Another Liberal high School athlete has made the move to college athletics.

Blake Willimon signed his letter of intent this morning to play football for the Dodge City

Community College Conquistadors next fall.

Willimon returned to Liberal for his senior season after spending time in south Texas and

immediately became a starting receiver for the Redskins.

That experience has helped Willimon get an opportunity to continue his career as a football

player at the collegiate level.

“Being on the field here the entire season gave

me experience,” Willimon said.

He also like the short distance between Liberal

and Dodge City.

“It seemed like a great place, and I can come

back and visit,” he said.

Liberal High School coach Wade Standley was

optimistic about Willimon’s future at Dodge.

“Blake will do a great job,” he said. “He does a

good job of blocking, and he runs good routers.

He has good hands.”

Standley said it was his goal to make sure that

the players are prepared for the next level.

“When they go to college we want them to be

fundamentally sound,” he said. “Technique

becomes very important, and that is not emphasized

at the high school level. We believe it is

important for them to know technique.”

Willimon will suit up for the Conqs this fall

when the 2010 season begins.
