BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- Milano High School honored seniors Kathen Funburg and Parker Jones as they signed letters of intent Friday afternoon at the school's library.
Jones played a pivotal role in the Eagles state championship run in track last spring. He won state in the mile and was on the mile relay team that also claimed gold in Austin last year. The KBTX Classroom Champion came in second at the state cross country meet last fall and is headed to Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches on a track scholarship.
Funburg is going to Birmingham Prep to continue his football career. He was a three year two way starter for the Eagles. During his junior season he played running back and rushed for over 900 yards. This past season he moved to quarterback throwing for 800 yards and 10 touchdowns.
