FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - He spent his last few years as a leader on Mary Persons' defense. Now, Akebren Ralls will join a defensive backfield at the next level.
The 2013 All-State selection will play football at Kennesaw State.
The Owls just started up their program but they won't play their first game until 2015. Ralls says he can't wait to get to KSU and get started.
"We've got a great class coming in," Ralls says. "We're going to have a year to try and prepare for that first game. That's going to be the key. I think once we finally get on the field and play, the sky's the limit."
Mary Persons could have a few more players sign with colleges in the next few days.
