GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — We've made it our mission at ABC 27 to continue recognizing our senior athletes and their accomplishments this year, and at Gadsden County High the Jaguars are celebrating another senior athlete who is headed to college.
Keith Bush, Jr. signed with Hillsborough Community College where he'll play basketball.
Bush is the first in his immediate family to attend college and he said he's excited for the next step in his career, and excited to stay close to home.
"It's so surreal," said Bush. "You dream about this moment not knowing if it'll come true. You put the work in, now that it's finally here, I still haven't had it sink in yet. All the hard work, every night in the gym, I worked so hard for this moment. There's been a lot of trials and tribulations. Knowing I could get this opportunity, I'm very humbled and blessed."
Congratulations, Keith Bush, Jr.!
