Mustang's Irwin to play in all-America game; Farrow graduates
I swung by Mustang High School yesterday to visit with Bronson Irwin and learned that he’ll be playing in a high school all-American game in South Carolina on Jan. 2.
It’s the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. Here are the rosters, which also include Sequoyah-Tahlequah’s Chris Littlehead, an OSU commit.
Irwin plans to move to Norman next month and begin attending classes at Oklahoma for the spring semester on Jan. 19. His future roommate at OU, Austin Woods of Rockwall, Texas, is also playing in the O-D All-American Bowl.
On my way out of the school, I bumped into running back Daniel Farrow, who is always smiling. But this smile was just a little bigger. He had just completed his coursework and was officially a high school graduate.
Having battled through a difficult life both in school and out of it — he lost his single mother to cancer at age 9 — Farrow focused his attention on academics this year and has completed his high school education, which required a lot of after-school work and extreme commitment for someone who had never been asked to commit himself to the classroom that way before.
