Three Griffins sign with colleges

Three St. John Vianney High School seniors — Percy Mitchell, Nate Thurman and Lane Allison — all signed on Wednesday morning to play college football next year. Mitchell and Thurman were honored at a Signing Day ceremony in the Media Center. (Allison was unable to attend.)

Mitchell, a first-team All-Metro running back, signed to play at Washburn University. Thurman, a defensive end, signed to play at Southern Illinois University. Allison, a linebacker, signed with Robert Morris University.

With Kyren Williams (Notre Dame) signing in December, there are now four members of the 2018 state championship football team who will be playing in college next season.
