Bishop TK Gorman sends 7 more athletes to college

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -   Bishop TK Gorman celebrated another full signing class.  Seven athletes from four different sports are headed to college.  After just two years of track and field, MaKayla Prevost has signed with the two time defending national champs at Texas A&M.

"I was hoping that maybe I would get in a Division 3 school for college in soccer," said Prevost.  "But Division 1, Texas A&M, national champions, running the 100, is an amazing feeling and I can't even describe it."

Jordan Vander Vorste had a stroke last May.  He says he was close to death and was never expected to play football again.  Vander Vorste proved everyone wrong, suiting up for football and baseball season.  Now he'll play football at Mississippi College.

"I'm 100 percent now," said Vander Vorste.  "A little bit lighter in weight though. I lost about 20 pounds sitting in the hospital bed, but making it back stronger everyday. It actually just seems like yesterday I was laying in bed and couldn't move the left side of my body. It's just amazing."
