Magdaleno signs with Midland

With his parents looking on, Tim Magdaleno signs with Midland Tuesday at SHS

The sixth member off of Scottsbluff's unbeaten regular season football team has signed a letter-of-intent to play college football.

Linebacker and running back Tim Magdaleno is headed to Midland University in Fremont to play for second year head coach Josh Gehring.

"I looked at both Chadron and Midland," Magdaleno said at a news conference at SHS Tuesday afternoon. "In fact Chadron talked to me first but after I visited Midland I felt that is where I wanted to be."

Magdaleno has been recruited as a running back. But his high school coach Joe Benson says he can be successful at many positions.

"He is a versatile player," Benson said. "I can see him playing inside our outside linebacker, or he can be an H-back or fullback."

Benson added that Magdaleno was the player that got things going for the Bearcats last season. "He was a good nasty type of player," the coach said. "He got everybody fired-up. He was a good leader for us."

Magdaleno said academics was a big reason he chose Midland. He plans on majoring in business.

He joins Jon Maag and Luke Worden, who both signed with South Dakota, and Randy Wentz, Ty Dunkel and Matt Klein who all inked with Chadron, as Bearcat football signees.
