One signing day following his graduation from Elizabethton High School, the perfect opportunity found former Cyclone standout running back and defensive back Terrence Turner. And, oh, how sweet it was.
Turner, already a part-time student at East Tennessee State, officially became one of the first members of the new Buccaneers football program during Wednesday’s National Signing Day.
“It’s a blessing,” said Turner, who graduated last May from EHS. “I prayed about it and God sent me here. We’ve been through some up’s and down’s, but through it all I kept my faith in God and I ended up at a place.”
