Hudson's Gary Myrick, who played a variety of positions in his only season for the Cobras, is making an official visit to Valdosta State this weekend according to Hudson head coach Justin Fenton.

Fenton said that Myrick is hopeful the Blazers will extend a scholarship offer during the visit.

"Talking to their coach, I'm pretty sure they're going to offer," Fenton said.

Myrick was an all-Sunshine Athletic Conference first team selection at defensive end after recording 42 tackles and 11 sacks. Myrick also caused three fumbles and recovered two.

"Gary's really enjoyed talking to their coaches," Fenton said. "They're a team that's won national championships. It would be a great program for Gary to consider."
