PANAMA CITY BEACH/VERNON, FL (WJHG/WECP) Six student athletes now have their future paths made a little easier, at least in terms of how they're paying for college.

Those six signing athletic scholarship offers Wednesday at Arnold and Vernon.

Let's begin at Arnold, where four scholarship offers were officially accepted.

Taylor Bradley going first, he signs a soccer scholarship with Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama.

Two football players followed, Casey Peppers who played on both sides of the ball, fullback and linebacker, signing with Huntingdon as well.

His teammate Trajan Holmes, a defensive lineman signing with Faulkner University in Montgomery.

And last but not least, Madeline Campbell signing a swimming scholarship with the University of West Florida.

All four of these young people speaking eloquently and sweetly about their faith, their coaches, their families and friends for helping get to this day, we'll let MadI be the example of that!

"First of all, I want to say thank you to my parents...thank you for taking me to practice at five a.m. before I could drive. Thank you for giving up every weekend.. (holding back tears) .I'm so sorry. Thank you to Marshall for texting me after every meet. And Mitchell for talking me through the bad days."

Meanwhile at Vernon Wednesday, brothers Nick and Nikko Campbell both signing with Warner University, that's an NAIA school in Lake Wales, Florida.

Nick a defensive end who had 50 tackles, 4 sacks and two fumble recoveries his senior season. Nikko a linebacker who had 72 tackles, a sack, an interception and one fumble recovery last season.

Both were first team all region selections for coach Tranquille and the Yellow Jackets.
