On Feb. 19, surrounded by family, coaches, teammates, and friends, Oneonta’s Collier McPherson, son of Scott and Shawn McPherson, accepted his scholarship to Illinois College. The 6’3” offensive guard will head to Jacksonville, Ill. later this year where he will become a part of the Blueboy family. Recently named to the Second Team All-County Team, Collier has been an integral part of the Redskins’ success over the past couple of years.
The Blueboys officially offered the scholarship in December via a letter that stated, “Through our getting to know you, we have come to the conclusion that you embody the virtues that will take our program to an elite level. We are eager to connect you with the tradition that accompanies the oldest college in the state of Illinois.”
