While the senior class is not large, it is talent – with Sincere Hankerson (DE, 6-2, 203 - 2.6 GPA), Trent Hankerson (Athlete, -5-5, 140 – 2.9 GPA), Nathaniel Smith (OL – 3.162 GPA), Jontez Williams (WR/DB, 6-1, 185 – 2.7 GPA) and talented two-way (RB/LB) standout Isaiah Wilcox (5-10, 170 – 2.5 GPA).
