The scene at East High today was one of pageantry on Wednesday morning. Eleven football players signed letters of intent out of the Leopards' prestigious program.
That included two Utah State signees: Tight end Joe Tukuafu and receiver Preston Curtis. Both were integral playmakers in helping East make a run to the 4A state championship this year. But even as they both got very excited for their upcoming careers, the understanding that they're a few years away from playing in Logan is hard to fit in the picture today.
"It's kind of weird because we're all thinking about college right now," Curtis said. "It's exciting. It's kind of hard to restrain."
