Two Riverbend players pick Division I schools
Just got word from Riverbend Coach Todd Campbell that a pair of Bears have verbally committed to play Division I football next season.
Kirkland Nelms, who's the son of former Redskin Mike Nelms, will be heading to U-Mass, while Jesse McNeal will be playing for William & Mary.
A jack of all trades, Nelms had 19 catches for 320 yards and three touchdowns while also carrying 60 times for 436 yards and another seven scores. On defense, Nelms posted 40 tackles, 11 pass break-ups and six interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. Nelms also had a pair of returns for touchdowns, giving him 14 total -- scored four different ways.
McNeal, the Bears' top running threat, carried 109 times for 673 yards and four touchdowns. He also had 47 tackles, four pass break-ups and three interceptions as a defensive back.
In Campbell's first season at Riverbend, the Bears went 8-3 this fall but fell to Osbourn Park in the Northwest Region Division 6 quarterfinals.
National Signing Day is Feb. 3.
