The Saline Athletic Department will be celebrating the National Signing Day this  Wednesday.  At 1:30 p.m. at least two players for our 2012 football team will sign letters of intent. 

Two of the players that have verbally committed are:

Casey Schukow – Defensive Lineman
Hillsdale College
Casey is a throwback type of football player; a blue collar work ethic and humility have served him well in his development as a football player and as a young man.  Casey was a First Team All SEC and Ann Arbor.com Dream Team selection in 2012.

Tyler Palka – Quarterback
Saginaw Valley State University
Tyler is a versatile athlete with confidence, competitiveness and mental toughness.  He took over as the signal caller for the Hornets this year and led them to a 10-2 record.  Tyler was a First Team All SEC Selection in 2012.  He was also named player of the year by both Ann Arbor.com and Heritage Newspaper.  He was recently named to the MHSFCA East-West All Star Game.

“Casey and Tyler epitomize what Saline Football strives to achieve.  They are both examples of leaders on the field and in our community.  They have always been humble and realize that the success of our team and the help of their teammates have put them in the position that they are in today.”  - Coach Joe Palka

*** Update – Joey Zakrajsek has given his verbal commitment to Olivet Nazarene.

***Update – Caleb Ashby has given his Verbal commitment to Wheaton College.

Help us congratulate both Casey, Tyler, Caleb and Joey!  Way to go Hornets!
