It's been a busy morning across Galveston County as about two dozen athletes sign their college letters of intent. 

I've just finished up at Texas City where six Stingaree football players signed to play college ball. 

Leading the pack were the Wonder Twins Armanti and D'Onta Foreman who are headed to the University of Texas. We've all known since the summer the brothers were headed to the 40 Acres in Austin, but now it is official. 

As happy as they were dad Darreck Foreman was more so. To help keep his boys' focused on studies and football the elder Foreman handle all the recruiting stuff. 

Despite the twins' commitment to Texas, when Mack Brown resigned the calls from other colleges started coming fast and furious. Dad said his boys never thought of going anywhere else. 

In Dickinson there are three football players and a track star headed to the next level. 

Lauryn Caldwell, the Lady Gators shotputter and discus thrower is headed to UT on a track scholarship. 

While the focus this morning was on football, Dickinson Athletic Director John Snelson made sure Caldwell was also on hand as "inspiration" to the other athletes gathered for this morning's ceremony. 

Caldwell offcially signs this afternoon with the Longhorns. 

Dickinson runningback Krysten Hammond is headed to Georgia State in Atlanta 

His teammate Devin Gray is off to Costa Costra College in California while Andrew McReynolds will be playing ball at West Texas A&M in Canyon. 

From here it's CCISD.
