Brett with Mom (Pamela Hoyt)
No rest for our son, Brett…
For those who don’t know, he’s the center for the Easley High School varsity football team, so it goes without saying that his week is filled with excitement, from the normal workout and practice routine, to the Friday night games, in addition to the weekly academic grind.
However, over the last week, Easley has played a major rival team (Wren), which Easley dominated 48-13, and earlier on Friday, Brett and Pamela attended the Easley Touchdown Club meeting where Brett was presented with the “Player of the Week” award for the incredible skill he demonstrated at the Daniel game!
On Saturday, August 8th, still exhausted from the Wren game the night before, Brett woke up at 6:30 and headed out to take the ACT, then as soon as he got home, we loaded the car and headed to Furman University where he had been invited to attend the Coastal Carolina game and tour the school as a recruit. In spite of the torrential rains, he stuck it out and had a great time, and learned a bit more about Furman.
Just a week ago, Brett traveled several hours to Charleston, SC to attend a game there as a recruit at the Citidel after playing the night before.
He’s also been interviewed on TV and listed and interviewed as the WMYA MY 40 “Scholar Athlete of the Week” a couple weeks back and we finally received that footage on DVD just the other day. We didn’t get to see it as we were at the game as they aired it, so we had to order it.
BTW: Easley is 4 and 0. You might want to check out a game to see the powerhouse in action.
