Former VC wide receiver adjusting to new home at Oklahoma Panhandle State

Devren Constantine could have hung up his football cleats after high school and begin a new chapter in his life. Instead, he decided to continue chasing his dream of playing football on the college level.
Today, Constantine is making his dream a reality.
The former Vermilion Catholic wide receiver, who graduated last year, signed a football scholarship to a small Division II college called Oklahoma Panhandle State, located in the town of Goodwell, Ok.
Goodwell’s population is 1,300 people while the enrollment on the four-year college is 1,700.
