The Park Hill High School football program enjoyed one of the Kansas City area’s best turnarounds in 2014. A year after winning only three games, the Trojans opened the season on a 12-game winning streak and reached the Missouri Class 5 semifinals, before falling to Nixa.
The senior class credited with revitalizing the program saved one last achievement for Wednesday — a record-setting National Signing Day.
A school-record 10 seniors signed to play college football Wednesday. That group featured Carter Anchors (Pittsburg State), Jeremiah Benson (William Penn), Jamaal Brazil (Northwest Missouri State), Clayton Cole (Quincy), Anthony Enriquez (Northwest Missouri State), Kenyatte Harris (Washburn), Jordan Lashbrook (Quincy), Austin Reiter (Quincy), David Taylor (Baker) and Ryan Truvillion (Southeast Missouri State).
“There were a lot of childhood dreams that came to reality today,” Park Hill coach Josh Hood said. “Having 10 players sign today is a testament to where this program is today.”
