Lighthouse standout football player signs with Dordt College

TWIN FALLS, Idaho ( KMVT / KSVT ) A Lighthouse standout athlete will follow in his brother's footsteps. Connor Bosma signed his National Letter of Intent to play football at Dordt College.

He chose the NAIA school in Iowa over Whitworth in Washington state.

The 6'1" senior quarterback's favorite memory was winning the 1A D-II state championship in 2014 over Wilder, culminating a perfect 12-0 season.

Bosma played quarterback for the Lions and on defense did it all. Dordt expects him to play safety.

"I just like the campus and the coaches, they were really welcoming. The academics were great, they have great options have everything I'm looking for," explained Bosma.

"That size and speed and strength, they can do all sorts of things with him. I'm looking forward to him fitting right in there. They know what they're getting. A senior with that kind of speed and size already, they're excited what they can do with him too. There's no one out there with a better work ethic than Connor that I've coached. His work ethic is crazy, you don't have to ask someone to get him into the gym or lifting weights, he was already there," added Lighthouse head football coach Cory Holloway.

Lighthouse suffered a tremendous amount of injuries last year and didn't boast a traditional Lions season. Look for them on the mend next fall.
