DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - It was a big day for Diboll athletics as two of their student athletes signed to play the same sport, at the same college.

Leonides Rodriguez and Jayden Spring have both decided they will take their talents to Jacksonville College.

Both say playing college soccer was a dream of their's that they're happy they can fulfill together.

"I was planning on going to a different college where nobody else was going, so it's pretty cool to have somebody else that's going with me," said Springs. "I thought my soccer career was over after my last high school game, so to be playing soccer again is really great."

"I was really happy about signing and nervous," said Rodriguez. "I went to the school today to go visit them and to see how it is. I'm just excited to play college ball."

Rodriguez is planning on studying Kinesiology to become a personal trainer, while Springs is looking into getting her degree in nursing.
