BONHAM, Texas (KTEN)- It was a celebratory morning at Bonham High School Tuesday as three Purple Warrior athletes signed their letters of intent to continue their playing careers at the collegiate level.

Athletic Director John Ramsey said it's the most athletes he's had sign at a single time in his nine years at the school.

Two of Ramsey's football players were among the signees. Demarcus Brown is headed to some cooler weather in Iowa to play at William Penn while Angel Esquivel will take the field at Goodyear Prep in Arizona.

Completing the trio was star shortstop Braeden Stewart. He's headed to NAIA school Kansas Wesleyan.

And hearing from all three, these Purple Warriors are all excited to get to battle at their new homes.

Angel Esquivel - Goodyear Prep football

"I'm excited about going there with a former teammate, and I'm ready to further my athletic and academic career," Esquivel said.

DeMarcus Brown - William Penn University football

"I committed to a different school, but I flipped my commitment because William Penn seemed a whole lot better for me," Brown said. "Better situation, better weather, everything."

Braeden Stewart - Kansas Wesleyan Baseball

"I DM'd the assistant coach on Twitter," Stewart said. "He texted me back and said his shortstop was graduating and he needed someone to be that guy for him, and I told him I could be that guy. I just love the school, so I'm happy to be going there."
