By Staff Reports


Three former Lowcountry football standouts earned opportunities to make NFL teams.

Hilton Head Island's Poona Ford, Whale Branch's Dee Delaney and Beaufort's Stephen Baggett agreed to free-agent deals with NFL teams Saturday, shortly after the NFL Draft ended.

Ford, a defensive lineman, signed with the Seattle Seahawks while Delaney is going to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baggett to the New York Giants.

Ford, who played at University of Texas, was the Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year and had a strong showing in a pair of college all-star games. He started 30 games for the Longhorns in his career and finished with 133 tackles, four sacks and three forced fumbles.

Delaney, a cornerback, started his career at The Citadel and was part two Southern Conference titles before transferring to Miami this year.
