PSJ’s Worley signs with Faulkner University

Published: Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 09:22 AM.

Over and over again last week, as he prepared to sign a scholarship to play football at the next level, Tyler Worley heard about how Faulkner University’s gain would be Port St. Joe’s loss.

And as coach after coach talked of his surprise and happiness to be present when Worley signed his letter of intent to the NAIA college located in Montgomery, AL, the foundation of that sentiment was clear.

Here, in Worley, was a young man who had matured in more ways than physical, who had cleared so many obstacles, who had worked his way behind that desk to sign on the dotted line with parents, coaches, teammates and classmates in attendance.

His high school position coach Kesley Colbert summed it up.

“As good a football player as he is, Tyler Worley is a better person,” Colbert said.

Worley himself said he rarely gave playing college football much of a thought for most of his high school career.

His coaches, they said uniformly, didn’t necessarily picture it either.
