We told you about Heather L.’s talented son, Dakarai, in the August edition of the Global Explorer. College Signing Day was February 3, 2016, and he committed to the University of South Dakota on a full ride football scholarship where he will study Sports Medicine/Management.
“While South Dakota is far away from home in Florida, we are so excited to see him start this next chapter in his life and we are so very proud of him,” says Heather. “He had a total of nine offers and six of them were a full ride.”
Having the full ride certainly takes the pressure off financially and his family is thrilled with his achievements. Mostly, they are happy and very grateful for his opportunity to go to college and realize his dream.
“He started working toward this goal when he stepped on the field to play flag football at 5 years old. He has worked hard and definitely deserves this scholarship,” Heather concludes.
