On the pitch, certain players can help a team’s confidence just by their presence, and for the Arrows, that was midfielder Grant Hudson.
Mississippi College took notice, and on Feb. 22, Hudson signed a letter of intent to join coach Kevin Johns and become a Choctaw.
“Mississippi College has a great program,” Hudson said,”and under Coach Johns the Choctaws have a proven track record. I’m excited to be part of that team.”
Clinton boys head coach Tyler Wade said Hudson’s strongest asset is his work ethic. “With Grant, work ethic is the biggest thing he’s got,” Wade said. “He works hard, he studies the game, he knows everybody’s position and what they are supposed to do and uses that to make everybody around him better.”
Grant served as a team Captain his senior junior years and was selected to play in the Mississippi All-Star Game after his senior season.
Hudson won the 100% Award his sophomore as well as his senior season. He also won the the Midfielder MVP award his junior year.
Grant is very active at Clinton High School where he is part of the Anchor Club, NHS, SADD and FCA.
Grant is a member of the Mississippi Brilla Team and is the son of Brian and Aimee Hudson.
