Honeycutt to play football for BSC
Brewer High School’s Mark Honeycutt will be getting a chance to continue his football career this fall at Birmingham-Southern College.
The four-year starter for the Patriots will have an opportunity to play for the Division III Panthers. While the school doesn’t offer athletic scholarships, Honeycutt will be receiving several academic scholarships that will help him pay for school.
Tina Honeycutt, his mother, said Mark received a Trustee Scholarship worth $18,000 a year for four years. He’s also received a one-time $1,000 Joe Wheeler Scholarship.
Mark said he’s excited to get the opportunity playing in college.
“I was excited when I got the chance to play college football,” Mark said. “I like the coaches and the school.”
Playing on the offensive line hasn’t allowed him as much time in the spotlight. However, he did receive honors including all-county, all-area and all-Rocket City Region teams.
Position coach Mark Edwards said Birmingham-Southern will be getting a great person when Honeycutt heads to college this fall.
“He’s a great kid who’s willing to work hard,” Edwards said. “He doesn’t complain and he’s a great teammate.
Honeycutt said he plans to study pre-engineering and then transfer to complete his electrical engineering degree.
