drew Allen (Robert Morris University) were cheered by family, friends, teammates and the school’s other varsity and junior varsity athletes in the auditorium.
The event, originally scheduled for yesterday’s National Signing Day, was delayed one day by winter’s latest blast, which closed the school.
Reporter David Burcham and photographer Tiffany Wolfe were on hand for the big event and will have complete details in Friday’s edition of the New Castle News.
