      Mitchell County sends two to Point

      Two former Mitchell County Eagles are going to Point University on a football scholarship.

      Running back Anfreenee Williams and safety Anthony Murray, Jr. both signed with the Skyhawks on Thursday morning.

      Point is in the NAIA and is a member of the Appalachian Athletic Conference. Both players were impressed with head coach David Rocker and his staff during the recruitment period.

      I like the university, said Williams. It TMs a great chance for me to go as a freshman and play as a freshman, and put up good stats.

      Both former Eagles expect to play right away at Point.

      By game one, I TMm starting, said Murray on his hopes of making a quick impact. Whether it be special teams or defense, I just want to make a contribution to the team.
