Ohio-bound Wyatt lands scholarship, prom date

Each Collins Hill football player on the theater stage for National Signing Day on Wednesday afternoon had the same opportunity to speak to the audience and offer a round of thanks to those people in their lives.

Senior Justin Wyatt used his moment in the spotlight to accomplish something else.

The Ohio University signee's closing remark fired up the crowd.

"Serenity, will you go to prom with me?" Wyatt said.

After the applause died down, classmate Serenity Estes stood up and accepted the offer, prompting another cheer.

"It was a good time to do it," Wyatt said.

All in all, it was a great day for Wyatt, a standout on offense and defense for the Eagles the past three seasons.

"Justin not only left with a scholarship, he also got a date," Collins Hill head coach Kevin Reach joked.
