Wednesday was an historic day for St. Stephens Indian School. For the first time since sports were reintroduced at the Bureau of Indian Affairs school several decades ago, two athletes have signed letters of intent to play college football.

The athletes are Roberto Hernandez and David Kills Pretty Enemy. Both are headed to play football at Dakota College, a community college in Botteneau, North Dakota.

They were coached by Billy Brost, who is the architect of the resurgent football program for the Eagles.

Hernandez also received the Wilford Mower Award for Class 1A schools in the Big Horn Basin and Fremont County. Additionally, Hernandez was honored this past March by the Wyoming Chapter of the National Football Foundation-College Hall of Fame with its Perseverance Award.
