Branch signs with Southern Nazarene University

Eagle multi-sport standout Kolbe Branch is shown signing his football letter of intent to Southern Nazarene University, in Bethany, Oklahoma last week at the film room in the Johnson Activity Center in Fairfield. Looking on with understandable pride are his mother, LaMonica Branch and his grandmother, Lois Gatson. Branch's brother, Keiston Gatson, and his college scout are seated to his right. Southern is a mid-size DII school in the Great American Conference, with a football program that is on the rise under head coach, Andy Lambert, who has seen his first three seasons improve from (1-10), to (2-9), and (4-7), from two consecutive (0-11) campaigns before he arrived. Branch's exciting brand of play should help that improvement continue.
