Dowdy going to Delta
Trey Dowdy was a freshman when he saw two Byhalia seniors sign football scholarships – Chris Rayford with Mississippi State and Curtis Akins with Memphis.
“I saw all that excitement on signing day – getting their pictures taken and everything,” Dowdy said. “I wanted to be just like them. That was my dream.”
On Wednesday of last week, in the school library, the offensive lineman signed a football scholarship with Mississippi Delta Community College. After a couple of years there, he hopes to play at a senior college – like Rayford and Akins.
