RCA Seniors Nathan Gordon and Arik Washington

History was made Friday at Russell Christian Academy.

Nathan Gordon and Arik Washington became the first two Warriors in school history to sign college football scholarships.

Gordon is an all-district linebacker who will attend Southwest Assembly of God University in Waxahachie,Texas. Meanwhile, Washington made all-district and all-state during his time at Russell Christian. He signed with Mississippi College, who recently made the move up to Division II competition.

"Arik likes to set the example and to push the kids in the classroom and also in the weight room and on the football field," said RCA Head Coach Nate Ballard. "Gordon has actually answered the call to ministry, and that's one reason he chose SAGU, so he can further his pastoring degree and look to preach some and also play football."
