SOMERSET, NJ - Sixteen seniors from Franklin High School gathered with family, friends, coaches, and school administration, in the school's library Tuesday afternoon to sign their letters of intent to their perspective colleges. 

The seniors will be attending universities throughout the region in the fall, to play baseball, basketball, football, soccer, and track and field. 

"We are very proud of the fact that we have so many athletes that are going to compete in college, you can see there is a litany of places and locations of where they are going to be," Athletic Director Ken Margolin said.

Margolin stressed how important it will be for them to leverage their physical skills to excel in their academic careers. 

"What I would say to the athletes is that, it is a tremendous opportunity both academically and athletically, but really take advantage of the fact that athletics has helped you get into the colleges, so you can pursue academic careers that you can fall back on, for the rest of your lives. That is very important, so I commend all of you, not just for what you've done on the playing fields, but for what you have done in the classroom to put yourselves in a position to be successful."

Where they will play:

Baseball

Garrett Callaghan - Ithaca College

Basketball - State Champions!

Monique Davis - Campbell - Drew University 

Football

Dayo Adebo - Wagner

Tobe Alade - Lincoln University

Marlon Boston - Lincoln University
