Coach Larry Cox of Lakota West High School informs OPS about two more of his players headed to college. We look at both players and what Coach Cox had to say.

Lakota West High School saw two more of its football players sign with a college on Tuesday. Trey Iverson and Brandon Poston both signed on the dotted line and will play their college football for Georgetown College. Here is a look at each of these young men.

Trey Iverson - 6'3 - 215lbs. TE/OLB. Trey is the son of Jane and Al Iverson. He was a co-captain for Coach Larry Cox this past season. During his playing days at Lakota West, he was a two-way starter and earned two varsity letters in football. Trey received the 2003 Varsity Red Badge of Courage for his efforts in the Firebird Football Program.

In 2003 he was the teams third leading tackler with 55 tackles (13 for loss). He led the team in sacks with 3 and also recorded 4 pass break-ups. On offense Trey pulled in 2 catches for 23 yards and was used more as a blocking TE in the Firebirds offense. Trey earned Honorable Mention All-Southwest Ohio from the A.P. sports writers.

During his playing days at Lakota West, Trey also played basketball during his freshman, sophomore and junior years. Trey was also involved with Project Appreciation in conjunction with Princeton High School. OPS wishes Trey the best at the next level.

Brandon Poston - 6'0 - 265lbs. NG - Brandon is not new to, we have seen Brandon progress and earn a scholarship with Georgetown College. Brandon is the son of David Poston and Allison Kirschner.

Brandon was also a co-captain for Coach Larry Cox and the Firebird Football program. He was a three year starter for Lakota West and earned three varsity letters in football. Brandon earned the 2004 West Pride Award for the Firebird Football Program and was credited with 24 tackles (4 for loss) and 2 sacks in 2003.

Brandon was named 2nd team All Greater Miami Conference in 2003. In 2002 and 2003 he was named Honorable Mention Journal News All-Butler County. Brandon was a member of the J. Kyle Braid leadership group at Lakota West. He also finished 4th overall at the 2002 Ohio State lifting competition and finished 1st in the squat with a meet best of 510lbs. OPS wishes Brandon the best at the next level, and I'm sure his father is very proud of what he's accomplished.

Coach Larry Cox had this to say about his two players.

"I could not be happier and prouder for Trey, Brandon and Georgetown College. Trey and Brandon will be receiving a great education and play for a nationally ranked football program. Georgetown will be getting two great young men that will represent the school and the football program with class, dignity and pride just as they did here at Lakota West High School. I know they will do well. They have a quest for excellence that was instilled in them by their parents who I also congratulate for a great job as well."
