Four more Coweta seniors make college commits

The Newnan Times-Herald

The 2021/2022 school year is just weeks away, and the upcoming college seniors are making final decisions on where they will spend the next phase of their life.

Four local athletes recently made their final decisions in advance of their final senior season.

Trinity Christian inside linebacker Christian Hanson has committed to play for the Akron Zips. He’s been an imposing linebacker in the middle of the Lion defense for the last three years and will look to get his team back to the state championship.
