Osceola County student athletes continue to forge their path to an athletic career in college by signing scholarships.
The most unique of a recent group of signees is Harmony’s Taitiyana Taylor, who has signed a grant to attend Warner University just down the road in Lake Placid to play flag football, which is being added as a collegiate sport by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in 2021. The NAIA said in a release in May that it plans to partner with the NFL to start the first women’s college flag football season in the spring of 2021.
Taylor is the first collegiate signee in flag for Harmony, which has had a legacy of great flag football players over the years. Taylor has also played basketball and ran track.
Congratulations are also in order for St. Cloud boys volleyball player Tyler Souza, who is headed to Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C.
And, Tohopekaliga High soccer player Adonis Vega, who the school said has signed a scholarship to attend school and play soccer in his native Spain. He becomes the second Tigers soccer player to move on to the college level.
