DECATUR, Ill. Tucker Schwengel of Shelbyville has indicated he plans to attend Millikin University and play football for Big Blue Head Coach Patrick Etherton.

“We are very excited that Tucker has decided to continue his career at Millikin University,” said Etherton. “We had the opportunity to watch Tucker play a lot of football and basketball over the past two years and our coaches have been impressed with him as a leader as well as a player. He has had a great high school career and we look for him to continue that success at Millikin. Tucker comes from an offense that is similar to what we run at Millikin and we look for him to have an easy transition into our system. Our coaching staff strives to keep the local talent at Millikin University and we did a great job of keeping Tucker in the area.”
