First Coast Athletes Set Sights on College Choices


Mullen, Bryan, The Florida Times Union


It's an exciting time for high school seniors, patiently waiting for college acceptance letters and hoping their hard work pays off.

But for some lucky seniors, colleges actually court them. Whether it be for academic excellence or outstanding athletic achievement -- and sometimes a combination of both -- this time of year marks one of the most difficult decisions a teenager has to make.

Here is a look at some area high school athletes who have committed to various colleges and universities.

Kyle Coffman, Fletcher. Coffman has orally committed to play football next season at Charleston (S.C.) Southern University. The senior helped lead the Fletcher football team to its first state playoff game in five seasons. Coffman, a 6-foot-3, 295-pound guard, was a four-year letterman at Fletcher and was voted the Senators' offensive lineman of the year for 1998.

Lori Serrano and Heather Pelkey, Bishop Kenny. Serrano and Pelkey have orally committed to play volleyball at the University of North Florida next year. Serrano, the 1998 Times-Union Volleyball Player of the Year, has academically qualified and currently holds a 3.7 grade-point average. Pelkey and Serrano teamed to help lead the Lady Crusaders to the Class 4A state title game in Lakeland before losing to powerhouse Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons.
