A signing ceremony was held at the FHS gym last Thursday where friends, classmates, teammates and family members joined together to congratulate the two football stars.

In his senior year, Marr was an All-Western North Carolina Athletic Conference and All-WNC lineman despite missing five games due to a broken leg.

Manning, who played at tailback went down in the second quarter of the first game of the season with a torn ACL. Before the season began however, he was chosen as the Preseason Player of the Year. In 2012 he was named an All-WNC tailback and Co-Western North Carolina Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year after he set school records for single-season rushing yardage (2,364) and touchdowns (33).

The two will join former Panther Jacob Davis, who will be playing his second year with the Saints.
