CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - East High School and Burns High School continue to send athletes to the next level, as three total athletes signed their NLI’s to their next schools on Tuesday.

Dom Kaszas, East/North Dakota State

Dom Kaszas’ speed stood out on the football field, and he’s continued to make noise during the indoor and outdoor track seasons. His work in the short distance sprints and on the 4 by 100 relay team brought attention from colleges, and he chose north Dakota state as his next step.

Dom became a T-Bird for his senior seasons, and will now head into the f-c-s for his next challenge.

“It felt great. Obviously, that’s something that every person wants to have happen, but for it to actually happen and to have the opportunity to go to a school like NDSU, it was really exciting,” said Dom.

Ava Sutton, East/McPherson College

Ava Sutton joined Dom in the decision to sign on Tuesday, and she’ll be headed out of state as well.

Ava will head to Kansas and join McPhereson college’s cheer team. She mentioned that the gameday style of cheering wasn’t what she was looking for, and found a place to continue competing at McPhereson.

“So NAIA, thats the division I’m going to, is perfect for cheer communities, so that’s where I really started looking at. I just got recruited by a lot of different places, and that was the place I liked the most,” said Ava.

Colby Smith, Burns/Casper College

Colby Smith makes it the second athlete this week to sign his NLI from Burns. He’ll remain in the state, as he takes his next steps to Casper college to join their rodeo team.

Colby has only rode saddle bronc for a couple years, but his move to Casper is the next step in a dream he’s had for a very long time.

“I always roped, and I plan on roping at Casper with them too, but I’ve always done rough stock. Sheep, calf riding, bulls. Saddle bronc kind of just got to me, it was just something I wanted to try. Once I did it, it just stuck forever,” said Colby.
