PSJ’s Worley signs with Faulkner University

Then midway through his senior season a letter arrived in the mail for Worley.

The letter came from Faulkner University.

 “They asked me to take a visit and I went up on Homecoming weekend,” Worley said. “They had a nice facility and great coaches.

“I’m very excited. I never thought I’d get the chance to play college ball.”

All the pieces fell into place and last week Worley, the scrappy kid who few envisioned playing college football just two years ago, was college bound.

Gannon said one of the advantages heading to Faulkner is that is fields a junior varsity team, allowing Worley a chance to become fully acclimated to college life and football for one year.

Worley said he was looking forward to a year on the junior varsity and said the goal now was to “just keep working hard in the weight room, get bigger and stronger.”
