Lancaster sending more DBs to college ranks

Lancaster is becoming a popular recruiting site for college football programs looking for help in the defensive secondary.

Four Lancaster senior defensive backs signed Division I letters of intent on signing day and three of those were with Big 12 schools:

* Free safety Quentin Hayes, Oklahoma.

* Cornerback Tyler Stephenson, Baylor

* Cornerback Matthew Thomas, Iowa State

A fourth defensive back, Kendall Hayes, chose Louisiana Tech.

This comes on the heels of the 2009 Lancaster class which included defensive back Demontre Hurst (Oklahoma).

Lancaster enjoyed a big signing day Wednesday with nine football and two track and field scholarships finalized.

Kenneth Penny, Athlete, Nevada-Las Vegas
