Silverado WR Byron Gardner, who came on late in the season for the Hawks, will sign a letter of intent to attending Division I-AA Marist on Wednesday.
Gardner, a 6-foot-2, 175-pounder, caught 11 passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns for Silverado this season. He is also an accomplished student, earning a 4.0 GPA and a 1250 on his SAT according to Hawks coach Carl Posey. Marist is located in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. – roughly 85 miles north of New York City.
Posey also said that linebacker Dominic Bonetpels, a first-team All-County selection, will likely become a preferred walk-on at UNLV or San Jose State. Bonetpels, who has received interest from lower divsion and NAIA schools, has already visited UNLV and will likely visit San Jose State before making a final decision.
