Signing Day for Ottawa Hills Students

Ottawa Hills High School students Sam Beal and Shawn Kneeland will participate in National Signing Day on Wednesday, February 4, 2015.
 
Shawn Kneeland will be attending Michigan Tech. He was a three year starter for the Ottawa Hills varsity football team. Kneeland was unanimously elected as team captain for the 2014 season. He was not only a two-way starter, but also played on almost every special team. Kneeland was named All Conference in 2014.
 
According to Coach Chuck Ruffin, “Shawn brought tremendous leadership to the team on the field, as well as in the classroom. Shawn Kneeland was the heart and soul of the Bengals during the 2014 season.”
 
Sam Beal will be attending Western Michigan University. Beal was also a three year starter on the Ottawa Hills varsity football team. He played receiver and defensive back his senior year, along with punt and kick returner. Beal was All Conference in 2012 and 2014. He also served as team captain with Kneeland during the 2014 season.
 
“Sam is by far one of the fastest players to ever play football at Ottawa Hills. Sam’s speed put fear in opposing teams as they double and sometimes triple covered him,” said Coach Ruffin.
