Minico pair taking talents to Idaho State University
National signing day continues with two Minico Spartans heading to a division one program together. KMVT’s Morgan Rumpf was at the signing.
Colter May and Mason Harwood are leaving Rupert and heading east to Pocatello, to play football at Idaho State University.
"Giving us an opportunity to keep watching them play football, what a special day and that's what it's all about," said Minico Head Coach Keelan McCaffrey.
Colter and Mason have been teammates for most of their lives.
"We’ve been playing football together since flag football, and we've always been playing together and it's always been really fun and I'm just happy we can keep this journey going, and going to play at the next level. It's just unbelievable really, I'm just ecstatic!" explained Mason
Becoming a Bengal means something extra special to Minico first year head coach Keelan McCaffrey.
"I think it was exciting, you know especially to have two guys going back to where I came from is a great deal, McMaffrey said. “They're two great kids, they've been great for our football program, school and community."
“He told me he would be happy no matter where I went, and I told him I just want to play college football, and he said he would respect my decision either way. Then when I told him I wanted to become a Bengal he was even more excited,” Colter explained.
“He definitely wanted me to be a Bengal!” shared Mason. “He was just telling me you're going to be a Bengal it's a great fit for you, and he's obviously not wrong. He influenced me a lot but at the end of the day it was my decision and I'm just happy I get to follow in my caches footsteps.”
Before heading to Pocatello, Colter will serve a two year mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Mason plans to red shirt his first year to gain more experience and hit the weight room.
