Jonas Sanker Signs with University of Virginia Football Program

While he officially committed to the University of Virginia back in December, standout athlete Jonas Sanker was able to celebrate his football career with the Eagles on the traditional Signing Day of February 3. Jonas has played on both sides of the ball since his freshman year, excelling in many positions.
In his junior year, he threw for 1,590 yards and 33 touchdowns and rushed for 1,116 yards and 24 touchdowns. He was the only player in Central Virginia to both run and pass for 1,000+ yards during the 2019 season. Even though he and his teammates missed out on their 2020 season due to COVID-19, he has continued training hard for his collegiate debut. We wish him all the best for his undoubtedly bright future.
