Add One More to the List

Colleague Alan Goldenbach passes this one along: Gaithersburg Coach Kreg Kephart reports that senior linebacker Serge Kona has signed with Duquesne. Kona, a 5-11, 215-pounder, was a three-year varsity player for the Trojans, and an all-county kick returner last season. Kona is the 53rd player to sign a football scholarship...
