Cornerback Tevin Bell, who was the Vikings top defensive back this season, picked Northwest Mississippi Community College. He finished his senior year by catching five interceptions and leading WC to a 9-3 record.

Wide Receiver Jerry Evans signed with Southwestern Assemblies of God University. He will go in as an athlete and play wherever is needed.

Lineman Pernell Defrance and Chris Collins signed with Hinds Community College to become team managers after helping the Vikings to much success this season. They will join the Eagles program this summer.
