(DOTHAN)-- Three Northview baseball players all felt like a weight had been lifted off their shoulders.

Not only was it a dream come true to sign letters of intent to play the sport they love in college but it also provided an opportunity to focus on their senior season.

Their goal: Bring a state title to Northview.

Braden Olive and Jeremiah Summerford signed to play at Central Alabama Community College.

Olive says his strength is pitching. The left-hander went 5-1 last season with a save. He threw 40 innings, giving up 34 hits, 9 walks and 34 strikeouts.

Olive also threw a no-hitter.

Summerford, his catcher and future roomate, hit .316 last season for the Cougars. He led the team with 26 RBI's and hit five home runs.

Defensively, Summerford threw out 50% of base stealers while behind home plate.

Outfielder Turnver Vincent signed to play next season at Wallace State Hanceville.

Vincent's junior season was injury-plagued. However, despite being hampered by severe hamstring injuries he hit .266 with 17 hits and 13 RBI's.
