Chris Moore, Tristian Turner and Michael Robertson will play football at the collegiate level.
The three Victory Christian athletes signed letters of intent Tuesday during a signing ceremony at the school's chapel.
Moore, a 5-foot-11 running back/linebacker, will attend Brevard College in North Carolina, a Division II program. Turner, a 6-foot-3, 384 pound lineman who got his size from his dad – he's actually taller than him – will head to Concordia University in Alabama.
Robertson, a 6-foot-1, 248 pound lineman, will go to Ave Maria University, a school about three hours from Lakeland. Moore will most likely play at the linebacker spot, but says he also wants to compete for some time at running back.
"They said I can if I exhibit the same things I did in high school I can play there," Moore said.
Robertson will most likely play on the defensive side of the ball at Ave Maria. He said he chose the university because of the laid-back atmosphere.
"It also reminded me of Victory a little bit," Roberston said.
"The class sizes are small and everyone knows your name."
Turner, who will also play basketball and compete in the shot put at Concordia, will play on the defensive line, he said. He wants to major in business and minor in criminal justice, most likely to follow in his father's footsteps. Turner's father recently retired as an office for the department of corrections.
"He was real tough on me," Turner said. "Always made sure I kept my grades up so I was able to play football."
