Coming from different parts of the country, these five young men have committed to attend Greenville and join the EMAP family this fall!
Name: Riley Russell
Hometown: Mt. Pleasant, TX
High School: Rivercrest ISD
Position: Defensive Line
Major: Physical Education
Why Did He Choose Greenville: I chose this school for their good football program and Christian values.
Coach Cox: Riley is the type of football player every coach loves to coach. He is hardworking in the weight room and on the football field. Riley is the type of football player that will rarely if ever be outworked and the longer he is in a program the better football player he will be. Riley loves every aspect of football and it is evident with his incredible work ethic. You will find it hard to find someone who has anything negative to say about Riley. We are very excited to see Riley’s development over the next four years as a Greenville Panther.
Name: Miguel Martinez
Hometown: Berryville, Arkansas
High School: Berryville High School
Position: Left tackle
Major: History and Political Science
Why did He Choose Greenville: Well right off the bat I knew it was for me. It wasn't big it wasn't small just the perfect fit! Also the academics are great and the type of environment the college carries was a plus. I'm glad I have the privilege to be a part of the Panther football team this fall!!
Coach Cox: We are very excited to welcome Miguel to our Panther Family. Miguel has great size and speed but it is his aggressive nature that makes him a dominant force on the offensive line. Miguel is another guy that loves football and has a passion to excel. Miguel will be a great asset to the Panther program for the next four years and we are excited to see him develop.
Name: Derrick Dunn
Hometown: Greenville, IL
High School: Greenville High School
Awards/Honors: All-Conference LB senior year
Why did he Choose Greenville: I chose Greenville because they are giving me the opportunity to continue my football career all while going to school to obtain my degree in Agribusiness.
Coach Schomaker: Derrick was a kid that we recruited out of high school because of his athleticism at the Linebacker position. He’s a local kid that comes from a great family and will add much needed experience and maturity to our linebacker corps.
Name: Jarin Donaldson
Hometown: Colorado Springs, CO
High School: Mesa Ridge High School
Position: Wide Receiver & Corner Back
Awards/Honors: 1st Team All Conference, Offensive Player of the Year, All Area
Why did He Choose Greenville: I picked Greenville because I feel like the school and community will help me grow as a young man and help me reach my full potential. Also because the Coaching staff really made me feel welcome.
Coach Flannery- Jarin is the type of skill player we are looking at the corner back position. He is very quick and explosive on his feet, and can also make plays on the ball when in the air. He will add great depth and athleticism to that position group. Another thing that excites us about Jarin is his desire to grow as a young man both on and off the football field. Those are the types of guys we want.
Name: Steven Oscar
Hometown: Sebastian, FL
High School: Sebastian River High School
Why did he choose Greenville: I chose Greenville because I felt very wanted and needed. Consequently without God I wouldn't be at this position, so I'm very blessed and thankful for this opportunity. From time to time, the Coaches kept me in touch almost every week, which intrigued me even more about being here. This school also seems like a great place to earn an education as well. I’m excited and overwhelmed to join the panther family!
Coach Schoepf: I am excited to have Steven join us this fall! His desire to play college football and get an education has been evident from the start. Along with that, Steven’s desire to be at a Christian school really stood out. I cannot wait to see Steven in the orange and black this fall!
