Quarterback Will Weathers has committed to Abilene Christian, while offensive lineman Mason Dickey has pledged to Fort Hays State. Fellow offensive lineman Matt Seamands is headed to Southeastern Oklahoma State.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Weathers also had an offer from Air Force. Weathers will join an Abilene Christian program making the move from Division II to Division I FCS. ACU will compete in the Southland Conference starting in the fall.

Weathers completed 100 of 144 passes for 1,420 yards, 17 touchdowns and only two interceptions, while rushing for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns on 123 carries

“He played all season with a stress fracture in his foot and gutted it out for his teammates,” said Brook Hill coach Terry Pirtle.

Weathers accounted for 2,562 total yards and 42 total touchdowns during Brook Hill’s 2011 TAPPS Division III state championship season.

Dickey, a 6-foot-2, 285-pounder who was a first-team all-district on both sides of the ball will play for a Fort Hays State program that competes in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association, a Division II conference. Fort Hays State is located in Hays, Kan.

“Cornerstone of our offensive line for three seasons,” Pirtle said.

Seamands will join a Southeastern Oklahoma State team that plays in the Great American Conference, which is Division II.

“He really improved at the center position and hit the weight room,” Pirtle said of the 6-foot-3, 300-pounder. “Self-made player with a ton of upside for college.”

After moving up to TAPPS Division II for the 2012 season, Brook Hill finished 6-5 with a first-round playoff loss to Midland Christian.
