Hannsz signs to play football at Tarleton
Pecos Eagle senior Justin Hannsz signed a letter of agreement to attend Tarleton State University in Stephenville on a football scholarship.
Hannsz, who earned all-district honors for Pecos in 2005 after being moved to defensive end midway through the season, and ended up as the leading tackler for the Eagles in 2005. He will be redshirted his freshman year at the school, and will play the same position for the Texans.
His father, Carey Hannsz, said the signing on Monday at the Pecos High School field house, wasn’t a full letter of intent. “Tarleton doesn’t do it after a certain date. They just do a gentleman’s agreement,” he said.
Hannsz added that West Texas A&M and Eastern New Mexico State University were two other schools looking at his son, who also ran track for the Eagles during the 2005-06 school year.
