Three Trojans from the Oak Ridge football program inked their names to a college Letter of Intent to play at the next level at a signing ceremony last Wednesday at the school’s multi-purpose room.

Quarterback Will Tostenson will take his talents to Azusa Pacific; shifty power running back Matanane stays close to play for Sacrament State; and Will Tucker will catch passes for Cal Poly.

Tucker led the Sac-Joaquin section with 1,257 yards on 55 receptions and scored 14 touchdowns. He was named to the All-Metro first team. Tostenson was a second-team pick for a season in which he threw for 2,616 yards and 32 touchdowns. Matanane, an Honorable Mention selection, ran for 1,379 yards and 10 touchdowns in the Trojans’ first season at the Division I level.

All three were named to the Delta River League first team, with Matanane named the league’s All Purpose Player of the Year.
