MACON, GA -- Westside has been the standard for football in Macon the last 20 years.

The Seminoles have lost one game (2016 vs. Southwest) since 1997. Westside not only expect success in Bibb County, but at the next level as well.

Wednesday afternoon, two Seminoles signed their national letters of intent to continue their football careers. Offensive lineman Kevin Reeves inked with Point University while interior lineman Kalvin Adkins signed with Wooster College in Ohio.

Reeves is humbled to receive the same opportunity as some of the Seminole greats.

"Kareem Jackson and Clint Kent came from this school," Reeves said. "Great players here and just to know that I'll be one of them and I'll bring the Westside pride with me is great."

Reeves and Adkins won't be the only ones signing. More Seminoles are expected to make their college decisions before the end of the school year. Wednesday was about the big fellas in the trenches, and they had their support system on hand.

"It means a lot," Adkins said. "A lot of my friends and homeboys didn't sign today but they're going to go to college and play too so. I like to have them here to support me."

Westside finished the 2016 season with a first-round exit in the GHSA AAA playoffs. The Seminoles will scrimmage Veterans in their spring game on May 19 at Freedom Field.
