Signing Days Celebrate Football Players at Hillcrest and Fairley


Memphis’ Fairley High School and Hillcrest High School hosted their annual Signing Days, celebrating nine senior football players who signed letters of intent to attend universities across the country. Signing Day serves as a reminder of how vital our school communities are to the mission of preparing students for college, leadership, and life.

The Hillcrest Vikings and the Fairley Bulldogs--and all of Green Dot-- are immensely proud of our student athletes who have officially signed and received scholarships to top colleges. “We know that it not only takes talent to reach this level, but it also demands an unyielding commitment to better themselves mentally and physically,” said Jocquell Rodgers, Director of Community Engagement. “We are grateful for the efforts of parents, coaches and staff who have provided the necessary supports for our students’ success.”

Hillcrest Student Destinations

Seniors De’Favus Ross and William Harris, Jr. have committed to attend Missouri Valley University in the fall, where they get to continue playing under the Viking mascot. Seniors Raishun Morris and Tyler Grim will hit the gridiron for Bethel University, and also head to college with a peer from their neighborhood.

Fairley Student Destinations


Lawrence Allen will attend Victor Valley College in Victorville, CA. Macro Fuller and Kendrick Hightower will also be heading to California, and have committed to Fullerton College in Fullerton, CA. Tyhem Conley has committed to Bethel University in McKenzie, TN, and Kadarius Mills will be attending Dodge City Commercial College in Dodge City, Kansas.

It’s our belief that when soon-to-be Green Dot alumni go to college with an existing network of support in their freshman year, they are more likely to complete their degrees. We are proud of our student athletes heading to the universities that provide them the opportunity to not only play football, but also to get a free college education.
