Not one, or two but three South Walton Seahawks will be taking their game to the next level.

Before an auditorium filled with players, coaches and family, Seahawks Tanner Kotowske, Bradley Robinson and Daniel Leuze signed to play football Wednesday afternoon at South Walton High School.

Kotowske and Robinson will be going to play for Maryville College in Maryville, Tennessee, a Division III athletic program, while Leuze is headed off to Birmingham, Alabama to play for the Samford Bulldogs, a Division I team.

South Walton Coach Phil Tisa had glowing remarks for the three young men.

“They’re great students and hard workers,” he said. “I’m very proud that all three of them are four-year members of the football program as well. They are just a good group of kids to be around.”

Kotowske, 5-foot-8, played corner and wide receiver for the Seahawks, while Leuze, 5-foot-8, played running back and middle linebacker. Robinson, 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, played guard and on the defensive line.
