Soccer stars Yahya Mohamed and Abibi Osman grew up playing together in Africa.   Now they'll continue playing together in College at Lynchburg.

Osman says, "I believe its pretty cool to play with Yahya, we always played together as young kids and competed because he plays defense and I play attack so he made me a better player because I'm always playing against him, makes me change direction, my movement the way I play."

Mohamed says, "He actually brought up the idea of playing at Lynchburg, he was like it's a great opportunity, the coach wants both of us and I think this is a great opportunity for us and we kind of went for it."

Basketball standouts Destinee McDonald and Alaijah Ragland say they were a "package deal".  They will play together at Randolph College.

Ragland says, "We really wanted to play together because our duo is like, we're like this (great chemistry) on the court, might as well play college ball with it too."

Mohammed says, "We've just been playing together so long we just know each other like the back of our hand.  If we play together we just know we're going to do great."
