Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School held a signing for kicker James Sherman on Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Sherman signed his National Letter of Intent to play football with the Texas State Bobcats in the Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School Library at 2:40p.m. MCPS principal, Chad Barwick opened the event in prayer. Montgomery Catholic President Anne Ceasar addressed guests and the Sherman family, thanking them for their service to the Montgomery Catholic community and their school spirit. Montgomery Catholic Football Coach Gregg Baker spoke about leadership, work ethic and skill James brought to the team.
Sherman’s mother, Diane was next at the podium and read quotes to James from several of his coaches and mentors that were unable to attend the ceremony, including Coach Mike McCabe of One-on-One Kicking Academy, where James was named the Class of 2014 number one kicking recruit. James was introduced by Athletic Director Travis Jarome. Sherman spoke directly to his mother and father, Diane and Craig Sherman of Montgomery, thanking them for all of their support through his athletic career. He thanked his school, friends and all of his coaches for helping him reach his goal of playing college football.
Sherman, a student at Montgomery Catholic since kindergarten is a member of the National Honor Society and was honored to be selected to play in the High School Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game in December at Cramton Bowl, the first Montgomery Catholic player to do so. Texas State is very fortunate to be receiving this hard working young man, and MCPS looks forward to following his college successes over the next four years.
