4 Glendale College Players Pick Schools; Peery to Enroll at Valley

Wes Bender, Cotie McMahon, Keith Moffatt and Keith Poche of Glendale College have decided where they will continue their collegiate football careers.

Also, Chris Peery, a former standout at Canyon High, will enroll at Valley College in the spring semester.

Bender, a 5-foot-10, 234-pound All-Western State Conference Northern Division fullback who gained 996 yards this season, made a verbal commitment to attend USC earlier this week, according to Glendale Coach John Cicuto.

Poche, a 6-2, 226-pound defensive lineman, signed with Northern Arizona on Tuesday.


On Monday, McMahon, a Northern Division second-team wide receiver, signed a letter of intent with Utah State and offensive lineman Moffatt (6-1, 239) signed with San Jose State.

McMahon had a team-high 20 receptions for 286 yards and two touchdowns for Glendale (9-2) this season.

Peery, who rushed for 3,928 yards and scored 60 touchdowns for Canyon from 1986-89, attended Cal State Fullerton early this fall before withdrawing from school.

Peery, who was ineligible to compete as a freshman at an NCAA Division I school under Proposition 48 guidelines, will have one season of junior-college eligibility left at Valley.
