Martinez, Ga--A big day of college signings at Lakeside. Their last group for the school year just happens to be their biggest and it covers a wide ranging of sports.

Six athletes signing letters of intent to play basketball, football, softball, baseball, and even archery. Yes, that is a collegiate sport. For Jay Waters and Zach Wade they're off to Washington DC and Gallaudet University, a school for the deaf and hard of hearing. They're excited about the opportunity in front of them.

"I knew it would happen. My parents came in and helped me and my coaches. I thank coach Hibbitts for helping me and I'm just excited, very excited" said Zach Wade

"It's a good college and I wanted to be surrounded by people like me too" said Jay Waters

Allie Penn inked with Union College for archery, Jada Andrews for basketball at Methodist Univeristy, John D'Amelio is going to Berry for baseball and Tucker Gilbert will play basketball in the Peach Belt at Georgia College.
