The annual signing ceremony marks the first day that a high school senior can ink a binding National Letter of Intent for a collegiate sport. Colleges and universities must be members of the United States National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Madison, who plays quarterback and five other positions for the Broncos, will start classes on Jan. 7 at Oregon State University. He looks forward to playing for the Oregon State Beavers while earning his degree in criminal justice.

Madison, who plays running back, fullback, wide receiver, linebacker, and safety for the Broncos, hopes to play professionally someday for the National Football League.

As he gets ready to hit the gridiron for Oregon State University, Madison promises, “I will never fold!”
