POTTSBORO, Texas (KTEN)- And that's where two Cardinal football stars are going to be staying in state to rack up more yardage.

Running back Major McBride is going to look to boost the Texas A&M Commerce ground game after a 48-touchdown season in 2023 while receiver Cameron Saunders is headed out east to Marshall to play at East Texas Baptist University.

And both are looking forward to taking that next step in their football careers.

"It feels great, but I know it's only going to get harder from here. I know I'm going to work harder than I have before, so I'm ready for it," McBride said.

"Words can't describe how excited I am," Saunders said. "The past four years, it's always be fun and my parents and coaches have always helped me."
