Wednesday was a big day at Cooper High School for a pair of Cougars.

Former football players Cordell Dorsey and William Coleman signed their national letters of intent.

Dorsey signed with the Baylor Bears, who he committed to back in his junior year.

It's been a very long year for the Cougars safety, and Dorsey is glad that he was able to finally to sign with the Bears and play in the Big 12.

Cordell Dorsey said "It's a blessing to have this day. I give all the glory to God to make this day happen. I didn't think this day would ever come and it came. So, it's tremendous. It's probably the biggest day I've had so far. I've been waiting to go to Baylor since January. The coaches are ready for me, the players are ready for me to get down there, and honestly me family is ready for me to get down there. So, ready to keep pushing forward, and just ready to go."

Defensive lineman William Coleman is headed to the next level to play college football.

Coleman signed his letter of intent to attend Lincoln University in Missouri.

He is looking forward to playing in college, and the school told him they have a place for him in their line up.

William Coleman said "It feels wonderful, and I know I have another chance to play again at the next level. They told me they could really use me. Sometimes there's downfalls in colleges and they look for students that can help, and they told me I could help."

Lincoln University is a NCAA Division II school in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
