East Tennessee Signing Day wraparound

Knoxville (WATE) – Wednesday was a day full of dotted lines, signatures and smiles all across East Tennessee as the latest era of area athletes made pursuing their passion at the next level official.

At Greenback, Kayne Roberts signed with North Carolina, going from the smallest classification in the state of Tennessee (1A) to a Power 5 program with the Tarheels.

“People asked if I could even get a scholarship playing in 1A,” Roberts said. “But if you can play ball, you can play ball.”

Hunter Willis and Tavin Kilpatrick both signed with Tennessee Tech.
