Signing Day exceeded Lincoln Christian wideout-defensive back Anthony Wilkinson’s expectations.
“It was even more exciting than I thought,” Wilkinson said. “It hasn’t sunk in. I know it will, but I’m kind of in shock right now.
“I always wanted the chance to play Division-I football, and I knew I could get it, and now that it’s happening, I’m realizing a dream.”
In 2012, he caught 53 passes for 798 yards and 11 touchdowns. He had 128 career catches for 1,862 yards and 28 TDs.
Wilkinson committed to Army in December.
“They were the first to offer,” Wilkinson said. “There were a lot of moments when I thought it wouldn’t happen (a D-I offer), but I kept trusting God.”
A chance to play major college football and serve his country was an unbeatable combination for him.
