Dallas Desonie, Staff Writer

The Conway Wampus Cat football program held its annual National Signing Day Ceremony in the football fieldhouse on Monday.

Three Wampus Cats signed with college football programs this year. Running Back Boogie Carr and Linebacker Wade Simpson are both signing to play for Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, while Tackle Aaron Smith is accepting a preferred walk-on offer to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

Senior Boogie Carr says he dosen’t take the opportunity to continue his football career for granted. “I am just really blessed and humbled to be in this position because a lot of kids don’t get this opportunity and I just want to take full advantage of it. Ouachita is an amazing school with an amazing football program and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me there.”

These three seniors have given Wampus Cat fans countless memories over the last three years, and while they continue their football career elsewhere, they will always be Wampus Cats.
