Three Escambia Academy athletes signed letters of intents on National Signing Day, February 1, to participate in collegiate-level athletic programs.

Senior athletes Kris Brown, Trae Lee and Drew Parker will step up to the next level.

Lee accepted a Division I scholarship offer to play football for Navy (the U.S. Naval Academy).

Brown became one of the newest members of Mississippi College’s football program.

Parker signed a baseball scholarship with Coastal Alabama Community College in Brewton.

The three were reportedly the only athletes in Escambia County to accept college scholarship offers.
