Cumberland football welcomes 20 new signees

Feb. 17—Cumberland football coach Tim Mathis picked up 20 signees during last week's National Signing Day, securing a promising group of signees to bolster their roster for the upcoming seasons.

The signees, Mathis' sixth full class and seventh overall, bring a diverse set of skills and talents, representing various positions on the field. With a low number of graduating seniors, Mathis said at the end of the season the staff didn't need to cast a wide net for a large number, but rather could focus on specific positions.

"We have a lot of guys returning, so we are fortunate to not have to go and get a lot of guys, but we are excited about the young men we have coming in," Mathis said. "We have followed up last years class with another strong class. We have some real high quality young men signing with us and we will have several more we will add that will make this class unbelievable."Thirteen players come from Tennessee, four from Georgia and three from Alabama.
