In a time when everything that happens outside your home, or on a college campus, or on an athletic field, is in flux, it’s time for some good news.
Congratulations to Sevien Martin, who becomes the 10th member of the 2019 Kowboys senior season class to sign a scholarship this fall when he filled out his grant-in-aid to Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire, a Division II program.
It’s a long trip, but he’ll have company. Kowboy teammates and defensive linemen Jacob Mckenney and Trey Varnado signed with the Ravens back in February.
It’s been stressful. They came in pretty late,” said Martin, who noted he was also contacted by Webber University in Lake Placid. Martin played tackle and a bit of center for Osceola, and said FPU projects him as a center or guard. “I’ll play wherever.”
Going up north with McKenney and and Varnado, a piece of the family, will help bridge the distance gap.
“It’s a brotherhood where we respect each other,” Martin said about coming out of the Kowboy program. “I’m excited to get there in August.”
Along with the Kowboy family, parents Sarah McKenney and Robert Martin, a member of Osceola 1998 Class 5A state championship team, celebrated the signing.
