Crestview athletes vow to play their best after signing scholarships

The young athletes will be assets to their new teams, coaches said.

Born's love of soccer and eagerness to learn on the field will benefit UWF's program, CHS boys soccer Coach Scottie Milton said.

"This is my fourth year here (at CHS) and he has improved every year," Milton said. "He is an overall great player to have at any position." 

Middleton and Simms — who made the Subway All-Star team this year, according to Kathy Combest, the girls basketball and volleyball coach, both have the athletic skill sets to go the distance.

"(Arianna) has speed and can shoot the long ball, shoots a very good jump shot (and) plays very good defense ... those are skills you need to have," Combest said. "(Jasmine) is so powerful at the net; she can jump high and hit the ball hard."'

Middleton, who played outside hitter on the CHS girls volleyball team, said leaving Florida won't be easy, but it's necessary to meet her goals.  

"I'm a little nervous about leaving home, but it's a step that I got to take," she said.
