Frank, who will be attending the Air Force Academy, and Fant who Will be attending Indiana University will be taking the next step in their athletic career and head football coach Mike Earwood couldn’t be happier. “It’s a big day for Mercy, I’m very proud for these two young men,” said Earwood.
Frank will play offensive guard at the Airforce and was pleased to see all his effort on the football field come to fruition.
“I felt like all the hard work I put in for football finally paid off, It was a really cool experience,” said Frank
For Fant, the choice was about having the best opportunity to help build the Hoosiers program. Fant is a versatile player and will play corner and kickoff returner.
“My relationship with the coaches and other commits really made me feel comfortable,” said Fant, who runs a 4.3 40 time. “I want to leave a legacy and change the program.”
