CHICO, Calif. -- In front of family, friends and coaches, Aidan Finney and Aidan Parks signed their national letter of intent. 

Both Aidans helped lead Pleasant Valley High's football team to two state championships in three years and both received full ride scholarships to go play Division I football in college. 

Finney will head to San Diego State as a offensive lineman. Parks will play for Montana State as a linebacker. 

"It's been a blessing," said Parks. "I never thought this was going to happen, I was just hoping to get an opportunity, but to make it happen right out of high school, it's a dream come true. "I've been thinking about this my whole life, so for it to be here in the moment it's surreal, for sure." 

"I worked very hard since I was seven years old playing football and it's just something I've been looking forward to for a long time and it's just starting to pay off now," said Finney. 

In the beginning of the 2019 football season, Parks and Finney combined for over a dozen scholarship offers before deciding.
