DECATUR, Tenn. - Aaron Swafford, one of the Chattanooga area's top college football prospects in the rising senior class, saw no reason to delay his decision any longer. Meigs County's two-time all-state quarterback announced his commitment to Navy during an exclusive Facebook Live interview Monday afternoon with the Times Free Press.

"Playing football at a high level has always been my goal since I was a little kid," Swafford said. "Early on in the recruiting process I was told to go where you're wanted, and the coaches at Navy have proven for a while that they want me in their program, so I decided why wait and let someone else possibly take this opportunity that's mine.
