ALBURNETT, Iowa (KCRG) - Five athletes signed National Letters of Intent on Wednesday at Alburnett, including Matt Barnett. He became the first football player in school history to sign with a Division I school; he'll play linebacker for South Dakota State.

"A lot of guys coming through haven't had that opportunity," said Barnett. "I feel like I'm really blessed to say that I had that opportunity and to be able to play at a Division I school; it's really important to me."
