The Cougar football program saw four players from its 2018 conference championship team sign National Letters of Intent during the NCAA's early signing period.

The QB/WR duo chose to sign their NLI paperwork at College of the Canyons, surrounded by family and friends, in front of the Athletic Department's Hall of Fame wall, on Dec. 19.

Eget was a unanimous Southern California Football Association (SCFA) National Division, Northern League First-Team honoree. He finished the 2018 campaign with 2,084 passing yards, 17 total touchdowns and four interceptions after starting the final seven games of the season. 

Pierce finished the year with 52 receptions for 770 yards and five touchdowns to earn All-SCFA Second-Team honors.

COC sophomore defensive backs Shaddrick Lowery Jr. and Antonio Hunt also signed National Letters of Intent with University of New Mexico (UNM), and will remain teammates as part of the Lobos football program. UNM is an NCAA Division I program representing the Mountain West Conference.
