Collins happy with Bears’ 2022 National Signing Day Class
Published 12:16 pm Thursday, February 3, 2022
After making a big impact during his first season with the Bears last year, head football coach Cliff Collins is already laying the groundwork for the encore this season. The latest step is bringing 24 new student athletes who signed their letters of intent Wednesday during National Signing Day.
“We signed two quarterbacks, one tight end, one receiver, three (offensive) linemen, we added a kicker to the roster, signed five D-Linemen, six linebackers and we signed five DB’s, so we are halfway where we need to be to complete this class and complete this team. That’s 24 total signees,” he said.
In addition, Coach Collins is also bringing in a handful of kids as preferred walk ons, who will have the opportunity to earn scholarships.

And considering the fact that last year’s team was freshmen-heavy, Coach Collins said he is comfortable with the current layout but knows that there is still work to do.
“This is exactly where I wanted it to be, half and half,” he said. “The first class had (only) nine sophomores so now we are not upside down. This group of guys is going to be a tremendous help for this football team moving forward in 2022.”
