Legacy Christian Academy hosted a collegiate signing event for three of our senior student-athletes on May 5. Signing a National Letter of Intent represents a milestone for these players and their families as years of hard work and dedication lead to an opportunity to play their sport at the college level.
Gabe Collins | Emporia State University
Gabe Collins has committed to play basketball at Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. He started shooting hoops at the age of four and has not looked back. He played AAU basketball throughout high school. Coach Cole Johnson describes him as unflappable: “He is a dynamic player who is fun to watch. He is explosive on the court and can score from the perimeter, from the mid-range, and from the post.” During his final year of high school play, Gabe was named TAPPS First Team All-State, First Team All-District, and Offensive Player of the Year for the district. He ultimately landed at ESU after countless college visits because of their men’s basketball program and the campus as a whole was the right fit for him. He is most looking forward to facing off against ESU’s rival KU in Allen Fieldhouse.
Rohnan Mech | Millsaps College
Rohnan Mech has committed to play soccer at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. He has been knocking around a soccer ball his entire life but developed a true passion for it while in middle school when he joined his first select team. Over the years he has spent countless hours practicing and traveling the country for tournaments. Rohnan wrapped his soccer career at Legacy serving as captain, and the team went all the way to the state championship, for the first time ever. “Despite the challenges we faced over the last year,” Coach Monty Page shared, “Rohnan grew to be not only a strong defender but, more importantly, a great leader who leads his teammates with transparency and a servant’s heart.” Rohnan is eager to get to work with the team in Jackson that welcomed him with open arms and has a storied and successful men’s soccer program. He received over a dozen offers to play college soccer but is happy to plant his cleats on the field at Millsaps.
Trey Perdue | University of North Texas
Trey Perdue committed to play football at The University of North Texas in Denton. He first picked up the pigskin as a Kindergartener and has loved the game since his first practice. “Trey is gifted as an athlete, he has a strong work ethic, and he has a heart of a champion.” Coach Scott Smith continues, “He can play offense, defense, special teams, and he will never tap out. He is truly a great asset to any team.” His strong play and natural talent were evident even as a freshman when he joined the ranks of the varsity football team. In his senior year, Trey served the Legacy football program as captain. He was named TAPPS First Team All-District Running Back, 1st Team All-District Linebacker, 2nd Team All-State Running Back, Co district Defensive MVP, and Legacy’s team MVP. Trey is thrilled to play at UNT as a Division 1 school that is close to home.
