On February 3rd, two senior athletes, Audi Isbell and Daryn Carruthers signed their letters of intent.
Isbell, a defensive end, wide receiver, and punter for the Grace Prep football team received his letter from Harding University only a few weeks before the big day.
“It’s nice for all the stress to be over.” Isbell said.
With his family and coaches by his side, Isbell signed his commitment to Harding University’s football program.
“This is a great opportunity to continue to make an athletic performance at a higher level.” Isbell said.
Carruthers, a defensive back and wide receiver signed his commitment letter to Southwestern University, surrounded by his friends and family.
“I’m grateful that I’m in this position,” Cruthers said, “and I’m just looking forward to the next chapter of my life.”
Coach Chad Pegues, the head football coach, spoke very highly of each player.
“They were great on the field, both of them are super superb athletes, went above and beyond what we asked them to do, and played multiple positions well,” said Pegues.
Both Isbell and Currthers were leaders on and off the field and GPA is overjoyed for them to start the next chapter of their lives and follow their dreams of playing college football.
