Tuttle: Biddy, Garrett sign on the dotted line
Tuttle had two players sign letters of intent Wednesday. Linebacker and running back Ethan Biddy is headed to the Air Force Academy and linebacker Jake Garrett is headed to Southern Nazarene. Here’s a few leftovers from the story I wrote on Biddy.
Tuttle coach Phil Koons knows a lot about Air Force. His son Sterling is a cadet there, so he knows what Biddy is in for though he takes pride in preparing him for what lies ahead.
“It’s hard not to get choked up when you see these guys,” Koons said. “You get to know them in grade school and you watch them grow into young men. You like to think you had a part of them getting there by being so demanding. As far as the time and physical constraints we put on them it prepares them for what they’re going to experience.”
As for Biddy, he’s excited about the opportunity to play college football on the Division I level. Air Force got interested in him as a junior. He also drew interest from Southwestern, UCO and several more Division II schools. He leaves behind a strong legacy as one of the school’s best players.
“I hope I left a legacy of hard work and living by the examples God sets,” Biddy said. “I hope the guys coming up behind me can follow it.”
