More Easley Football fun on the Hoyts.org blog!
Our son, Brett Albertson, who is the Easley High School Green Wave center, #75, was selected as Glenco Foam / WMYA-40 Scholar-Athlete for the first week of their 2012 program!
Brett’s not just a football player, he’s amazingly smart too! Guess you can tell we are proud of him!
At the end of the season, they will select a student to receive a scholarship prize. Sure would be awesome if Brett were to be chosen!
Next up, determining what university has the most to offer Brett… So far, he has been invited as a recruit to Furman and Citadel. Brett is interested in engineering, so both of these schools have something other than football as a draw. Admittedly, Citadel is has an edge regarding their school of engineering.
Any thoughts or comments?
Marc and I both think he would do exceptionally well at the Citadel. Football isn’t front and center like at some other institutions but he will get a great education and have life long contacts with many of our future’s movers and shakers.
Plus this will give all of us more reasons to go to Charleston!
Thank you for your reply!
I love the idea of Brett attending Citadel for many reasons too! He would make a great addition to their football program, that goes without saying, but also, academically, they have a lot to offer him, since he is on an engineering track.
We have visited their school a number of times, and Brett has been to a recent game as a recruit. There is nothing that we don’t like…
Pamela completed the application and it has been submitted.
We still should look at other universities I believe, maybe five total, then rank them in order of what is best for Brett, then rank them for which schools have a great match athletically, compare the two rankings and see what comes out on top.
Thanks again for your input, it means a lot to us as we travel along a new path!
