TRUSSVILLE— Hewitt-Trussville Huskies women’s basketball guard Morgan Kirk signed to continue her college career at Tuskegee University on Nov. 14.
Kirk believed Tuskegee felt like the right decision from her first visit and loved the vision Golden Tigers head coach Trelanne Powell has for the future of the program. “She is a new coach and she reached out to me and made me feel like it could be done andI could be a part of something big,” she said.
Head coach of the Hewitt-Trussville women’s basketball Tonya Hunter gives high praises to her once shy eighth grade player. “Morgan is a living testament of hard work paying off. She’s a leader on and off of the court and is going to be a part of something special in her time at Tuskegee,” she said.
Kirk is no stranger to big time basketball as she has been a part of the recent area championships and sweet 16 appearances in her time as a Husky and believes that winning pedigree will help her in her college success.
Hunter said, “Morgan is going to do whatever it takes to win. . . She’s a competitor, a leader and a wonderful teammate and the program would not be where it is today without her.”
