Ford Chooses Zips
Early last week, Bethel Park (Pa.) running back/linebacker Bre' Ford was offered a scholarship from Akron. Ford decided to head to Akron on Wednesday to watch the Zips play Miami (Ohio) and to get a closer look at the school. Ford, who had been holding an offer from Buffalo was impressed and notified Scout.com over the weekend that he had made his decision. "I just wanted to let you know I committed to Akron on Friday," Ford said. "I went up there Wednesday and even though they lost, they fought hard until the end. All the coaches at Akron made me feel at home there. "It is there first year there, but they are going to keep working," Ford continued. "They are going to keep building up the program and they really want me to be a part of it. I could tell they are determined to get Akron back on the map and to the top of the MAC conference." Ford was impressed with the facilities among other things at Akron. "Everything I saw from the student union, the stadium, the indoor facility it was impressive," Ford stated. "I just saw myself fitting in there."
