Back in January, Isaiah Ramadene was still looking for his first college scholarship offer despite having a brilliant senior season and being academically qualified for NCAA athletics and admission.
As a senior, he was selected First Team All-District and Second Team All-Region at linebacker, and he was Second Team All-State at tight end.
At the recruit757 Uncommitted Senior Showcase, Ramadene (2019 LB/DE/FB 6-1 205) drew plenty of interest. That showcase led to college visits with Bluefield, Alderson-Broaddus and Christopher Newport.
Congratulations to Isaiah Ramadane for signing with Christopher Newport today! They are getting a great versatile player and an even better young man. We are proud of you! @FLSVarsity @SpotsyKnights @SpotsyPrincipal @tcoghilljr @cnu_football pic.twitter.com/Svt89w67rn

Additionally, lineman Terry Saddler committed to Alderson-Broaddus, just a couple of weeks after National Signing Day.
The tweet from Spotsylvania Football’s account lauded Saddler: “He graduates with accolades that include All-Conf three times, All-Region twice, All-State, All-Area and All-NOVA twice.”

The talent pool runs deep at Spotsy.
Tyshaun Colbert is the next man up at Spotsylvania and he’s only a rising junior. In his 2018 season, Colbert played on both sides of the ball as a linebacker and running back. Offensively, he rushed for over 1000 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. The 6-2 205 pound sophomore is set to compete this weekend at the recruit757/Sparta Science Showcase at Redskins Park where he will match up against many of the best football athletes from across the Commonwealth.
