“I’m very happy they get to continue to play the game they love,” said Bell football coach Joey Whittington in a statement. “They put in the work to give themselves the opportunity to continue. [They’re] hard working young men who love football. Days like today are very special for a coach.”
Whittington added that all four players graduated from Bell with GPAs over 3.0.
