Hudson linebacker Steven Phillips will play college football for Averett University, a Division III private school in Daneville, Virginia, Cobras coach Mark Kantor tweeted and later confirmed Wednesday afternoon.

Phillips, who made his commitment by phone Wednesday, becomes the first Hudson football player to sign with a college under Kantor, who took over the Cobras in Spring 2012 following back-to-back winless seasons.

Phillips, who had a team-high 105 tackles, four sacks, three pat downs, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery, was integral to Hudson’s turnaround that saw the team go 3-7 and finish fifth in the Class 5A-District 6 standings.

Averett struggled last season, as the Cougars finished 1-9 last season.
