It was a day of celebration for Mobile Christian running back Tyler Rogers. Exactly one month after National Signing Day – Rogers signed with West Alabama.
“It was very exciting; I’ve been waiting for it. I’m glad I got the chance to play at the next level – it’s just been very exciting,” said Rogers.
I asked Tyler how significant it would be to play as a freshman.
“It would be very important. It would basically be the same thing as I made am impact my sophomore year when I didn’t play much my freshman year. It would be nice to come out there and make a big impact,” said Rogers.
Former Mobile Christian Head Coach, Neil Evans said, he’s very excited for Rogers’ opportunity.
“I think West Alabama is a great fit for him, he fits well into what they do offensively and I think a lot of the decision came down to proximity and his parents being able to watch him play,” said Evans.
In addition to Rogers’ signing today, it was announced that Evans will step down as head coach of the leopards – to move closer to his family in Arkansas.
“I still love Mobile Christian, I’ve got nothing but great things to say about it and my experience there but in December my wife and I found out that we were going to have our second child and so it provided us an opportunity to be back home and closer to our families.”
Evans will be the co-defensive coordinator at Central Arkansas Christian in Little Rock.
