Dallas Johnson, a senior at Appling Christian Academy, has committed to play football at Shorter University.
The 2013-14 season will be Shorter’s third year of transition into Division II sports.
Shorter participates in the Gulf South Conference against powerhouses like Valdosta State and more. Coach Phil Jones will enter his ninth season as the Hawks head football coach.
Some may remember Coach Jones had his first head coaching position at Jeff Davis in the early 70s. Jones has a passion for Christian leadership and fostering Christ-like relationships among his players and coaches. He feels relationships are the cornerstone of the Shorter football program.
Dallas is excited to transition to the next level. Shorter’s football program and University has many of the same qualities that Dallas has enjoyed as an Eagle at ACA.
