GILMER, Texas (KLTV) - National Signing Day was hampered by Mother Nature for many East Texas schools who began rescheduling the signings, but Gilmer’s student athletes signed the dotted line, regardless of the weather.

Five Gilmer student-athletes have signed up to play college football.

  • Omero Orona, Texas College
  • Javerian Martin, Texas College
  • Seth Jordan, ETBU
  • Ashton Haynes, TJC

Asthon Haynes’ father, Brandish Haynes, is proud that his son will play at TJC.

“Since he was a youngster his vision has been his best attribute. He’s tough, he runs hard, he got good speed. got good size, he runs like he’s...he’s probably 185 pounds 189 pounds. run like he 250. We’re going to bring the same tenacity to Tyler that we played with at Gilmer. and we’re going to try to turn it up a notch”

Ashton is looking forward to big things at TJC.

“I plan to do great things at TJC and I’m happy to have the other coaches around to help me,” he said.
