STURGIS -— Sturgis Brown High School senior Cedrick Stabber recently signed a letter of intent to play football at Chardon State University.
“Chadron State reached out to me in the recruiting process. This was my first year playing football in high school and I really had a lot of fun. I know a lot of people in Chadron, including Coach (Jay) Long, so that is why I chose Chadron,” Stabber said.
Stabber said it looks like he will be on special teams to start, kick return, punt return, and wide receiver on offense.
“There were a few other schools I looked at, Black Hills State University, Dakota State, Mount Marty, but those schools were for basketball and I really wanted to play football in college, so Chadron was my preference,” Stabber said.
Stabber is planning to major in athletic training, in part due to mentoring by Sage Robinson Miller at the high school.
“Ceddrick proved last season he was a rare talent on the field, and there haven’t been too many players that have come through our program with the competitive fire he brought on Friday nights,” said Chris Koletzky, Sturgis Brown’s head football coach. “It is great to see him go to a program that as a coach I know he will be taken care of.”
