Hempstead High School senior Wyatt Bush has signed a letter of intent with Trinity University in San Antonio. Bush will attend Trinity University on an academic scholarship and plans to join the Tigers this fall to play football under Coach Jerheme Urban.
Family, friends, coaches, teachers and administrators, along with fellow teammates and classmates were on hand to witness the event and show support for Bush at the signing that took place on Tuesday, March 5, in the HHS Competition Gym at Hempstead High School.
Prior to the signing, Head Football Coach Royce Hill recognized Bush as being a leader and true student athlete. "Wyatt is an exceptional young man that I was blessed to have an opportunity to coach,” said Coach Hill. “He's the ultimate example of what a true student-athlete is!"
Bush served as Captain of the football team for the past two years. His teammates would agree that Bush didn’t say a whole lot but he lead by example. “He would do things the right way and expect others to follow,” said Coach Hill.
Bush didn’t have a whole lot to say on signing day, but he thanked everyone for coming out and for helping him along the way. “Without most of you I wouldn’t be where I’m at, so thank you for everything,” he said.
Bush, an athlete who was highly sought out both athletically and academically by several universities picked Trinity as his best choice to further his education as a pre-medical student and help prepare him for medical school.
As a four year letterman for the Bobcats, Bush was selected as Second team All-District Offensive Lineman his sophomore year and as First team All-District Offensive Lineman both his junior and senior year.
Academically, Bush has received Academic All-District each year and was selected Academic All State his senior year.
In addition to football, Bush participates in powerlifting and track. He is very active in high school and gives back to his community through his involvement in FFA and Beta Club.
Bush plans to become a doctor and continue to give back to the local community.
Congratulations to Wyatt Bush on his accomplishments and scholarship to Trinity University! Hempstead ISD wishes him the very best in his future endeavors.
