HAMILTON, Ill. (WGEM) -- Coy Dorothy is taking his gun slinging abilities to MacMurray College.
The West Hancock senior quarterback made his decision official on Friday morning choosing the Highlanders from the NCAA Division III ranks.
Dorothy was surrounded by friends and family as he signed his national letter of intent.
"It's always great to have a dad (where) I can say, "Dad, I want to go out and throw the football,' and he says, 'All right, let's go.' I've always wanted to be the quarterback and I've always wanted to be the man," Dorothy said.
"I just feel like the opportunity that MacMurray (provides) running the spread I feel like I'll throw the ball that I've always grown up wanting to."
Titans head coach Brian Lewton couldn't be more proud.
"Coy has worked really hard at this," Lewton explained.
"To see him achieve his goal and his dream of playing college football is amazing."
Dorothy threw for more than 2,500 yards and 27 touchdowns last season. He also rushed for nine more TD's.
