Diamond Ranch players sign with Ivy League, Navy and Oregon

Diamond Ranch saw four members of its football team sign on Feb. 1 and their destinations were quite impressive. Receiver Andrew Fischer (Harvard) and linebacker Jacob Ardron (Columbia) will play in the Ivy League.

Offensive tackle Blake Benjamin will play for the Navy and aim for medical school. Defensive back Chris Miller will make it easy for local fans to follow his career by playing in the Pac-12 at Oregon State.

“It’s a college town and everybody in the town is friendly,” Miller said of Corvallis, Ore. where Oregon State is located. “Being in the PAC-12, that’s a competitive conference. Any school that would’ve given me an offer, I would’ve taken it. Oregon State gave me the offer and I hopped on it.”
