EPHRAIM, Utah (Snow College)-Four former Snow College football players received the opportunity to continue their college football careers at four-year institutions during national signing day Wednesday.

Offensive lineman Justin Cobbley, a 6’6” 340-pound prospect, will continue his playing days at NCAA Division II school Colorado Mesa of Grand Junction, Colo. Cobbley played at Jordan High School in Sandy before coming to Snow.

Additionally, all-Western States Football League offensive lineman Tamatoa Neher signed with the Lamar Cardinals of the NCAA FCS (formerly Division I-AA) and will compete in the Southland Conference. Neher also received some interest from Brigham Young University before opting to go to Beaumont, Texas. In some circles, Neher was considered to be the #7 junior college offensive lineman in the country.

Defensive back Daymond Murray also went to an FCS program as the 6’1” 210-pound Rubonia, Fla. native signed with the Western Illinois Leathernecks of the Missouri Valley football conference. This means he will be competing against the defending FCS national champions, the North Dakota State Bison. Other strong Missouri Valley conference foes include traditional powers South Dakota State, Youngstown State and Northern Iowa.

Finally, 6’3 300-pound offensive lineman Kyle Stapley has signed with the Mountain West’s New Mexico Lobos in the FBS, the highest level of NCAA Division I football. Stapley, a former Morgan High star was instrumental in helping the Badgers to a #6 national ranking in the NJCAA polls. Stapley was a key component in a strong offensive line that blocked for NJCAA All-American tailback D’Arman Notoa and helped the Badgers average 37.2 points per game and 452.4 yards of offense per outing.
