Three Hope Athletes to Continue Their Athletic Careers
Hope- Grace Trauger, KD Gulley, and Ja’Kobi Scott all signed letters of intent last week to continue their academic and athletic careers.  

All three were honored by multiple coaches speaking to other student-athletes about hard work paying off. All three of these athletes had multiple coaches marvel at their work-ethics and how coachable they eah have been. (Photos Below)

Trauger signed with the Texas A&M-Texarkana Softball Program. She s a senior this year and is looking forward to representing Hope this upcoming season. A lot of great things were said about Trauger by Coach Daniell, as well as her teammates, and pitching and hitting coaches. 

KD Gulley is going to be a Reddie, as he signed with Henderson State to continue his football career. When asked how much the opportunity to play at the next level means to him, he responded, “It’s really a big dream come true. It's a big promise I made to my Pops and it’s an electric moment to me. I don’t really have words right now.”  Gulley has been a leader all year, not only in football or the weight room, but in the classroom as well. 

Ja’Kobi Scott signed with Arkansas Baptist, as he is going to continue his football career at the next level. The Buffaloes are getting a good one and a hard-worker. “It feels great, it’s going to be a journey, I’m going to have to work hard and I’m looking forward to going up there and show-up and show-out,” Scott said this past week when asked about how it felt to continue with his football career. 

We at SWARK.Today want to congratulate Grace, KD, and Ja’Kobi on their achievements and wish them the best of luck.
