GUNTER, Texas (KTEN) - A successful stretch for Gunter Tiger football continued on Monday. Linebacker Ashton Bennett and offensive lineman Ryan Cassidy signed to play for coach Bo Atterberry at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

"Coach Atterberry was awesome, he really made it feel like home," said Bennett. 

Phoenix Grant also signed with Yale at Gunter after a tremendous career at Sherman. Grant's father is an assistant coach on the Gunter football staff.

When you think of Ivy league schools, you know academics will be as important as what happens on the field.

"Growing up I was held to a high standard, to keep my grades high and also keeping athletics as a priority as well," said Grant.
