After only two years of 11-man football, Carrollwood Day has its first Division I player.

Patriots quarterback Billy Embody will join resurgent Dallas-based program Southern Methodist University as a walk-on after earning two academic scholarships from the school, CDS coach Lane McLaughlin said.

Embody, who owns a GPA above 4.0, visited the SMU campus this past weekend. He's also in line for the school's Hunt Leadership Scholarship which, in addition to his two academic scholarships, would cover his annuaul tuition with some left to spare, McLaughlin said.

"He's already got an SMU bumper sticker on his car," McLaughlin said.

In the last two seasons, Embody has passed for nearly 3,900 yards, 43 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

SMU, a member of Conference USA, won the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl last season.
