Files signs with Hendrix College

Dane Files signed his letter of intent to play wide receiver at Hendrix College in Conway, Ark., at a ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic School

Come on, play football with us this year. We’ll have fun! Can’t you just hear teens urging a friend to pick up the pigskin and join the team so they can hang out and have fun? Thankfully one St. Mary’s senior listened to his friend and played football for the Tigers his senior year. And what a senior year it was! His time on that 100 yards of turf led to his recruitment and ultimate signing to play college ball. Dane Files signed his letter of intent to play at Hendrix College in Conway, Ark.

And yes, he only played one year of his high school career but in that year, one where he had over 600 yards receiving, he got nods for All-District and nominations for All-State by both the sports writers association and the coaches association. Coach Aaron York said Files got his body in shape, but most importantly, had is academics in shape which always helps in the recruiting process.

York, who had Hendrix head coach Buck Buchannan as his defensive coordinator in college, said Files was a really good fit for Hendrix. “I’m just glad I got him for one year. He has such a competitive nature that will help him excel. He fits their (Hendrix’s) program and their program fits him.”
