Buckley’s Harris, Weber Sign LOIs
BUCKLEY — Buckley seniors Austin Harris and Joey Weber signed their letters of intent on Friday to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate leve.
Harris will play basketball at Alma College, while Weber will play soccer at Hope College.
“It’s quite an honor,” Weber said. “It was unexpected for me last minute to go play sports in college, but it’s what I wanted to do. Just like to thank God for this opportunity, and I’m looking forward to what’s next for me in life.”
“It’s a blessing. I’ve really wanted it since I was a kid, you know, I’ve always wanted to continue what I love, and I’m really blessed,” Harris said. “Thank you to the man upstairs for giving me this opportunity to play at Alma, and I can’t wait to see what my next chapter is.”
Both athletes played on the same soccer and basketball teams throughout high school, including a pair of state finals appearances in basketball.
