National Signing Day is a HUGE day for potential college football recruits. Sitting at a table, surrounded by family, friends, coaches, and being able to tell the world where you have decided to play College football. It’s a high school athlete’s proudest day because not only are they expressing where they want to play, but also where they are going to further their education. It’s a joyous occasion… for the most part. For Jacob Copeland, a No. 5 Wide Receiver recruit from Pensacola Escambia High School, it was a day of joy AND heartbreak at the same time. After announcing he was going to attend the University of Florida, Copeland’s mother (who was decked out in Tennessee & Alabama gear BTW) got up and walked away from the table! Pretty much leaving her son out in the cold. She eventually came back, and seemed to apologize, but…WOW!
Mom walked out when No. 5 WR Jacob Copeland picked Florida over Bama and Tennessee.
But she came back to show her support. pic.twitter.com/vMrQenHjZW
